Dunlap & Partners Engineers

While we were looking at creative ways to market our firm we kept coming back to the phrase, "What If", we do this or "What If", we do that. That is when we decided to utilize the idiom, "What If" in our marketing campaign and explore the possibilities of, "What If" within our firm and with our clients. With a strong, progressive and creative leadership team in place, this allowed us to forge ahead and discover just that..."What If”…

We began our campaign of "What If" with postcards sent to our partners, clients and industry peers, periodically throughout the first year highlighting important information regarding "Green Design." In 2009 we began to incorporate seminars with expert speakers on subjects related to "Green Design" such as Rainwater Harvesting, Solar Energy and Green Roofs. These seminars, which are provided free of charge and include lunch, target our clients, teammates and anyone else interested in our Green Design topics. Our next step in providing information to our clients was to become a provider through AIA (American Institute of Architects) in order to provide CEU's (Continuing Education Units) to the attendees of the seminars. Our goal for later this year is to become a provider for USGBC (United States Green Building Council) so we may offer not only CEU's through AIA but also learning units through USGBC.

Although, there has not been an actual measurement of success, per se, we do believe that we are providing a service and invaluable information related to our clients and others in our industry on LEED topics and High Performance Building Design. For Dunlap & Partners it is a “win-win” effort while we continue to explore the possibilities of “What if”….

Dunlap and Partners Engineers is a Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Fire Protection engineering design firm. We also provide building commissioning services and have on staff twelve (12) LEED Accredited Professionals, Certified High Performance Building Design Professionals, Certified Healthcare Facility Design Professionals, Certified Commissioned Process Management Professionals, Energy Auditing and Energy Modeling Professionals.
