About Us


We have a unique way of thinking that combines good engineering principles with consideration of every aspect of your system, and incorporates the ethics of energy conservation and sustainability in everything we do.

We are energy experts, efficiency specialists, problem-solvers, trouble-shooters, and environmental detectives. We provide state-of-the-art engineering designs unmatched in the industry. There’s no Ivory Tower mentality at Pearson Engineering: We are the “boots on the ground” in your building, applying our years of practical, on-the-job experience to your needs.

We practice Value Engineering—we don’t just pay lip service to it. Value Engineering is often a euphemism for indiscriminate, short-sighted cost-cutting, which ends up costing a fortune down the road. You can save a little money by buying a cheaper piece of equipment, but you’ll be sorry when the utility and repair bills come in. We are advocates for you, and we have your long-term welfare in mind. We have been schooled in the fundamentals of true Value Engineering and continuously apply these principles on our projects.

Dick Pearson presented a paper at an International ASHRAE conference on “The True Meaning of Value Engineering.” Did you know that nearly 50% of the cost of owning a building for 40 years is the expense of operating and maintaining the building after it is occupied? Our Value Engineering strategies often yield significant capital cost reductions, but more importantly they focus on achieving the smallest possible life cycle cost.

We believe in assessing your needs and offering solutions that meet them, rather than trying to fit a square peg in a round hole. We are creative, responsive, appreciate the trust you place in us, and will always treat you with integrity and respect. We may have vast experience and cutting-edge expertise, but we have old-fashioned values and we consider you to be our partners and friends.

We are Pearson Engineering, and we aspire to be the firm you depend on for all your sustainable design, energy efficiency, and HVAC projects.
