Emtec has established a strong foothold throughout New Jersey, New York (Long Island and Queens), and the Tri-state area designing multifamily developments, healthcare facilities, and industrial warehousing and distribution facilities. Constantly working to stay ahead of the curve, the company has also built a niche in engineering and design expertise in film studio facilities in Jersey City, Brooklyn, and New York.
Emtec augments its specialties in code compliance and is highly conversant with New York State, NYC and International Building Code (IBC) requirements. Where required, Emtec assesses and discusses alternative approaches or techniques to resolve potential code or design issues, offering a design solution to ensure compliance. In doing so, the company often consults with local jurisdiction agencies to ensure all regulations are followed and further assesses any questions or concerns. Emtec believes in staying on top of evolving codes while helping clients optimize their time and resources.
In addition to its knack for creative design and innovative engineering, Emtec has committed to promoting sustainability. “With sustainability as a core objective of Emtec’s operations, we continue to expand our philosophy to design and construct buildings for our future generations,” adds Solano. “Our role in the value chain of building development plays a critical role in supporting more sustainable communities.”
As a forward-thinking company, Emtec was founded on principles embedded in the company’s DNA. Rooted in a commitment to offering high-quality solutions for complex technical issues associated with MEP, FP/FA services are a mainstay of our operations. Beyond its design documents, the company’s strategic approach of focusing on the details – big or minute- of a project is the main recipe for its success. Based on several years of experience, Emtec has developed several standards and procedures internally that equip it with a competitive engineering edge and enable it to ensure business continuity and adaptable capabilities to ensure success for clients and partners.
For Emtec, the cornerstone of every client engagement is based on the three R’s: responsiveness, reasoning, and relationship. Responsiveness is crucial in an industry where time is of the essence. Led by a dedicated team of engineering, construction, and design professionals, Emtec effectively collaborates with all project stakeholders, whether it’s the owner, architect, civil engineer or General Contractor. The key to this responsiveness is backing its services with clear reason and rationale. Emtec offers a direct and practical solution associated with the design and constructability of any project. Emtec keenly focuses on strengthening its relationships with clients by acting as an extension of their team and aligning with clients’ goals from the get-go.
Emtec continues to expand its operations and team. With 20% of our team members staying with our organization for 10+ years, we have a proven track record of retaining knowledge, which contributes to effectively servicing long-term clients. At the same time, we are proud of our growing footprint and are constantly expanding our competency, skill-set, and experience, nourishing a unique culture where employees can thrive.
