CHALLENGES FACED

LIMITED ROOF SPACE FOR KITCHEN HVAC AND EXHAUST SYSTEMS:

Challenge: Locating kitchen HVAC, exhaust, and make-up air systems posed a challenge due to very limited roof space for equipment installation.

Solution: Our engineers conducted a meticulous assessment of available roof space, strategically placing kitchen HVAC, exhaust, and make-up air systems to maximize efficiency while adhering to spatial constraints.

BALANCING EXISTING AND NEW HOOD SYSTEMS:

Challenge: Integrating existing hood exhaust and make-up air systems with new additions while maintaining optimal balance posed challenges in terms of airflow and efficiency.

Solution: Pro Engineering Consulting implemented a comprehensive balancing strategy, ensuring seamless integration of existing and new hood systems while maintaining efficient kitchen ventilation.

REUSE OF EXISTING ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT:

Challenge: Re-utilizing existing electrical equipment required a thorough evaluation to determine which loads were to remain and identify breakers that could be repurposed for new loads.

Solution: Our team conducted a detailed assessment of the existing electrical system, carefully identifying loads to be retained and strategically reusing breakers for new equipment, ensuring both safety and efficiency.
