Leading the Way in Sustainability

Green building. Sustainable design. High-performing buildings. Different words, similar goal: creating highly efficient, socially responsible buildings.

For more than 30 years, that’s been 2RW Consultants’ focus. We deliver innovative and efficient MEP/FP systems and comprehensive energy consulting services to help building owners reduce total cost of ownership, improve occupant comfort and safety, and tread lightly on the planet. With more than 70 LEED projects in our portfolio and one-third of our technical staff carrying LEED credentials, we’re highly qualified to deliver unparalleled energy savings on any building project.

As energy plays an increasingly significant role in many organizations’ strategic planning initiatives, it’s critical to partner with a firm you trust for MEP/FP design and energy consulting; one that has the focus and expertise to deliver long-term energy and cost savings and quality-of-life benefits. We strive to be that trusted partner—one who will guide you and serve as your advocate throughout every project.

Energy by Design

This is the philosophy that drives our business. It means that optimizing energy use is the primary goal of everything we design. We stand ready to apply this philosophy to your projects to help you:

  • Design and build high-performing buildings
  • Navigate complex MEP/FP system options
  • Respond to energy policy developments
  • Understand when and how to employ green technologies and alternative energy sources
  • Make informed choices based on energy performance data, your strategic goals, and your budget and timeline

Commissioning

Commissioning

Verifying that building systems have been designed and installed properly is a critical component of the building process and ensures you get the intended results from your MEP systems. With a full range of Cx services (re-commissioning, retro-commissioning, and LEED commissioning), we have the qualifications and experience to verify that your systems are performing as specified and meet your or your clients’ goals for sustainability, workplace productivity, and occupant safety and security.
