The Right Team for the Project

As a turnkey supplier of Design and Engineering, ACS assumes overall responsibility for the project including assembling and managing our own internal staff, design partners and equipment suppliers. We assemble the right team, based on project requirements, client preferences, Industry relationships, and vendor and supplier knowledge and experience. Our staff of mechanical, electrical, test and measurement, and controls engineers bring knowledge and years of experience to all phases of the project. They work directly with the client team as well as all architectural, MEP (Mechanical Electrical Piping), civil and structural partners on the project.

Project Execution – Benefits of Single Source Delivery

One of the many key benefits of the ACS single source delivery model is that phases overlap, with emphasis placed first on equipment with long-lead time and where the specification significantly impacts the supporting utilities and building infrastructure and design. Procurement of equipment can begin prior to construction and sequenced to support the construction schedule. Construction starts sooner, which shortens the overall project timeframe.
