Over time, a building’s HVAC system will stray from design intent through manual overrides or degradation of equipment. Issues can also arise if the building has gone through changes to the structure, zoning, design or HVAC system. All too often, repairs and modifications are done without consideration of the building and system as a whole, resulting in deep-seeded comfort and efficiency issues. The Randall Lamb Commissioning Group specializes in identifying and resolving these types of HVAC issues.
Our Team will investigate the issue, discover the cause and establish a path to resolution. If the issues are complicated in nature and lead to capital improvements, Randall Lamb will establish a commissioning process whereby all parties involved will be guided through a thorough quality control commissioning and verification process that results in a comfortable, efficient facility.
Randall Lamb recently finished the complete renovation of the award-winning $53 million student housing complex, Zura Hall on the San Diego State University campus. The 112,844 square foot complex consists of 310 student rooms, as well as lounges and study rooms, restrooms, offices, storage, and faculty living. Designed for LEED Silver, the project features low-flow toilets and shower heads, occupancy sensors, LED lighting, the monitoring of energy and water use, and a green roof among other features.

In our San Francisco office, Pranathi Bhattacharji, has been published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for her Masters research article titled “Reduced Order WECC Modeling For Frequency Response and Energy Storage Integration”. The published paper was presented at the annual meeting in Utah this past July.
In our San Diego office, mechanical engineer Alex Scambos and electrical engineer Thomas Weaver recently earned their Professional Engineering Licenses. Both are now registered Engineers in the state of California.
In our San Diego office, we congratulate several team members on their recent promotions. Mechanical Engineer Zack Blois has been promoted to Project Manager, Peter Farjad has been promoted to Electrical Senior Associate, and Rick Gligora has been promoted to Senior Plumbing Designer.
Since our last newsletter, Randall Lamb welcomes seven new additional team members to our team. Our San Francisco office welcomes Mechanical Designers Nicole Olaes, David Jue, and Eva Ma, Electrical Designer Luke Vartuli, as well as Administrative Assistant Heather Brookes. Our San Diego office welcomes Electrical Designer Robert Morris and Project Assistant Clare Nguyen.
The $43.9 million dollar project scope included construction of a 2-story Fitness Center, a 1-story, 16,673 sq ft Liberty Center, and a 12,651 sq ft outdoor Olympic size pool at Naval Base Coronado.
Randall Lamb mechanical engineers Calina Ferraro and Ransom Hamrick will present at the upcoming ASHRAE San Diego Chapter Meeting on May 10th. They will be discussing the topic “Smart Engineering Is Not Just For “Green Buildings” which will focus on mechanical design elements and systems that achieve the goals of good engineering practice in a diverse range of projects.
