Plumbing & Fire Protection

UW Madison Center for Dairy Research - Madison, WI


We’re dedicated to making a positive impact where it matters most. Our passion lies in enhancing lives and organizations – from ensuring ultra-pure water in healthcare facilities and protecting millions with fire suppression systems, to delighting waterpark visitors.

Our expertise stretches across industries such as healthcare, education, government, hospitality, and correctional facilities. Our team excels in tackling design challenges for unique environments like jails, waterparks, and casinos. Whether it’s designing systems for new buildings or retrofitting existing ones, we optimize designs, develop performance-based specifications, and evaluate system conditions and expansion capabilities.

Collaboration is at the heart of our process. We work closely with our clients from the early planning stages, ensuring a clear understanding of their needs and goals. Staying deeply engaged throughout design and construction phases, our team delivers cost-effective, efficient solutions that exceed expectations.

In addition to traditional design-bid-build services, we offer design-assist services as a sub-consultant to contractors. Our extensive experience and ability to understand complex drawings is key in reducing risk and cost, and increasing speed-to-market—crucial for large, complex, or fast-track design build projects.
