Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning

The size of our firm allows us to work on several projects at a given time, shifting manpower resources from project to project during the different phases of design as required by project schedules.
Our clients are generally architects, private individuals, educational institutions, religious institutions, corporations, local, state and federal government agencies, and other engineers.
Staggs & Fisher Consulting Engineers, Inc. primarily services the Commonwealth of Kentucky, but our services have branched outside of the state to include Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Indiana and West Virginia.
Our firm’s main purpose is to analyze a project in order to make sound engineering judgments as to the system recommended from the standpoint of first cost, energy efficiency, operational and maintenance costs, safety, flexibility, space considerations, and usage of the building to satisfy the client’s needs and requirements. Engineering is a practical science and our priority is to provide a safe and livable environment.
We select the best-qualified design team in order to meet the specific needs of each individual project. On some projects, special consultants are utilized to assist us in the design process and to select the best mechanical and electrical systems for the project. The designated Project Manager for each project is always a Principal of the firm. The Principal-In-Charge maintains client contact throughout the project.
The most important member of the design team is the client and we go above and beyond to maintain their involvement throughout the design process.
During the design process, we work with the client’s representatives to develop and select mechanical and electrical systems which will provide the required environment within budget constraints.
We provide reasonable options for review, in order to allow the development of ideas throughout the design process. Throughout this process, we advise the client of budget, operating, and maintenance costs related to various mechanical and electrical systems.
Quality control of design is of the utmost importance. Conferences are held between design personnel to produce the most complete and accurate set of documents possible. Cross‑checking between electrical and the various phases of mechanical, together with architectural and structural, is constantly performed.
Staggs & Fisher Consulting Engineers, Inc. has designed and observed construction for projects in many areas of Kentucky as well as outside of the state. Our firm employs a full‑time field representative who makes every effort to visit a project weekly. In addition to our field representative, one of the Principals will visit a project at least once a month as well as attend construction meetings. Our goal is to be as involved in the design and construction process as possible to make sure projects remain on schedule and to ensure owner satisfaction.

The Duthie Center for Engineering at the University of Louisville has received the prestigious LEED Gold status issued by USGBC for building certification.

The University of Louisville Clinical and Translational Research Buiding has received the prestigious LEED Gold status issued by USGBC for building certification. This is the first Laboratory in the state to receive LEED certification, and among the largest of its size in the United States. The A/E team was met with an extreme challenge because of the fact that the owner did not start this project with a requirement for LEED, until after it was designed and construction was under way. Because Staggs & Fisher had designed this project for energy efficient operation (even without LEED requirements) from the beginning, it only required minor changes to become certified.
The University of Louisville Clinical and Translational Research Building opened on October 12, 2009.
