Clark Trombley Randers provides mechanical and electrical design services to a variety of market sectors in support of both architects and owner-direct relationships. Our variety of experiences has allowed us to leverage our staff’s capabilities. Maintaining diversity in our project workload helps our staff stay active and interested and our backlog fairly constant.
One of our most active sectors. Clark Trombley Randers offers MEP design services to support retail projects at every stage of development. From site utility design to tenant improvement, we understand the process and the sense of urgency of these developments. Our experience ranges from shopping centers to bank branches to "big box" retailers to restaurants.

From shell development to whiteboxes to tenant improvement projects, their retail team has provided quick and efficient MEP designs in this fast-paced environment. Whether it's an unplanned field visit or a call to a utility company, CTR steps up and contributes to the overall effort.
Perhaps our strongest area. Clark Trombley Randers is experienced in MEP design for K-12 school projects from renovations to new buildings. We take special interest in the schematic design phase to ensure that adequate mechanical and electrical spaces have been allowed. We understand the collaborative nature of K-12 projects with the many stakeholders from the architect to the maintenance personnel to the students.
ClassroomsHVAC and lighting design that are both energy efficient and quiet.
Gyms and PoolsVentilation and humidity control designs that meet the needs of these special spaces.
Assembly SpacesLighting control systems and HVAC that address the flexibility necessary in auditoriums and cafeterias.
Support SpacesMEP for kitchen coordination, mechanical rooms, janitor spaces, loading docks, etc. are matched to the resources of the building.

Steve Lathrop | Okemos Public Schools Operations Director
It's apparent from the work CTR has done for our district that they understand not only the design process, but the implementation of MEP projects. From RFP support to construction administration, CTR has provided leadership on our building projects. They're a resource I repeatedly use and trust.
Lobby renovations, departmental moves, equipment replacements, new technology installations, data centers...these all fill the plates of most health care facility engineering departments. The workload ranges from the technical to the political. Health care facilities continually compete for patients and medical personnel, and the condition of your building and the quality of your systems play a role.
CTR can help! Whether it involves HVAC, plumbing, lighting, power, or special systems, CTR can provide the technical expertise and construction documents needed for successful project implementation.
And you'll enjoy working with us!

Senior staff at CTR regularly assert themselves during our programming and conceptual design process, insuring MEP space requirements are addressed early. We appreciate their willingness to participate and contribute.
Church projects, because they're all different, are fun for us to participate in. They usually have some design flair not found on most other projects. This often creates challenges for lighting and HVAC — ones we're eager to tackle!
Religious BuildingsClark Trombley Randers is familiar with the unique nature of church projects. We understand the unenviable task that church building committees have—to find the balance between their wants and their budgets. We can provide alternative approaches to MEP systems to find the right solutions.

Church projects happen at infrequent intervals and are important to the congregation as well as the building committee. CTR was great in the explanation of various selections that met our needs and our budget. There was no one-size-fits-all design. They played an active role in the early conceptual design process.
Clark Trombley Randers provides MEP services to support the ongoing renovation and upgrade projects typical of most colleges and universities. To campuses with a large number of buildings and oft-changing requirements, CTR can be a valuable resource to physical plant staff. We are familiar with the process of designing modern systems within sometimes less-than-modern buildings.
Data CentersWith the advent of departmental data centers and server rooms, CTR has found a niche in applying process cooling and power quality designs throughout a campus. Familiar with the evolution from a PC in a closet to a rack-based system of high capacity servers, we can address specific needs and produce an appropriate design.
Office RenovationsThe changing needs of academic and administrative departments result in large and small renovations in existing buildings. Power and HVAC modifications are usually needed to support these relocations. CTR can evaluate existing building systems and issue construction documents for physical plant or outside contractor construction.
Equipment ReplacementsOlder campuses with central building equipment need updating and/or replacement as useful life runs out. CTR can evaluate equipment and systems for suitability and reliability in current uses. Often, energy efficiency will drive equipment replacement, and CTR can assist with alternatives analysis.

With over 500 buildings on campus, our in-house staff relies on our consultants to be self-directing on project assignments. CTR is able to independently move projects forward from design through construction without requiring detailed directions, while keeping our staff informed. CTR always interacts in a professional manner with faculty and administrative staff, as well as with Physical Plant staff.
An important part of our retail work is working for franchisees to modify a prototype design to fit a site-specific location. We work with the franchise architects to specify MEP systems consistent with the intent of the prototype but fits within the space allotted.
Our franchise work includes stores for:
CTR has been part of the design team for several mixed use/multi-family residential projects. We can offer alternative approaches for HVAC and collaborate during the schematic design phase to insure there is sufficient space programmed for mechanical and electrical services. We are familiar with the requirements of high-rise design and how that may affect the architectural layouts. On spaces with lower floor commercial, we can prepare the building infrastructure to support future tenants.
