Stantec HVAC consultants is Founded by Mr. Tejas Shah i, who is an experienced Mechanical Engineer with PDRA. Mr. Shah has acquired extensive experience in India. He is associated with Air Conditioning & Refrigeration field for over 22 years. Perform the engineering services through own (in-house) resources. Omit the consulting engineering services (with no in-house capability) and approach the contracting/supplier industry directly for turnkey proposals, which includes design, supply, installation and commissioning. The second option (direct industry approach) may look economical on the face of it, but poses several disadvantages that have frequently resulted in far higher cost than the additional cost for a consulting engineering service. These disadvantages include typically: Being commercially independent from any contractor or supplier, the consulting engineer is in an ideal position to evaluate alternative system concepts during the design stages of a project. These investigations may save the client multiples of the consultant's cost in capital and running cost of plant. The contractor's design cost is built into the tender prices and would be the same or more than the design fees of a consultant. The contractor will also build into the tender price the cost of design liability insurance to cover design mistakes or poor design. Because these costs are normally hidden, the contracting organisation has no way of knowing what the design cost is. On the other hand, a consulting engineer's design fees are clearly stipulated and agreed and can be compared to internationally accepted norms. When only one contractor/supplier is approached, there is usually no way of evaluating the competitiveness of his price, unless the scope is standardized, or can be compared to similar scope of works recently procured. Consulting engineers normally are able to negotiate a competitive price from a single contractor/supplier by using schedules of quantities and applying known industry rates. When more than one contractor/supplier is approached it is frequently very difficult to compare the technical quality and scope of tender offers and the lowest price may well be based on inferior scope and quality compared to other tender offers. Also, without in-house capability the contracting organisation will find it difficult to evaluate the quality of works/equipment offered. Consulting engineers provide technical specifications and all tenders are based on the same scope and quality of works. Some contractors/suppliers offer only part of the scope (with resultant reduced price) and then offer the remaining scope during the contract at a high rate or price. Consulting engineers represent the contracting organisation (client) during the construction stage of a project and verify on the client's behalf whether the installation complies with specified requirements.

Mr. Shah is well versed with various statutory requirements of Government agencies, Indian Standards.FDA Smacna, electrical, BMS, etc. M/s. Stantec HVAC consultant is staffed with well experienced Consultant, Draftsmen, Auto-Cad operators and supporting administrative staff. Industry Topics The cost of consulting engineering services: is it worth it? With consulting engineering cost (for a full normal service) adding typically 8% to a project cost, the question may well be asked if such additional cost can be justified. The following options are normally available if no consulting engineer is to be appointed: Perform the engineering services through own (in-house) resources. Omit the consulting engineering services (with no in-house capability) and approach the contracting/supplier industry directly for turnkey proposals, which includes design, supply, installation and commissioning. In the case of the first option (using in-house resources), the cost of establishing and maintaining in-house engineering capabilities should be justified by the long term utilization of such capabilities and should be lower than the cost of appointing consulting engineers on a project basis. If such in-house capability does not fall within the scope of the organisations core business, it may be difficult to recruit or keep adequate personnel since experience has proven that the best engineers would rather work for an organisation with a core business consistent to their expertise. The hidden cost (including company overheads etc.) of maintaining an in-house capability should also be taken into account. Many organisations are now rather out-sourcing expertise that does not fall into their core business. The second option (direct industry approach) may look economical on the face of it, but poses several disadvantages that have frequently resulted in far higher cost than the additional cost for a consulting engineering service. These disadvantages include typically: Being commercially independent from any contractor or supplier, the consulting engineer is in an ideal position to evaluate alternative system concepts during the design stages of a project. These investigations may save the client multiples of the consultant's cost in capital and running cost of plant. The contractor's design cost is built into the tender prices and would be the same or more than the design fees of a consultant.

My wife, Diane, and I were on a wonderful cusire to Alaska and the morning of 9/11/01 we were anchored in the Hubbard Glacier field and it was a bright, beautiful, and awesome morning. As we watched the calving of the glaciers a older man came running by to tell some friends about the planes crashing into the twin towers. We were stunned and then spent the next several hours waatching the events unfold on a little TV in our stateroom. There were some people who were on the ship who had family or friendds in New York who were understandably frantic trying to get additional information and trying to contact them but cell phones had little, if any, reception at the location where we were anchored. The Cruise line immediately announced that the Captain was confering with the company executives to determine if the cusire should end and return immediately to Vancouver which is where the cusire started and was to end. Several hours later the Captain announced that since no airlines were going to be allowed to fly in the US it would not help to end the cusire. The Captain further announced that they would assist anyone who had family or friends in the New York area try to contact them on the ships communication devices. Several ministers on board then agreed to arrange a memorial service to be held in the ships theatre the next morning. It was a beautiful memorial service and all the ships entertainers also participated in the service. When we returned to Vancouver on Friday at the end of the cusire it took quite awhile to disembark from the ship. Since planes were still not allowed to fly in the US we needed to find another way to get back to North Dakota. We took a cab to the airport and went looking for a rental car. The airport was desserted so there was no line for a rental and we got one which we agreed to drive to the Airport in Seattle and then exchange for another rental to drive back to North Dakota. The rental car company said they would waive any drop charge under the circumstances. We found our rental car and headed for the border. When we neared the border we found cars lined up in 3 rows with each row at least a mile long. The authorities were runiing dogs by every vehicle in line and then when you got to the check point they would open all doors and trunks and remove the suitcases and either open them and inspect or have a dog come by the suit case. It took us 7 hours to get through the border. Interestingly, despite the long delay and the large number of people in line no one seemed distrurbed about either the inspections or the delay in the crossing. Also a number of the local Canadians were mingling with those of us in line and brought drinks and other goodies for us while we waited. Once we got through the border we headed for Seattle and exchanged cars about 3:00 AM and then drove out of Seattle because we did not want to stay in a large metro area. We finally stopped and found a motel about 5 in the morning and tried to get some sleep. We drove home to Bismarck in two days. The cusire line, the car rental people, and the airlines were all very accomodating. The whole experience was surreal as in Vancouver, at the border, in Seattle and in every town we stopped in as we drove home the people we spoke with were stunned at the event and everyone wondered what would happen worldwide as a result of the insane act of flying 2 planes into the twin towers and killing thousands of people.
