Consulting Engineers:

Murray Engineering and Design, Inc. has been providing quality, cost effective engineering services to the Architectural community for many years. Our unique combination of young talent and mature professionals insures an effective team approach to design, creative solutions and project management. Our Thousand Oaks location allows us to be responsive to our clients needs throughout Ventura and Los Angeles counties.

Our technical staff consists of skilled professionals with decades of experience in Mechanical, Plumbing and Electrical Engineering. Murray Engineering & Design, Inc. has designed over 12 million square feet of a variety of building types including educational institutions, medical offices, research laboratories and housing facilities. By applying innovative technologies, we provide our clients with building designs that are able to meet the ever-changing demands of today's building systems while maintaining energy efficiency or reliability.

Murray Engineering & Design, Inc. strives to provide clients with efficient and cost effective professional design and engineering services by following strict cost control procedures and adhering to performance schedules. We believe in total quality management as the foundation for a well-run organization.

Our QC philosophy requires that our Principal in Charge review every project for completeness and accuracy of plans, calculations and specifications. Our Project Mangers are mature professionals educated in multi disciplinary fields, including Mechanical, Plumbing and Electrical Engineering. Our very interactive in-house design teams readily and effectively address system coordination issues, thus saving our clients both time and money.

During construction, our experts are available to help address the questions and issues that may arise. We typically work hand-in-hand with the general contractor, subcontractors and facility personnel to ensure that all players understand not only the design requirements but also the underlying reasons for these requirements, Understanding ‘why' is as important as understanding ‘how' when working with today's technologies.

Quality Control:

Murray Engineering & Design, Inc. takes a proactive approach to QC. One example is to create drawings that incorporate all aspects of the design. These drawings indicate the relationship of ductwork piping, electrical conduit and architectural elements on a single drawing. This approach enables us to avoid costly change orders that may occur during construction.

The "fresh eyes" concept is another example of total QC. Not only are documents reviewed by the department in which they were created, we also have our partners review the documents for each of the other disciplines this approach ensures that all departments are cognizant of work being provided by others that may affect their design.

Computer Graphic Capabilities:

Murray Engineering & Design, Inc is fully equipped with a state of the art computer aided system. High-speed computers at every employee's workstation, provides our clients with integrated architectural and engineering documents. Equipped with the latest versions of Auto-Cad software, we are capable of producing drawings quickly. Our computer hardware systems include both color and monochrome plotters for large drawings. We utilize several types of printers.

Energy Conservation Designs:

Murray Engineering & Design, Inc strongly supports the progress being made toward the reduction of energy consumption. Natural day lighting and passive heating and cooling concepts are evaluated to determine if they are appropriate for each project.
Murray Engineering & Design, Inc has a unique ability to approach natural day lighting and solar design from a "human life" point of view. The result of this balance between form and function is a comprehensive design solution that is fully integrated into the building's systems.
An energy management system capable of monitoring and controlling the lighting and mechanical systems can be provided. Natural ventilation and cooling concepts can also be introduced to supplement the use of high efficiency equipment. Opportunities to take advantage of concrete mass for thermal storage will be explored, as well as determining the most appropriate use of insulation. Ease of operation and maintenance are considered as well. A final comprehensive design solution will be developed to ensure an effective reduction of energy consumption.
