Building Dynamics, LLC (Building Dynamics) is an independent engineering and industrial hygiene consulting firm specializing in HVAC systems, Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ), and Energy Analysis. Building Dynamics was founded in 1996 by Ed Light, Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH), and James Bailey, Professional Engineer (PE), to provide clients with a multi-disciplinary perspective and cost-effective solutions to building issues and occupant concerns. Our technical expertise is rooted in hands-on experience with building operations and communication with stakeholders in contentious situations. We enjoy the challenges of problem-solving and welcome involvement in cutting-edge issues.
Building Dynamics provides IAQ, HVAC, and Energy Management support to ensure the safe and efficient operation of public buildings.
Commercial buildings are not often used at the same capacity every day. A sophisticated system with the proper controls and sensors can alleviate overcompensation by the building’s HVAC system.
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) issues and problematic HVAC operations disrupt the learning environment. Building Dynamics helps school administrators avoid these conditions by facilitating the resolution of IAQ complaints and designing reliable HVAC systems.
Building Dynamics works with builders to facilitate the completion of their projects by managing moisture to prevent mold growth.
Hospital operation necessitates the most demanding control of the indoor environment and HVAC systems. With expertise in both public health and engineering, we are uniquely positioned to facilitate building-related aspects of infection control with services including construction management, IAQ investigation, water damage restoration and Legionella control.
Building Dynamics provides expert witness services to both defense and plaintiffs, emphasizing a science-based, site-specific approach. Our litigation support is essential as we assist attorneys in understanding the problems at hand and responding to litigation claims.
We provide effective management of HVAC operations and IAQ for collection preservation. We can also assist with Energy Management & Sustainability, corrosion control, and artifact decontamination.
Building Dynamics has assisted in the completion of stadiums, and sports arenas by managing moisture, remediating mold growth and promoting occupant comfort.
Construction projects and large industrial facilities need special attention to avoid poor air quality, excess moisture, water damage, and mold growth during construction, completion, and operation of the building or factory. Building Dynamics will work with our clients on designing and implementing the proper systems to avoid such problems.
