Peter has been designing HVAC and plumbing systems for 20 years. As a student of Architecture, he is committed to integrating his work into the design with minimal impact. He founded SCEG with the idea that outstanding projects can only come from exceptional construction documents. Through this simple yet powerful approach, he built a company that serves a diverse spectrum of market segments, works equally well with designers and contractors and thrives in three-dimensional modelling.
As an engineer who enjoys a challenge, his expertise includes clean rooms, medical gasses, low temperature refrigeration, aquatic facilities, data centers and siphonic roof drainage across the U.S. and Mexico. Throughout his career, he has worked in almost every conceivable sector including residential, multi-family, schools, universities, hospitals, industrial, manufacturing, government, convention centers, hotels, aquariums, stadiums, museums, sound stages, television stations, theaters, office buildings, restaurants, retail centers and even amusement park rides. He has taken his passion for engineering to the next level by sharing it with others through speaking, teaching and mentoring.
