Sustainable & Renewable Energy Design

Communities, corporations, and governments can be better global citizens by assuming responsibility for their environmental and social impacts. The cost of energy and the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is rising. As conventional fuel costs rise, so does return on investment from energy efficiency improvements and conversions to alternative energy systems. Galli Engineering’s mechanical and electrical engineers provide these services. Renewable and/or conservation energy solutions may include solar photovoltaics, solar thermal technology, geothermal HVAC supplementation, wind turbine electrical production, rainwater collection and utilization, grey water reclamation, building automation, and daylighting and passive solar irradiation capture.

Engineers setting up solar panels

Our landscape planning and design group is led by seasoned designers and engineers with an in-depth understanding of ecological design, preservation, and restoration. We see each project as an opportunity to provide thoughtful, creative, and contextual solutions for parks, plazas, playgrounds, and open space.

Our landscape designers work alongside the full complement of planners, engineers, and environmental professionals at GE to add value to projects with varying objectives including stormwater management, public outreach, environmental review, permitting, and visualization.

Low Impact Site Design

Properly managed stormwater can reduce off-site environmental impacts, can add attractive green features to the landscape and will protect surface waters and green spaces.

Environmental Management And Pollution Prevention

Galli Engineering assists our clients reduce the environmental impact of their products, activities, and services. We can reduce environmental liability exposure and increase operating efficiency by helping with:

  • Environmentally Preferable Purchasing and Supply Chain Analyses
  • Life Cycle Analysis
  • Air, Soil, and Water Monitoring

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building rating systems are the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of sustainable high performance green buildings, homes and neighborhood developments as established by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).

Galli Engineering promotes a holistic approach to sustainable design through site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor air quality for the benefit of our health and the environment.

The LEED portfolio of green rating systems is a roadmap for measuring, documenting and certifying the successful sustainable design process for:

  • New Commercial Construction
  • Major Renovation
  • Existing Building Operations and Maintenance
  • Commercial Interiors Projects
  • Core and Shell Development Projects
  • Homes
  • Schools
  • Retail
  • Neighborhood Developments
  • Guidelines for Multiple Buildings and Campus Building Projects

Galli Engineering strives to develop sustainable projects incorporating energy efficient building design and sustainable sites through innovative and efficient design and construction and operational solutions. Our designs balance environmental responsibility, achieve resource efficiency and provide occupant comfort and well-being. Whether or not a project seeks certified LEED status, implementation of the LEED rating system and/or the integration of green building technologies for specific scope of work items results in a more sustainable project.

Galli Engineering has proven professionals certified by the USGBC as LEED AP’s. Our professional staff is experienced with each key LEED component of sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor air quality.

Our services typically initiate with an investigation of potential sustainable projects for clients and prepares LEED feasibility reports, many of which are developed into proposed LEED projects. We provide LEED design and commissioning services. We are a recognized Green Advocate, active in our community and provide educational seminars, professional services to governmental agencies drafting LEED legislation and are members of the USGBC’s National and Long Island Chapters.
