Green Design:

Orbital Engineering has always been on the cutting edge of energy efficient and “green” design. Orbital Engineering was one of the first engineering firms in the area to design using geothermal heat pump systems. Geothermal heat pumps are one of the most energy efficient systems we can design around to heat and cool the client’s building or home. We work hand in hand with owners and architects to provide a sustainable building using best practices. We specify energy efficient lighting to further minimize the carbon footprint of the building. Through the use of new technology such as occupancy sensors and LED lighting systems we reduce energy consumption and cooling loads. We also specify low/no water consumption plumbing fixtures, grey water systems, and rain water storage. We strive to help the client understand that not only will they save money by cutting energy costs, but that they are helping preserve our most precious resource, the planet.
