KCI is pleased to announce that Timothy Reynolds, PE, CEM, CxA, LEED AP BD+C, has taken on the role of practice leader overseeing the firm’s mechanical engineering work in the Mid-Atlantic. In this role, he will be responsible for continuing KCI’s growth and technical oversight in the planning and design of mechanical systems, as well as continuing his work focused on high performance buildings.
Reynolds joined KCI in 2017 as a leader in sustainable buildings and energy efficiency. During his 20-year career, his varied experience has included design, construction and commissioning of large-scale mechanical systems with a focus on energy and water conservation. He has completed projects focused on energy efficiency for commercial and industrial buildings, healthcare facilities, complex laboratories, and data centers. Reynold’s expertise includes HVAC and plumbing design, water reduction design, green building certification, and energy analyses and audits. He has established a reputation for technical leadership with a diverse client base including both the private and public sectors. His knowledge of codes as well as new and evolving technologies have made him an excellent resource for our clients, teaming partners and our design engineers.
Through KCI’s existing mechanical/electrical/plumbing regional practice, our team has extensive experience with a number of sustainable facilities, including net zero and various levels of LEED certification, as well as commissioning. In addition to overseeing mechanical work, Reynolds will continue to serve as practice leader for building efficiency, where he has led an expanded focus on helping our clients meet evolving national standards, such as ASHRAE 90.1 and USGBC LEED, for energy and water conservation, and even net zero building optimization.
Tim has a great deal of mechanical system knowledge and contractor experience, as well as a passion for energy and water efficiency. These two technical disciplines overlap significantly, and this expanded role will allow him to help more clients solve their problems in an efficient way.
