Know it inside and out.
Whether it's a specific mechanical or electrical project or a vision for a new building, we start by knowing the challenge inside out. We understand the intricacies of each task, and how multiple disciplines ultimately need to work together to achieve the best possible results. The breadth and depth of SSM's facilities engineering resources guarantee the integrated approach. But we do a lot of listening, too. Working with owners, architects, agents, and process engineers to understand the goals, needs, budgets, and unique considerations. Add our penchant for innovative thinking to the picture, and you'll find SSM to be the best single-source solution for any facilities engineering challenge. No matter how many facets.
From ground up solutions to retrofit and reuse, we bring the team and technology to ensure the result you envision. We are leaders in the use of High Definition Scanning (HDS) and Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology to streamline the process end-to-end, from planning and design through construction. And we do it with a passion for a sustainable built environment and economic operational performance. Workflow planning for occupied spaces is also an SSM strong suit. So if being “down” during renovation isn't an option, you have definitely found your solution here.
SPOTTLIGHT on Long- Term Thinking
Axe Throwing - SSM was involved in a renovation project to structurally evaluate the existing roof structure for support of new units for heating and cooling the axe-throwing space.
Cold water streams provide excellent fish habitats. Unfortunately many streams in southeastern Pennsylvania run too warm to support fish hatcheries. Since most streams in agrarian areas lack sufficient vegetative buffer, tree planting programs are a common practice to stabilize stream banks and provide much needed shade to cool water temperatures.
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has introduced a program to make rebates available to businesses, governments, and other entities that install electric vehicle charging stations on their properties.
Prices for solar systems have fallen by nearly 60% over the past five years. The lowered prices combined with incentives currently available make solar particularly attractive. Find out more at the Solar Seminar in February.
