Dan Parent, P.E. and Cold Craft, Inc. have very similar philosophies in regards to the design, planning and installation of HVAC R equipment; keeping many factors in mind to create a building environment that is comfortable, practical and is as energy efficient as the customer desires. Cold Craft, a heating, ventilation air conditioning and refrigeration firm in the San Francisco bay area, sought an engineer to add to the team to hit some specific targets such as improving the customer experience by bridging the engineering and fulfillment experience to achieve even more predictable project’s timelines, increased budgetary control and clarity on the project.
While most engineers lack the field experience, and field professionals tend to lack the engineering component, it is unusual to find an individual, such as Dan with experience in both.
Cold Craft sought individuals that share their firm belief that control during the design process nearly eliminates potential cost over-runs that can sometimes develop as a project moves from conception to design. This shared vision is what makes Dan Parent such an asset. He will surely help Cold Craft reach the lofty goals it has set for itself.
Dan has worked with firms such as H-Square Mechanical, Therma, Inc., Polyaire Mechanical, etc. Coupled with his education from California Polytechnic University, it makes him a great fit for Cold Craft.
Customers opting for the design-build concept benefit from knowing that the complete responsibility for the entire system rests solely with one company. Susan Nichol, CEO of Cold Craft, Inc. added, “Dan joining our firm can only be good for our clients, they will get the whole package with just one responsible party. Dan’s project management, engineering and field fulfillment knowledge means that he has the knowledge of several positions. This means one party – no finger pointing at other parties like you see with the splintered engineering and mechanical contractor jobs.” In the past, Cold Craft, Inc. hired outside talent for the engineering and that worked well, but the firm is looking for a more seamless process for the clients.
Cold Craft specializes in green build construction, for example their focus on geothermal and grocery store construction and renovation. So whether the application is design or design build, Cold Craft is positioned to assist the client with an experienced Engineering and Design Department.
With Dan Parent on board, Cold Craft can provide even better all in one services for prompt, precise, and well defined proposals for negotiated projects in the initial stages of planning and development. The firm realizes the significance and importance of being able to provide true scopes and dependable pricing for these projects and Dan’s experience will help us meet those customer care goals.
