Industrial Market Sector

RTM has provided MEP/FP engineering for all types and sizes of industrial projects, including printing plants, food processing facilities, distribution centers, and manufacturing facilities. We design the systems not only for the core and shell of facilities, but also for the internal systems, such as high-speed conveyors and cranes. Additionally, we perform short circuit, coordination, and arc flash studies and electrical safety training to provide a safe and healthy work environment.

Although the complexity of an industrial facility varies depending on its intended use, RTM treats each industrial project as “mission critical.” We understand that any loss in production due to design or construction delays will incur costly consequences. RTM delivers responsive consultation and provides redundancy in our designs to create an efficient and reliable process for our clients.

Restaurant Market Sector

Whether it is a chain restaurant with preset standards, a high-end restaurant in a high rise, or a barbecue restaurant with smokers, RTM’s thorough portfolio allows us to provide the right MEP/FP design for any type of restaurant space. Additionally, our knowledge of nationwide codes and standards allows us to accommodate specific state-to-state requirements that affect the MEP/FP systems.

As restaurant design often boils down to the performance of the kitchen, our engineers are experts in designing mechanical systems that effectively control odor and balance pressure, while also providing the proper electrical coordination and tie-ins for the mechanical and kitchen equipment. We actively coordinate with kitchen consultants to deliver efficient kitchens and comfortable environments for the restaurant patrons.

Residential Market Sector

When it comes to designing residential buildings, we have a wide breadth of experience. We’ve worked in urban and rural areas, high-rises and mid-rises, and specialty housing, such as green housing and low-income housing. RTM’s portfolio accounts for building multifamily residences from the ground up to residential rehab. We work with contractors to create a space that satisfies codes while delighting residents.

We also understand the unique challenges of designing for LEED and Energy Star certifications. Because their criteria differ from project to project, it is important for a firm to possess a comprehensive knowledge of the sustainability requirements to design the right systems and deliver a successful project.

Senior Living Market Sector

The MEP/FP systems play an integral role in optimizing the comfort, privacy, and safety of residents in senior living communities. Having provided MEP/FP engineering for numerous senior living facilities, RTM possesses the knowledge of modern living standards and regulatory requirements to design efficient and sustainable systems for these complex developments.

Whether the facility incorporates memory care, assisted living, skilled nursing, or single occupancy spaces, our engineers understand the importance of designing systems that accommodate the needs of the various programs and functions specific to each environment. RTM has obtained the expertise required to deliver engineering solutions that address life safety, specialized care services, controllability, and odor and ventilation.

Education Market Sector

RTM understands that universities value flexible spaces to accommodate a variety of needs. We possess the expertise to successfully design MEP/FP systems to meet and exceed the various program spaces found in collegiate buildings. We also are well-versed in the requirements for building K-12 facilities in the private and public sectors.

What K-12 and higher education projects have in common is a need to accomplish the work in a short time frame- construction typically has to be completed over the summer so as not to interrupt the learning process. They also require expertise in many different types of buildings- residence halls, dining rooms, classrooms, theaters, etc. Science labs in particular require a specialized knowledge of hoods, glass sanitary piping, and explosion proof devices. RTM’s diverse portfolio allows us to effectively engineer systems for any type of educational space.

RTM can provide high-level construction management services and expert MEP consultants who will do research, keep up with industry trends, and know the right questions to ask. We also provide consistent staffing to see projects from initial concept through completion, regardless of duration.

Government Market Sector

Government-funded projects possess a unique set of challenges, ranging from interrupted or prolonged project schedules to complex standards and processes. With RTM, the same engineers will be involved from day one to the end, creating a cohesive and streamlined team. We can handle any changes that come up, and are prepared to manage deadlines accordingly.

When working with government agencies, RTM takes the time to learn and understand their distinctive standards and processes. We become their trusted advisors by providing cost-effective and appropriate designs to fulfill each project’s specific needs.

Hospitality Market Sector

Hotels consist of a variety of different spaces that necessitate varying mechanical, electrical, and plumbing requirements, while also maintaining the look and feel of the particular brand.
