A successful consultant provides strategic, substantial, and practical advisory services to its clients. It uses its deep industry knowledge, valuable experience and analytical skills to fulfill its client’s requirements.
Established in 2008, LEAD Consultancy and Engineering Services (India) Pvt. Ltd is a leading organization which aims to offer consultancy services in the sphere of MEP & green design. Within a short span of time, the company has emerged to become one of the top MEP & green building design consultants in the country. By bringing immense value and satisfaction to its clients, it has successfully consulted hundreds of projects across India, and extended its client base across the globe which includes Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, Qatar, and Dubai.
LEAD’s expert team can design any type of Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC) System from very large central plant to smaller VRF system and that includes the systems for data center, IT commercial buildings, retail, schools, residential, hotel, pharma, factories, hospital buildings and master plan level system development. It works on varied projects from smaller size to bigger size; it has been providing very energy efficient HVAC design solutions. Its expertise and mantra is to reduce the capital cost and operational cost of the system through its value engineered design services.
LEAD proceeds on its successful journey under the insightful leadership of Mr. CG Krishnan, the Managing Director of the company. He is an ME (Mechanical), a LEED- accredited professional, a certified Energy Auditor by Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), India, and a member of ASHRAE, USA. Mr. Krishnan’s fascination and passion for technology and entrepreneurship is very well reflected in his pursuit for engineering at an academic and professional level, and his move to the setting up of LEAD, an entrepreneurial venture. He has done his post-graduation with specialization in Refrigeration & Air conditioning with a work experience spanning over 23 years in the field of HVAC, energy and green buildings. During this span, he has also worked as an HVAC consultant on several projects for diverse clients from IT sector companies, commercial complexes, data centers, factories, public buildings, hotels, hospitals, malls and educational institutions.
Mr. Krishnan has provided energy modeling and lighting simulation solutions to various types of commercial and industrial buildings. He has gained expertise in energy modeling & lighting simulation after undergoing advanced energy modeling training at Architectural Energy Corporation(AEC), USA, using internationally recognized soft wares like Visual DOE – 4.1 (DOE 2.1 Engine), Ecotect & Radiance software for lighting simulation.
He has gathered proficiency in Internet of Things (IoT) & Operational BIM solutions for smart city / smart building automation system. The IoT platform based concept is very revolutionary and started picking up globally and it is being introduced to the building industries in India.
Constant Quality Improvement
The company keeps updating its knowledge very consistently and continuously. LEAD’s recent effort is to bring the IoT based smart building solutions with Operation Building Information Modeling (BIM) for the Building Industry. This unique smart building project is expected to be operational by the end of 2018.
It uses the latest and internationally recognized soft wares like HAP, IES, Visual DOE & Standards like ASHRAE / ECBC / NBC to perform detailed energy simulations to size its HVAC equipment very precisely.
The company also uses Revit (BIM) for clash detection and quantification to ensure the design delivered by it is as good as Good for Constructions. It aims to achieve lower capital cost based on the functionality of the project requirement; lowest operational cost considering the Return on Investment (ROI) and ease of operation and maintenance of the system.
LEAD uses detailed & coordinated MEP design drawings to go for constructions without any further engineering works from the contractor side.
It complies with all the necessary standards as required for the project & provides all back up engineering calculations to its client for review and no design is carried out by thumb rule or based on just by past experience.
Future Plans of LEAD
LEAD marches ahead towards a bright future with various plans and policies. Its upcoming new services are in the domain of smart building. It also aims at becoming Master System Integrators (MSI) for the smart buildings / city being built using IoT & operational BIM solutions.
