Engineering is at the heart of our services. For three decades, C3 has built an unparalleled reputation for our skill in design and engineering of mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP), fire protection (FP), data communications, and security systems for a wide range of building types—biomedical, commercial office and retail, manufacturing, and higher education.
C3 was chosen to engineer the MEP/FP/IT/AV/Security infrastructure for multiple 500,000- to one-million-square-foot projects in Boston, including the State Street Financial Center Tower and the company’s state-of-the-art disaster recovery center in the Seaport district.
Buildings have to work, but they have to work within the context of the owner’s needs and goals. As engineers, we listen carefully to our clients. We take on the owner’s mindset, planning capital expenditures and assessing building conditions as if the financial implications were our own. We engineer strategically—never “over engineering,” always mindful of the owner’s goals and where each building is in the Real Estate Life Cycle.
We are obsessively thorough down to the last detail. Our senior engineers work day-to-day on projects instead of assigning all tasks to junior staff. We never take the standard, easy approach—we’re there, on the site, on ladders, getting our hands dirty. We doggedly pursue the owner’s interest at every stage.
