Specialized Engineering Solutions is a firm of multi-disciplined specialty engineers and commissioning providers

Working nationwide to engineer innovative, cost-effective, and efficient building system designs that perform to deliver safe, comfortable, and reliable environments. 

Specialized Healthcare Design

As healthcare systems, hospitals, and clinics look to right-size building systems (MEP) investment and position delivery of care to best serve the need. It is critical to consider having planning partners who specialize in healthcare engineering to simplify the complexity regarding initial and long-term considerations involving code, cost, flexibility, energy, and maintenance.

Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs)

Healthcare Engineering Specialists can be a valuable resource when considering design and equipment choices to combat HAIs. As a healthcare specialty firm, we continually are advancing and guiding best practices to design safer places to heal, learn, and work.

Do you need Commissioning on your project?

Across the country, updated energy codes and new guidelines are establishing requirements for projects to be commissioned.  We have developed a reference tool to help owners, representatives, and developers understand the scope needed and then how to prepare and budget. 

We have worked with CHI Health and now CommonSpirit Health for over 12 years.

“The engineers at SES consistently provide a high level of mechanical, electrical and technology design services on all projects regardless of size. They are responsive, collaborative team members with a thorough approach and innovative solutions. SES is a trusted partner when assessing, planning and engineering the future of healthcare facilities.”
