Energy Planning

Energy Planning is an all-encompassing, iterative approach to fulfilling the energy requirements of your establishment. At NAC Engineering (NACE), we collaborate closely with you to create dependable, resilient, and practical energy solutions. Our services comprise energy management, procurement, sustainability, and on-site electricity generation.

Interior Design

Understanding how design can support wellbeing and belonging in the physical environment is essential to our practice. Design has the power to elevate one’s sense of place and connection to their surroundings. With a focus on the experience we are creating for people, our integrated interior design team uses scale, color, lighting, material, and furnishing to craft authentic space.

Lighting Design

Lighting brings the spaces we occupy to life—sculpting our experiences within three dimensions to reveal and enhance the project’s purpose. Integrating technology with beauty, and engineering with architecture, our innovative experts not only refine environments to promote human wellbeing, but also to deliver efficient solutions for sustainable outcomes.

Sustainability Consulting

At NAC, sustainable design is synonymous with good design. Good design respects and preserves the natural environment, creates healthy interior spaces, conserves resources, and allows for coming generations to use and reuse the materials. We make nature our partner in finding high performance, low-tech, low-cost solutions to maximize user wellbeing with fresh air and daylight.

Environmental Graphics

Environmental graphics have the power to raise stories and make them visible. Through wayfinding, signage systems, murals, color, and materiality, we design a connection between the community we serve and the spaces they will use. We welcome and orient, as well as express boldness, joy, and pride. We create a sense of place.

Research & Experience Development

Pursuing deeper relevance and understanding, NAC’s Research and Experience Development (RED) studio brings a fresh perspective with expertise in user experience, cognitive psychology, education, and human factors. RED investigates answers to client-specific questions in partnership with academic researchers and then shares them with the broader design community.
