EP Engineering Completes Montauk Project With Build Well Development

EP Engineering is excited to announce it has provided Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing design service for a new detached 6-bedroom single family home located in Montauk. The house is a 5,000 square foot home, featuring an upside-down floor plan with a panoramic ocean view across the infinity pool on the top floor. EP worked alongside both the architectural design and construction teams to create an efficient and functional home without compromising aesthetic vision.

“This was a very beautiful project that came with quite a few challenges,” says Giovanni E. Meléndez, Partner, EP Engineering “But with all of our EP Engineering team collaboration, I am very proud of what we produced here.”

There were a few engineering challenges that arose during this project. The first issue was heating and cooling the house while maximizing ceiling heights in featured spaces. Second, there was providing optimized lighting controls. Finally, engineers were faced with providing necessary infrastructure for high-end equipment and appliances.

While there were challenges, there were also successful outcomes. The team coordinated with Lutron to integrate Caseta smart lighting control system, as well as coordinated water, power and fuel supply for the infinity pool, propane fireplaces, high-end kitchen equipment, and an outdoor grilles and irrigation system.  One major outcome was implementing aesthetically pleasing, effective and efficient heating and cooling features:

  • High efficiency VRF heat pump systems
  • Floor supply grilles to minimize the need for overhead ductwork
  • Integrated duct runs into structure to avoid dropping ceilings wherever possible
  • Electric floor heating mats in bathrooms for optimal comfort
