Thermal engineering and HVAC systems engineering

We have a public liability and property damage expertise in thermal engineering and HVAC systems engineering that cover the industrial and service sectors : offices, factories and residential buildings, industry and industrial process.

We identify the technical causes of the damages in order to determine any liability incurred and to assist our customers in resolving their high-stakes issues. Several different fields of expertise are needed to identify damage-related pathologies : hydraulics, air processing, control, plumbing, thermal, electrical engineering, mechanics, water and air treatment…

We analyze the causes of the damages and suggest an appropriate plan of action to help our customers prevent future risks.

Main areas of expertise

  • Cooling systems and industrial refrigeration : design or implementation defect, machine breakage and damage, cold chain break, room-temperature defect, thermal insulation defect, refrigerant liquid leak ;
  • Air-conditioning : performance defect, water damage, fire, condensation, corrosion (freezing water circuit and cooling system), air treatment equipment wear, automation issues, free cooling valves assembly defect ;
  • Heating and ventilation : installation, distribution and heat emission defect, condensation, corrosion (heating network, heating and hot water circuits), energy overconsumption, fan coil unit assembly defect, controlled mechanical ventilation systems installation non-compliance, fuel oil or gas burner malfunction, fire, explosion.

CPA experts identify the technical causes of the damages. They check the equipments’ compliance with thermal regulations (RT 2000, RT 2005 and 2012) and quality labels (HPE, Effinergie). They work hand-in-hand with their customers to find the most cost-effective way to resolve their claim.
