I have a ministry project that I'd like Above Group's help with, who do I contact?
What software tools does Above Group use?
Above Group uses many different software platforms in the services we provide. We use Autodesk Building Design Suite (AutoCAD and Revit) and PTC Creo Parametric for modeling and drawing production in addition to several other specialized software packages for engineering analysis. Some of the other specialized software packages we use are AFT Arrow and Fathom, Caesar, Trane Trace, eQuest, SKM Power Analysis Power Pack, and Visual, just to name a few.
What can Above Group do for me?
Our team at Above Group, Inc. focuses primarily on services involving building systems, process systems, research and development, along with drafting, design, and modeling.
Building systems, such as mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems for buildings, can range from a simple tenant infill (rededication of an existing space to new construction) for a strip mall office space, all the way up to a class 10K cleanroom space for processing space aircraft. Basically, whatever your building system needs may be, we can accommodate. Our team of science and engineering professionals has extensive experience working on all spectrums of the complexity scale for building systems, from one extreme to the other and everywhere in between. We customize our approach to each and every client and project by developing and encouraging frequent communication. Clear, solid communication is essential in order for us to fully understand the specific needs of your project, consider all requirements, and be able to provide the best solution.
Process systems, such as ground support equipment, piping, and compressed air systems, involve the carrying out of an important process that usually affects other systems. That is why it is imperative that process systems are designed and engineered specifically to implement their unique purpose effectively and without incident. Powering equipment and connecting piping are only the beginning of making a process system work. Other aspects, like control and integration, are also very important. Carrying out just about any process requires specific design and engineering in order to implement properly, so bring us your process and we will help you make it work! We also specialize in reviewing and improving your existing process in order to maximize efficiency and operability.
Research and development plays a crucial part in implementing any process or system. With our research and development services, we can leverage our technical expertise for almost any challenge presented to us. We welcome your most challenging, tedious and seemingly-impossible projects! You can use us an extension to the staff you already have, or you can let us handle every aspect of the project. Our team is flexible in order to meet your specific needs.
Behind every process, building, or product are drawings and models. Our drafting, design and modeling specialists utilize the techniques and principles you need in order to create or represent 3-dimensional buildings and objects. Our team is highly skilled at interpreting specifications and estimating materials for your specific projects. The drafting and design technology professionals here at Above Group use their vast technical skills to create drawings, plans, and high-tech models that are used in constructing a building or manufacturing a product. Utilizing computer aided design (CAD) software, we efficiently and accurately produce both 2D and 3D drawings and models. Whether it is for a design we are producing or drafting yours, we utilize the latest technologies to get it done. Our drafting experts do not just stop at plans for buildings, they are also experienced in creating plans for objects, mechanisms, and machines.
So, whether it's designing and implementing a common building system to meet current codes, or engineering a state-of-the-art clean room to ensure a precise environment, we have you covered. Our goal is that every interaction with us is above the standard, and above your expectations, so contact us today to discuss how we can partner with you on your next project!
I am a student, how can I get a few questions answered about becoming an engineer?
Local chapters of engineering societies and organizations are a great resource for aspiring engineers. Organizations such as the National Socity of Professional Engineers (NSPE), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), American Society of Heating Refrigeration and Air Conditioning (ASHRAE), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) are just a few of the organizations that are out there.
What sets Above Group apart from other firms?
We strive to do everything above the standard and above expectations through technical excellence while providing a flexible approach to meet individual client needs. We strive to deliver the simplest, most cost effective solutions possible that still exceed the requirements of each individual project. We have demonstrated experience challenging established norms in engineering and design that have produced substantial cost savings for our clients while still meeting the project requirements.
