What’s New With Alares? In-House Architectural Staff

Architectural Staff at Alares 

 

Alares has expanded its in-house Architectural staff with the addition of Sunny Hwang, licensed AIA in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.   

 

This addition will grow, not only our general design capacity but also our Project Management expertise.  Sunny will be running projects in multiple public sector areas to include GSA, VA, and DHCD.  

In-house architectural resources are especially critical to Alares as the work required to support our mostly mechanical focus presents very unique challenges.   

First is the development of more detailed site conditions, an area in which we have a significant focus on 3D scanning and Revit modeling.  Following that is the continual challenge of ensuring that all work is coordinated – one of the more difficult tasks of the designer. 

Our mission is to improve the lives of our veterans through architectural and engineering design – swiftly, and without sacrificing quality.  Our team of Architects and Engineers shares a genuine and collective drive to find the best solutions to the projects our clients need to get done. 

Energy Efficiency in Hospitals: Lower Costs and Increase Comfort

Energy efficiency measures in hospitals can reduce the total amount of energy used each year and lower utility costs.

At the same time, new building controls also provide ideal environments for patients, staff, and visitors without excess energy use. Building Automated Systems (BAS) work to maintain temperatures and lighting at optimal levels, providing constant comfort and safety and keeping energy costs down.

Energy Audits help you determine your current energy usage – where you use it and how much. Then a hospital facility can be assessed to find way to adjust or upgrade building systems – to increase energy efficiency and improve indoor conditions throughout.
