What is the engineering consulting

​Engineering consulting is an analysis of an already existing or upcoming for launch climate system by experienced and professional engineers. It includes their advice, and if necessary, concrete proposals of troubleshooting.

The types of engineering consulting

Finished engineering solution inspection

In the future, this check allows the client not to spend a large amount of money on the implementation of the facility and at the same time to have an understanding that the engineering solution is correct. The solution that was proposed to him get audited. 

After this stage, the client can order the design from Alter Air team.​

Finished project inspection

The design of the project cannot deviate from the finished engineering solution on paper. Deviations can only be if the architect or customer has changed something during the process. All changes must initially be agreed in the project on paper, and then transferred to the site. 

The task of Alter Air company, as an audit, when consulting the finished object, is to check the installation work, and their compliance with the project on paper. Thereafter, conclusions can be made whether the system for the project was made correctly or there are inconsistencies. 

Independent engineering solution preparing

Most often, the customer order this service from a verified company. The process takes place at two stages, which were mentioned before:  

  • when there is documentation;
  • when there is a finished project. 

You can change anything If we’re talking about a ready-made engineering solution. 

At the stage of the mounted object, it is much more difficult to change anything, since not every client is ready to replace the equipment after the work done. In this case, air ducts and heating were installed already, and these processes should be clearly bound to the design. For better valuation of the best possibilities to change anything in systems, a specialist comes to the construction site and inspects the site for an independent engineering solution. 

So, it is IMPORTANT that the design project and all the engineering solutions are matched.

Support of projects in other cities

It is important to note that Alter Air provides service of project support in any other city of Ukraine. We can check ready-made engineering solution in our office online, as well as analyze systems and calculate errors. That’s why, firstly, there is an analysis of the papers, then there is an object visit in another city. Our specialists can arrive to provide consulting services or develop a full-fledged independent project.  Moreover, if necessary, the specialist can stay at the facility in another city to run the systems. 

We already cooperate with the regions of western Ukraine: Ivano-Frankivsk, Lviv, Chernivtsi, Ternopil, Rivne region and Uzhgorod city.

Support of projects in other countries

Alter Air provides consulting projects not only in all cities of Ukraine. There is also a project support service for such countries: 

  • Tajikistan; 
  • Uzbekistan; 
  • Kazakhstan; 
  • Azerbaijan etc.

Consulting stages

Alter Air engineering
consulting stages
  • Consultation
  • Commercial offer
  • Design
  • System Installation
  • Service
01
Consultation

Consultation

During the consultation, the client explains his concerns. There ca be numerous reasons: some have a noisy system, some have insufficient fresh air, something leaks in the system and so on. The specialist carefully studies the issue orally, discussing with the client, and then looks at the project on paper, according to a certain problem. If we’re talking about a finished object, a specialist goes to it for assessment and verdict. During the consultation, our team identifies issues, after which specialists can begin to calculate time and financial costs. It is important to note that after the initial consultation, the hours of the expert's work can be changed.

02
Commercial offer

Commercial offer

At this stage, experts can more accurately assess the time required for the work. Then our team gives the estimated value of the work for the certain project.

03
Design

Design

At this stage, our team explore the object in detail. The client can decide for himself whether he wants to continue working on errors with our company after the conclusion of our specialist about mistakes and inaccuracies. If so, we proceed to re-design and avoid errors that were made by another company. We can also offer the client our vision in the form of a description, with which he can go back to the original company.

04
System Installation

System Installation

There are two formats of installation in consulting:
- in the system, that was already installed (in that case, our company makes engineering consulting of installation systems, which was already made by other contractors);
- at the design stage (we customize the project and after make installation works).

05
Service

Service

Any modified system that had consulting must be authorized by the company that takes over the engineering solution. In the future, the same company have to manage the service work, so later there will be no problems.

Special conditions of cooperation

We are happy to jointly conduct projects with organizations and self-employed specialists, recommend you to our clients and help with the outsourced engineering part. Additionally, we invite you to attend seminars of the "Engineering in Design" series, where we show by examples how to correctly implement engineering systems in the interiors of end customers.

What do clients
say about us?

We chose Alter Air to bring our cool engineering project to build our own home. Now the following systems are installed in the house: heating with a heat pump, underfloor heating, supply and exhaust ventilation with heat recovery, which allows you to keep moisture and easily breathe fresh clean air. The house maintains an excellent temperature of + 22 ° C - no stuffiness and dust. Everything is magical!

Evgeniy
House owner

 I looked at several companies on the Internet and settled on the Alter Air company. After talking with their specialists, I realized that people are very well versed in their business. They sensibly explained how to implement home heating and ventilation correctly and with minimal cost. During my stay in a new house, I have already experienced the operation of these systems, and especially the ease of control. The temperature in the house is comfortable and kept at a given level. The ventilation works inaudibly, but noticeably - with the windows closed in the morning it breathes freely and easily, there is no dust. I am very pleased with the work of Alter Air and I will recommend you as a good performer who does quality work!

FAQ

When do I need to appeal for engineering consulting?

When you have your first doubt. In our opinion, if a client think about consulting his project, then something has already went wrong. 

How to avoid engineering consulting

The client, who comes to the consulting, already choose the way to “pay more”. To avoid consulting, before starting the project, it is better for the client to contact several companies for advice. It is important to pay attention to the experience and quality of previous work when selecting a company, not only to the fact that the cost of services is lower than the rest. Most often, in the future, the budget option will make the client pay twice as much. 

If the initial consultation with the client was detailed and quality, less likely, that mistakes will be made in the future. If not – the client will have to hire another specialist, for an additional fee, and stop the construction process. Worst-case scenario, the customer gets ready-made systems that don’t work properly and asks himself: “why do I need ventilation if it makes so much noise?” or “why do I need a heat pump if it works like a boiler?” etc.




How long does engineering consulting work last?

Specialists can answer on this question after checking the project, engineering solution and so on. All individually. The hours for making the works will depend on the size of the facility and the systems that are involved.

What is the cost of engineering consulting in Ukraine?

​It is impossible to tell what the price will be without considering the spent hours, the size of the facility and the involved systems. Thus, the cost can be determined after consultation.
