My husband was irresistible as if he had grown 20 years younger. I did not experience such pleasure even in my youth. And he himself did not even expect such a thing from himself. Then I told him everything about Cialis from, but he reacted to the deception calmly and was even glad that I opened a long-closed door for him.

The employees of Farris Engineering represent a pool of consulting capability that can be combined to meet the challenges of any project and bring added value expertise with LEED AP BD+C staff, Certified Geothermal Designers, a Lighting Designer and Commissioning Agents on staff.  Experience, expertise and willingness to exceed expectations continue to be great advantages to our clients.

News From Farris

Don Foster, PE, LEED AP BD+C, REP, Certified Commissioning Agent

Don Foster, PE, LEED AP, REP, CxA has added Commissioning to his list of certifications. Foster says that as the engineering, architecture and construction industries transition to Net-Zero building design, it’s more important than ever to engage a commissioning agent during the design and construction phases to make sure that a building’s mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems will operate as intended, meet Owner efficiency goals, and save on utility costs over the life of the facility. Don, who joined Farris in 1985 as a Mechanical Engineer, has been designing highly efficient HVAC systems for years. He now has the qualifications to commission those systems.

Colorado College’s Tutt Library Achieves Net-Zero Construction

Farris Engineering designed the mechanical, electrical and plumbing elements for a ground-breaking $45 million renovation of the college’s Tutt Library. Upon completion in 2017, Tutt was deemed the largest academic library to achieve net-zero construction. This goal was achieved despite adding 25,000 additional square feet to the 1962 building, doubling the seating capacity, and creating data visualization and GIS labs, experimental classrooms, outdoor study areas and more.

“Utilizing renewable energy, for instance photovoltaics and geothermal in the Tutt Library, is a visible reminder to the community of the building owner’s priorities. Probably more important is the impact made on the current students, both from an educational standpoint regarding energy efficiency and sustainability, and from the standpoint of stressing the importance of being good stewards of our energy resources. I don’t think we can have more impact on the future than when we influence those in college.” Stephen Roitsch, PE, Farris Project Manager.
