When executives at Freudenberg-NOK’s 6-acre manufacturing plant in Bristol, NH began planning for a massive energy-efficiency project late in 2014, they couldn’t have dreamed of reducing the facility’s carbon footprint by 50% and saving more than $1.1 million per year on energy costs.
Happens all the time. We walk into a facility for an initial visit and see a proliferation of pumps—here, there, everywhere. Nothing drives us crazier, because the overuse of pumps is inefficient and expensive, and with a little forethought and creative thinking, completely unnecessary.
Here’s how to avoid creating a pump nightmare in your facility
Single Accountability is the crucial factor in the smooth sailing of a design/build engineering project.
It seems out of fashion to take responsibility for one’s actions these days. The lack of accountability in today’s society has become an epidemic…
We offer a refreshing contrast by proactively taking comprehensive responsibility for all facets of design-build projects, from start to finish. As many customers have discovered, using multiple firms for different functions is often a recipe for disaster.
In high school, one of my science teachers had a penchant for trying to inspire students with clever quotations. One of his favorite proclamations was that “many a beautiful theory is ruined by one ugly fact.” The actual quotation by the famous biologist Thomas Huxley gets to a crucial point that most engineers miss. Applying the following scientific process immeasurably improves the creativity and results of engineered systems.
