Creating your Engineering Portfolio

You might expect an artist or a photographer to keep a portfolio of his or her past projects and works. When going to a new client or potential job interview, the portfolio helps show what the artist is capable of. Having an engineering portfolio is no different. Putting together a portfolio can help you get your engineering certificate or even your next promotion. Below, we take a closer look at what should be included in an engineering portfolio.

The Importance of Arc Flash Studies

An arc flash occurs when electricity jumps between two points in an electrical circuit. You may see this when you flip a light switch in a dark room. On a small scale, arc flashes are harmless. However, when arc flashes occur on large electrical systems or on industrial electric machinery, arc flashes can be quite dangerous and even deadly.

Required Engineering Skills NOT Taught in the Classroom

Having an engineering degree is a huge accomplishment. It means you’ve spent countless hours learning in the classroom and even more hours at home completing homework, studying, and designing projects. It can be quite a shock entering the workplace for the first time, especially when you learn that not all the skills required for success are taught in the classroom. Below, we take a look at three pivotal skills required for a successful engineering career.

The Light Bulb Moment: Understanding the Advantages of LED Lighting

In past years, incandescent and fluorescent lighting was the steadfast option for commercial buildings. Although these lights ultimately achieve the goal of providing ample lighting in large spaces and are energy efficient, they are slightly more expensive to utilize than traditional lighting solutions. But because of its potential payoff benefits, LED lighting is a great alternative lighting option. Many companies are quickly making the switch to LED lighting because they are energy efficient, long lasting, and less damaging. Below, we will dive deeper into the advantages of switching to LED lighting.

Principles of Sustainable Design: Understanding Photovoltaics

When energy from the sun is converted into usable energy, it is done through the science of the photovoltaic process. This process is what most people are referring to when they think of solar energy. Renewable energy sources are becoming more popular by the day as more buildings, both commercial and residential, are turning toward alternative energy. So what exactly are photovoltaics, and how does this science work?

Using Smart Micro-Grids in your Project

Sustainable technology buildings and localized business parks are taking advantage of smart microgrid technology. Large power plant systems can be costly and unreliable. A smart microgrid system takes the same concepts of a large power grid design and scales everything down to accommodate a small, local business park or campus. There are many applications for a smart microgrid installation, which come with sustainable benefits. Below, we will examine how smart microgrids work and their several benefits they can bring to your next building project.

Why Project Feasibility Analysis is Important

A feasibility study involves taking actions and asking questions to establish whether a project idea, plan, or thought is likely to succeed. An effective project feasibility study will guide you on whether it’s feasible to proceed with the idea, refine it, or even scrap it altogether. As a building owner, making a decision on projects such as electrical, mechanical, or piping updates can seem overwhelming, and that’s where professional engineering firms like Gausman and Moore come in.

5 Ways Healthcare Centers Can Enhance Energy Efficiency

Healthcare centers utilize large amounts of energy, therefore they can easily generate large amounts of energy waste. Did you know that eight percent of carbon emissions come from healthcare centers in the U.S.? Numerous machines such as CT scanners and lifesaving devices run at full power 24/7 in most cases. Most healthcare administrators find it an uphill task to save energy without compromising on patient care. Fortunately, that is possible through the following ways:

6 Tips for How to Save Energy in Your Office

Building owners and/or office managers know all too well how much a space’s energy consumption can affect their bottom line. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has estimated that roughly 33 percent of energy used in the U.S. is wasted. As energy costs continue to rise, you’ll want to get a handle on your office’s energy consumption to be green and save money. So whether you’re the building owner, property manager, or occupant, reduce your office’s energy bill and lower its carbon footprint with these six energy-saving tips:
