the Net Positive effect

Balancing design innovation with evolving building needs for the NET POSITIVE advancement of community and experience.

Community

Our mission is to improve the environment and well being of the central valley through innovation and service.

Millions of people call the central valley home, but they face several major challenges: We have some of the harshest environments in terms of heat, air quality and water availability, while also having some of the most stringent regulatory energy requirements in the United States. The means to make the necessary changes to address these challenges can be daunting, especially with extreme poverty rates in the Central Valley.

The Net Positive mission is to never settle for the world the way it is, but to embrace challenges as opportunities to make a difference, through innovation when appropriate, but more-so through service opportunities to support the missions of others.

Are you a 501(c)(3) looking for Mechanical Engineering Consulting in Central California? If so, please contact us to see where we may be able to assist.

Experience

The Net Positive Experience is first based on maximizing the client experience through transparency, responsiveness, and responsibility. We work with your team to customize a design approach that’s suited to your unique parameters; whether that’s addressing existing site restraints, working with the local enforcement agents, or even working with your unique funding opportunities.

Secondly, just like no two projects are the same, the Engineers at Net Positive recognize that no two user groups are the same. Users come in the form of both occupants and those tasked with maintaining the systems we design. As such, we work to understand, to design accordingly, and to educate without bias.

Finding a balanced solution that meets the needs for all involved, while also being energy and fiscally responsible is a great challenge. This challenge will ever be present. It’s what we’re consistently striving to reach further for, to embrace the rigor and hard work, and to ensure that the Net Positive Experience is had by all.
