Power Design, Inc. has expanded its electrical and low voltage offerings to include full mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineering services.
In support of the expansion, Raymond Lemaster recently joined Power Design to lead a growing group of mechanical engineers. With more than 10 years of MEP experience, Lemaster is a registered professional engineer (PE) and qualified commissioning provider (QCxP).
He previously held positions as the director of engineering with MAAMECH Engineering Services and as project manager at JMT Engineering, with an education in mechanical engineering and HVAC.
"Some of the challenges our customers face in hiring standalone electrical and mechanical engineers is multiple points of contact and lack of coordination," said Misha Zeltser, vice president of engineering at Power Design. "In effort to fulfill the needs of our customers, our new in-house mechanical engineers will be able to provide complete MEP design offerings. Unlike our competitors who typically create MEP firms via acquisition, this will be an organically grown team that aligns seamlessly with our existing business model and culture."
Lemaster's team of mechanical engineers will spend the next year learning Power Design's business model and the best ways to integrate, with the expectation to take on new MEP design projects mid-2018.
