About H2Engineering

Who We Are

H2Engineering is committed to sustainable design practices from both a design professional’s and owner’s perspective. Our standard practice is promoting sustainable design on all of our projects, whether attempting LEED certification or not. Our commitment has impacted, ┬ánot only our everyday work environment and the people that work in it, but also our neighbors and the community around us. Our experience with the LEED process is more than just general knowledge; we understand how it works. Our firm has been a member of the USGBC since 2005 and we currently have 5 LEED APs on our staff. Our own headquarter building was awarded the first LEED Gold certification in Tallahassee. H2Engineering has gained valuable experience on LEED projects from serving as designers, LEED APs, commissioning authorities, and as an owner. We understand your objectives and the challenges you face with in achieving them. Our personal investment into our own facility exemplifies H2Engineering’s dedication to a sustainable built environment. We take pride in the fact that we have worked on some of the most energy conscious buildings in the region. Whether it is the under floor air distribution system at the LEED Gold Certified Department of Revenue buildings, the state-of-the-art data center for the Leon County/City of Tallahassee Joint Public Safety Complex, the chilled beams at FSU’s LEED Gold Johnson Building, the thermal energy storage system at the LEED Gold First District Court of Appeal building, the “Net-Zero” Leon County Sustainable Demonstration Center, or any of the other innovative projects we have engineered, energy efficiency is always a priority.

Our History

Founded as Hines, Hartman, & Associates in 1977 to provide mechanical and electrical engineering services to the north Florida market, we have grown to provide a variety of engineering services across the United States. In 2008, we introduced a new name, H2Engineering, keeping our roots, but positioning ourselves to move forward. For over thirty-five years we have provided clients with great service through relationships. We believe no project is a success without the concerted effort of every team member; and the level of that success is proportional to the team’s ability to work together. The relationships we have and continue to build are the foundation of our success. Our founding partner, Mike Hartman has instilled these values in the company, and our current principals, Matt Scaringe and Ryan Chewning continue to foster them as they steer the company into the future.

Our Mission

…to be your first choice for engineering services. …to be the engineers you count on to help you exceed your expectations. We will always make recommendations and analyze┬ábased on sound engineering principles. At the same time, we recognize the project design is yours, and we are providing a service for you; so we endeavor to provide engineering solutions to complement project goals.

H2 has also proven to be unusually responsive and attentive to our particular project requirements…I hereby recommend them without reservation.

H2 performed brilliantly on the project, on top of that we entered into a continuing service contract with H2 to provide performance enhancements.
