Good design is capable of integrating into the environment and minimizing negative social, economic and ecological impacts. MODUS takes pride in its ability to serve the client’s wants and needs without neglecting the environment. These designs are often more efficient and effective. Each design is made possible by our talented and award winning engineers. MODUS is constantly pursuing excellence in energy and environmental conscientious designs, embodying LEED, geothermal, and solar and photovoltaic systems.
Each design provides us with the opportunity to implement innovative ideas and cutting edge technology. Our Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) awards display our abilities to execute efficient and sustainable designs.
Truly sustainable designs incorporate multiple sources of renewable energy. This includes solar thermal heating and photovoltaic energy, as key elements for reducing a facility’s carbon footprint. MODUS engineering has experience in the design and application of these services and currently has several projects under design using this technology.
MODUS is a pioneer in the application of geothermal energy into building HVAC systems. Our first geothermal project was in the early 1980s and that project introduced the concept to the Midwest. Since that time, MODUS has applied many different types and styles of this technology to fit our client’s needs. We are experts.
MODUS is proud to offer in-depth experience within the health care market. Combining our expertise in MEPT design, infection control, and medical equipment planning provides our clients with state of the art technology and elite facilities.
Other health care services MODUS offers are:
