John O’Connell, PE was Featured in the October Issue CSE’s Issue MEP Roundtable

By | Team Members | No Comments

Last month’s Consulting-Specifying Engineer issue featured our own John O’Connell, PE in the MEP Roundtable: Learning How to Engineer College, Universities Better.

John discusses the trends that are emerging and impacting engineering designs within college and university buildings. “Many campuses that we have worked with have in-house staff that install security devices such as cameras and card-scan entry panels themselves. Providing the appropriate infrastructure for these devices is important since most of this work occurs during the late stage of construction where many ceilings have been closed and substantial finish work has been already completed.”
