You might not have realized it, but mechanical engineers make a huge impact on the quality of your life. From the places you live and work in to the machines you use in your day-to-day routines and so much more, mechanical engineers have a hand in all of them.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, mechanical engineers make up one of the broadest categories of engineering. These professionals "research, design, develop, build, and test mechanical and thermal sensors and devices, including tools, engines, and machines."

But what exactly does a mechanical engineering firm do, and what does that mean for you? Here, we answer those questions for you.

What a mechanical engineering firm can do for you

Like the name implies, mechanical engineers design machines — but what exactly that means can vary from industry to industry and even between similar firms.

At PBS Engineers, our engineers specialize in electrical, mechanical, plumbing, fire protection, and telecommunication systems as well as high performance energy efficiency solutions for municipal, commercial, education, healthcare, and residential projects throughout the United States.

But at the heart of things, mechanical engineering firms build things to solve problems for other people — their creations just typically involve machinery in some shape or form. Many of our clients have come to us because of our know-how in designing LEED certified and Title 24 compliant designs, which further highlight our commitment to creating energy efficient and overall sustainable designs.

As a result, you'll often see mechanical engineers working with computer aided design and drafting (CADD) and computer aided manufacturing (CAM) programs to complete their projects. In fact, our firm uses the latest in CADD and building information modeling (BIM) technology to assure our clients that they're receiving nothing but the best work for their company's needs.

Our commitment to excellence is also why you'll typically see a range of disciplines on every project team, including professional engineers, LEED accredited professionals, and even registered communication distribution designers.

Because construction and development projects involve a lot of coordination and communication between members and between teams, it's important to work with a firm that has experience in the specific job you need.

Not only are we industry-leading experts in our fields of specialization, we also have experience linking up with a wide variety of professionals in different industries, and we bring that experience to every project to ensure that the work goes smoothly and the communication between our team and yours is seamless. This ensures that miscommunication — as well as the potential for mistakes — is kept to a minimum and there are no roadblocks or obstacles to slow down or stop your project.

Essentially, a mechanical engineering firm is the resource you need to ensure the mechanical aspects of your project run smoothly, and PBS Engineering is the best team for your company's needs.
