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.
