Firm Overview

Engineous Group, Inc.

Engineous Group, Inc. Headquarters

The merger between AMPE, Inc. and Davar Associates, Inc. to form EGI further strengthened our capabilities in the industry.  The combination of the two firms experience and expertise in MEP-FP engineering has created a new MEP firm that provides principle level of attention to every project and oversight of the engineering staff providing the design.

Engineous Group Inc. (EGI), specializes in Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP) design. Our years of expert engineering experience has attracted leading architectural and development firms to utilize our MEP services. Our leadership experience includes both consulting engineering and previous design-build contracting, therefore we provide cost-effective yet well engineered construction documents that generate little to no change orders.

Design Philosophy

Each project is carefully designed to specific client’s needs, program, technical requirements and budget. Every assignment presents the opportunity to develop a uniquely tailored design solution. Our primary design objective is to  develop a well engineered yet cost effective MEP solution for every single project .

Particular emphasis is placed on defining not only project scope and intent, but also budget and schedule at the inception of the design process. Attention to all levels of detail and close communication continue through the duration of the project to insure the best possible construction documents for our clients needs and budget. The client is given the highest degree of attention to make sure the expectations are understood and delivered..
