Since 1981, Shrout Tate Wilson has been providing superior consulting engineering services for mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection systems. The systems we design are sustainable by both the operator and the environment.

Our personality is a big piece of why we remain your partner beyond the first-project honeymoon. The rest of the pie is made up of early & often communication and a “roll-up our sleeves” attitude. This is why we don’t shy away from problems when they occur. Instead, we apply good manners and responsiveness to address challenges like scheduling and coordination.

Our projects focus on the places where people learn, play, live, work, worship, eat, heal, and connect. We currently work with over 190 architectural partners and owners serviced by our offices in Louisville, Lexington and Charleston, SC.  We are the authority in high-efficiency Chilled Beam, Geothermal and Variable Refrigerant Volume (VRV) design as well as classical chilled water, hot water, and steam systems. When this expertise is coupled with our ongoing drive for learning, we deliver innovative HVAC designs. Our electrical design expertise includes energy-efficient lighting, power distribution systems, and low voltage communication systems.
