Architectural Consulting Engineers (ACE) provides consulting engineering services to architectural firms and building owners for new construction and renovation designs – principally in the areas of mechanical and related systems. From simple studies to full scale renovations and new construction, ACE makes a committed effort to provide quality engineered systems, while still taking into account the architectural needs and complexities of the particular project.
By taking the attitude that every project is unique and deserves a unique design solution, and by working closely with building owners, tenants, end-users, and the architects involved, ACE strives to provide solutions to the design process that are well engineered and fit within the Client’s budget and schedule.Architectural Consulting Engineers has worked extensively with historic and older structures to provide quality designed systems or to formulate system design approaches for future facility plans. Great attention is always given to architectural detail in these projects to ensure that the finished systems not only work as desired, but are as unobtrusive as possible. Architectural Consulting Engineers focuses on integrating many aspects of “green”, sustainable, energy efficient designs into most of our projects. Whether it is designing a ground source heat pump system for a new or existing building, participation on a LEED project team, or creatively adapting a historic structure with modern energy efficient systems, ACE works with all team partners to create an overall design that compliments the architectural design features and still provides a high level of environmental control and efficiency. Our main operating region is the mid-west United States and we hold professional licenses in Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Ohio. We also have worked extensively outside this region including projects in Washington DC, Vermont, Missouri, Louisiana, and Texas.
