In December, 1988, after challenging careers as project engineers and engineering managers, Al Andrews, Chuck Hammock and Ed Powell began the mechanical/electrical consulting engineering firm of Andrews, Hammock, & Powell, Inc. Subsequently, Wesley Haynes and Naeem Osmani joined the firm as partners. All of the principals are engineers first and managers second. They are active in the design of every project designed by AH&P. This means the client receives senior participation in each and every project regardless of size or complexity.
In 2001, AH&P recognized the need to upgrade our services during the construction phase. We have developed a full time construction administration department. Jim Hughes, P.E., heads this department. He and his staff visit our projects as needed or required each month to insure the construction materials and workmanship comply with the Contract Documents. Jim also expedites submittal reviews; answers RFI’s; and expedites change order review and approval to keep the construction progressing.
In 2003, AH&P recognized the need to provide Commissioning, Equipment Start-up, and TAB services. This need grew out of the fact that many times, the contractor did not leave the project with the equipment, systems, and controls working as specified. To accomplish this work, Mark Andrews was employed. Mark is a former contractor and is currently a certified NEBB commissioning and TAB agent. We have the knowledge, instruments and tools required to commission the mechanical and electrical equipment to insure the systems meet the Owner’s Project Requirements (OPRs) and are installed and operating as specified. Mark has provided this service for clients as far west as Missouri, as far north as Illinois and as far east as Delaware.
In addition to traditional mechanical/electrical
engineering services, the firm has specialty areas of practice including
"Green" buildings and moisture/condensation control in industrial plants.
The former includes many LEED Professionals, photovoltaics and a group
devoted to Geothermal Heat Pump Engineering in the domestic and
