Commonwealth Engineers Inc. has more than 40 years of experience in providing environmental engineering services focused on water resources including potable water, wastewater, and stormwater. Recently Commonwealth Engineers hired Toby Church, a licensed professional electrical engineer, to expand its services to include electrical / mechanical and instrumentation and control design; energy audits and power quality analysis to better serve Indiana communities.
Church has more than 20 years of experience in the electrical and control field and is a licensed master electrician, an Association of Energy Engineers certified energy auditor and has formal training in power quality analysis. Hoosier communities will benefit from the combination of Toby’s experience and Commonwealth Engineer’s expertise on water resources and funding sources in the state of Indiana.
“We have had two projects for which Commonwealth and Toby Church have worked on for us. Both projects involved significant refurbishment and installation of new electrical, HVAC and I&C systems,” Town of Fishers Assistant Director of Public Works Rick Farnham said, in a press release. “Toby is a good communicator both on a technical and practical level. Toby’s approach takes into consideration operation’s staff issues, work routine and reporting systems. He is open to input from all levels to ensure a better end result. For both our projects the Town has a better end-product based on Commonwealth and Toby’s technical expertise and knowledge.”
“Commonwealth has subcontracted electrical / mechanical & instrumentation and control work with Toby Church for many years. Bringing Toby on board is a natural progression given our past, long standing relationship and where our industry is heading in the future. With Toby on-staff Commonwealth now offers an even broader variety of complimentary services – including energy audits of water resource facilities,” Commonwealth Engineers President Al Stong said, in a press release. “Our energy costs in Indiana and in the Midwest have been low compared to the east and west coast, but these costs are increasing. With these increasing costs, along with the potential to harness wasted operational and maintenance monies currently allocated to electric costs and re-allocate them to much needed capital improvements projects, Commonwealth’s ability to provide this resource will evolve quickly as communities begin the realize the tremendous advantages it presents.”
Headquartered in Indianapolis, Commonwealth Engineers Inc. also has offices in Evansville, and Fort Wayne. For more information, visit the website at www.commonwealth-engineers.com or call 888-1177.
