Novus Engineering was founded in 1981 as Energy Resources Development Corporation, or ERDC. In the early years, the firm specialized in providing consultation to energy projects in cogeneration, hydropower, waste-to-energy and renewable technologies. Our expertise and client base shifted in our first decade toward energy efficiency, fuel procurement and mechanical/electrical design and analysis. In 1994, we became a professional engineering firm, Novus Engineering, P.C. Our range of services and staff expertise have continued to grow as we enter our fourth decade. Today, Novus is a multidisciplinary engineering consulting firm serving clients in all sectors. Our single office in Delmar, NY carries out projects throughout New York State. The firm has remained small by choice, providing personalized and consistent consultation to our clients. Our staff of 15 has a broad range of competencies and credentials, including licensed professional engineers, LEED®-certified staff, certified energy managers, lighting specialists, acoustics experts, and technical analysts.

The degree to which Novus has enjoyed long-term and repeat business from our clients is a testament to the quality of service we have provided over our 30+-year history. We have, for more than two decades, provided broad-ranging services in energy analysis, fuel procurement and environmental compliance to the psychiatric hospital campuses of the NYS Office of Mental Health. We have provided design and analysis services to several renovation and new construction projects over the past decade at Bard College. For the past 15 years we have carried out air permitting and compliance activities for the University at Albany. Prominent commercial property management companies in the Capital District have repeatedly engaged Novus to provide design/analysis and retrocommissioning services for their facilities. Likewise, the region’s largest design/build construction firms rely on Novus for mechanical design, LEED assistance and related services.

Novus is proud of its history of service, and continues our tradition of applying competence and professionalism to meet the needs of our clients.
