Facet Engineering provides strong engineers and leaders in their profession to serve our clients on unique, challenging, and exciting engineering design, construction project management.
Facet Engineering is a DBE certified firm that provides traction power, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, SCADA, and communication engineering services from our offices in Chicago and Atlanta and does work around the country on complex public works projects.
Facet Engineering offers design and construction management services for traction power systems for powering the electric railway system, including Traction Power Sub Stations (TPSS), and wayside distribution systems.
TPSS includes AC Switchgear, DC Switchgear, Rectifier Transformer, Rectifiers, SCADA RTU, control power batteries, and the ancillary systems. Traction power distribution system includes contact rails, insulators, cables, and negative return system. Our team has experience working in several traction power projects for multiple agencies including Chicago Transit Authority (CTA), Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA), Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS), and City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works.
Facet Engineering has engineers with extensive experience designing and renovating moveable bridges throughout the country. This specialized engineering service includes electrical power (AC and DC controlled), instrumentation and controls, and mechanical machinery disciplines.
We have key personnel with over 25 years experience in leadership roles on moveable bridge projects. This enables Facet to provide its clients with a continuity of high-level engineering services. Thus, our clients have the confidence to know they are benefiting from the in-depth knowledge base offered by us on moveable bridge power, controls, mechanical, and machinery systems designed that meet each client’s specific needs and preferences.
Facet Engineering offers engineering design services on various types of lighting applications; including roadway lighting (residential, arterial, and highway), exterior and interior lighting projects. We have a broad range of experience in lighting design and development. This experience is for both small and large-scale projects for public and professional environments like office buildings, hospitals and schools.
We utilize the latest software to generate photometric calculation to demonstrate compliance with client and the latest IES standards. We pride ourselves in providing energy-efficient and aesthetically-pleasing lighting designs by knowing and applying best and latest developments in the industry.
Members of our Facet team have written lighting standards for many municipalities and agencies and is consulted by lighting manufacturers and municipalities/agencies to assist and evaluate unique applications and future lighting systems.
Facet Engineering offers engineering design services with a team of electrical and communication experts in implementing modern, sustainable electrical design on new construction projects or improving the infrastructure of an existing system.
Our engineers have the expertise to provide load studies, design power distribution systems (medium and low voltage AC applications), on-site emergency and standby power, Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), and energy conservation for the simplest to the more complex applications. We utilize the latest ETAP software suites to prepare short circuit and selective coordination studies and arc-flash analysis.
Our electrical engineers are licensed in multiple States across the U.S. with years of practical industry experience. Our dedication is to develop safer, more reliable, energy-efficient, and more sustainable electrical systems on both large and small-scale projects.
Our communication engineers provide solutions for fiber optic distribution, copper backbone, SCADA/DCS, CCTV, Public address, telephone, security, and fire alarm systems for simple and complex.
These and other services provided by our electrical and communication engineers provides complete and comprehensive attention on all projects.
Facet Engineering offers a complete MEP package. Our qualified team include Mechanical and Plumbing specialists that are highly skilled and experienced in the comprehensive design, improvement and integration of heating, cooling and ventilating systems in improving safety and energy efficiency to create responsible, sustainable designs.
We are uniquely qualified to analyze existing systems, diagnose and determine the best course of action and implement these solutions. Our licensed engineers work on mechanical infrastructure, including HVAC and exhaust systems, Direct Digital Control (DDC), and piped heating and cooling water generation and distribution systems to provide innovative, energy efficient, low utility cost, and emissions reduction solutions. Our depth of expertise provide designs, including; heating, ventilating, air conditioning; central heating and cooling plants; cooling: electric, steam and gas absorption waste heat; heating: gas, electric, coal, oil; and electrical cogeneration plant.
We include a broad range of plumbing services for domestic and commercial water supply and waste systems, grease waste and sewage to natural gas, sprinklers and compressed air. Our desire is to design and implement efficient, eco-friendly solutions.
Facet Engineering offers a full range corrosion protection and control services. This begins with advising regarding design of structures and mechanical systems to minimize the potential for corrosion.
Our licensed and NACE certified engineers have extensive experience in the design of cathodic protection systems for structures both buried, such as pipelines, and submerged, such as docks, dams, and the interiors of water storage tanks. Our capabilities include pre-design testing, system design, start-up and commissioning, and periodic performance testing.
We have expertise in the mitigation of stray current interference, both at the source and at the impacted structure. This includes testing to identify sources and magnitude of stray current, and design of mitigative measures.
