About Coulter Engineers
Coulter Engineers was established in 1970 with its key employees bringing over 135 years of combined design and construction experience to the organization. We are proficient in and maintain the latest three-dimensional modeling capabilities with AutoDesk Navisworks, Prolong Construction Management, and Accubid Estimating software. We are members of DBIA (Design Build Institute of America), NSPE (National Society of Professional Engineers), SAVE (Society for Advancement of Value Engineering), IEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers), IES (Illuminating Engineering Society), and NCEES (National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying).
Having worked alongside an electrical contracting firm for 40+ years, Coulter offers a strong construction background to supplement its engineering skills. We now have an associate mechanical consultant in HVAC and plumbing, offering VE in those fields. This allows us to provide a complete VE analysis of the mechanical and electrical systems (MEP) in one package. For a project to be completed with the least number of problems, it requires the proficiency of all parties working together in harmony and unity to achieve the highest quality with the least time and cost. Coulter Engineers provides the continuity that achieves this undertaking by working closely with the developer, architect and engineers, construction manager, and sub-contractors. We bring to the assemblage, the know-how, and experience that connects all parties together as one. Our design knowledge added to our construction understanding enables us to keep within a budget without sacrificing any of the scope and standards.
The MEP portion of a project normally entails approximately 35% of the total cost. In our experience, we have seen savings to the client upwards of 30% of the total MEP package.
