About Dodson Engineering, Inc.

Specializing in the mechanical engineering field since 1954, the consulting firm of Dodson Engineering, Inc. has earned a reputation for excellence in the development of plumbing, heating, ventilating, air conditioning, and fire protection systems in Pittsburgh, PA for all types of institutional, industrial, and commercial engineering applications in Allegheny County, PA and beyond.

Licensed to practice mechnical engineering in Pennsylvania and surrounding states, Dodson Engineering, Inc. provides mechanical engineering services to a diverse clientele, including architects, government agencies, school districts and universities, hospitals, and the corporate community. Annually, Dodson Engineering averages over 100 projects, with an associated mechanical construction cost in excess of $30,000,000.

Most of the commissions awarded to Dodson Engineering require full-service mechanical engineering. Full-service mechanical engineering services include the preparation of drawings and specifications for bidding purposes, the related construction phase services, and building commissioning. A full range of automated services are utilized, including CADD (computer-aided drafting and design) and computer modeling.

Special consulting services are also provided when requested. These services include such items as indoor air quality surveys, energy audits, the development of preventative maintenance programs, and alternative fuel or system studies.

Usually, these services are rendered to clients within the traditional plan/specifications/bidding procedure. This traditional approach, however, has undergone modifications. Construction management, fast tracking, design-build, and partnered projects are other methods now utilized to respond to the challenge of bringing a building on-line as cost-effectively as possible. Dodson Engineering has successfully worked within all of these concepts and can offer significant experience and expertise in any of these non-traditional approaches to a design/construction project.

The staff of Dodson Engineering includes a full complement of technical personnel with a high percentage of registered engineers, along with the necessary administrative and clerical support personnel. Every member of the staff at Dodson Engineering is committed to providing all clients with the highest level of mechanical engineering services for virtually every building type within whichever project delivery system is most appropriate. Principal involvement, quality control, and good client communications are important components of Dodson Engineering's client services philosophy.

Confidence in doing a job well comes from experience and a tradition of fine performance. Under the leadership of founder James R. Dodson, Jr. (1915-1985), and his successors, the firm has become known in the construction community for strong management, exceptional mechanical design, and outstanding client service.
