Central Plants

A central plant or central utility plant (CUP) serves as the hub for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing operations in large-scale projects, such as hospitals and campuses. CUP systems provide the electricity, heating, and cooling needed to maintain a comfortable environment in your building. Our teams consider load requirements, energy efficiency, scalability, redundancy, maintenance, safety, environmental impact, and cost to design the best central plant system for your engineering project.
