What We Do
Our Philosophy

Staengl Engineering is a Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing Engineering Design & Energy Consulting firm specializing in energy-efficient MEP systems for high-performance and sustainable buildings. Our focus is on projects targeting very low, net-zero and net-positive energy use. We design systems for buildings certified for LEED (Platinum, Gold and Silver), Net Zero Energy, PassivHaus, and Living Building Challenge, and we’ve been recognized for our award-winning projects by the US Green Building Council and the Virginia Sustainable Building Network, among others.

We strive to design elegant, simple systems – minimizing the use of resources and energy – to create comfortable, healthy, vibrant spaces where people live and work. Each of our designs represents an in-depth evaluation of our client’s goals, the building design and the environmental conditions, producing systems that are tailored for each project. The past 10 years have proved that designing and constructing net-zero and low-energy buildings is readily achievable and economical. The challenge now, as we see it, is to use integrated design to create low-energy buildings that embody elegance, inspire visitors and occupants, and maximize economy.
