In recent years because of the highly competitive nature of the business climate,  many Architect/Engineer (A/E)  firms have reduced staff in certain areas, including equipment specialists, electrical, mechanical and structural analysts, third party design reviews and forensic engineering. Under normal circumstance this is not a problem. 

However, when unusual problems arise for which the A/E firm either does not have the expertise or has only one person (no qualified independent reviewer) with the required expertise then it becomes a problem.

 CCC fills this gap on a just-in-time basis.  CCC can act as an extension of the A/E's staff in the areas listed below to allow the A/E to perform the work for its client without taking on the permanent overhead of one or more experts.

Training -

bulletRunning voltage and motor starting voltage drop calculations
