There he supported both maintenance and construction activities with design and trouble shooting of physical and central plant systems, compliance with DoD, DoE, and other government requirements. Additionally, Mr. Little was involved in developing emergency shut-down procedures for Critical and Testing facilities, including commercial utilities as well as cryogenics.

Mr. Little design expertise in mechanical and plumbing systems, includes medical gases and hydronics. His design approaches consider design for economics to support the customer’s budgetary and time constraints, maintaining compliance with applicable Code requirements. Mr. Little’s diversified experiences in a variety of mechanical venues brings let another level of competency to the arena of mechanical design, project management, and value engineering.
