Bighorn Consulting Engineers is a mechanical and electrical engineering firm dedicated to providing the highest quality consulting engineering services for commercial, educational, institutional and residential building clients.  The firm is owned and operated by Shawn Brill, P.E., CEM; Blaine Buck, P.E., CBCP and Mark Harrington, P.E., LEED AP.

Our personnel have over 100 years in the industry with experience not only in consulting engineering but also equipment sales, temperature controls, and facilities management.  This diverse background enables us to better understand client needs and expectations.

We offer a full range of engineering services including system evaluations, life-cycle cost analysis, conceptual planning and budgeting and construction documents and specifications.  We work equally well in a traditional plan and spec delivery system or in the design/build delivery system.

Energy Modeling

Our personnel have extensive training and experience with TRACE 700 hour by hour energy modeling software.  This program is used to perform LEED, Energy Star and Green Globes energy simulations for proposed buildings.  ASHRAE 90.1 guidelines are used to model the baseline and proposed systems in TRACE 700 to predict energy savings.

All construction drawings are produced either using AutoCAD or Revit software programs as produced by AutoDesk.  Bighorn is well versed in the usage of Revit BIM software for producing mechanical, electrical and plumbing(MEP)drawings to portray these systems in a collaborative 3D model.
