ANCIS' forte is advanced indoor environmental and energy solutions for facilities in general and for mission-critical facilities in particular. Our roots can be traced to the legendary Bell Communications Research (Bellcore); we have extensive knowledge of telecom, data-center, and other mission-critical environments. And, we understand computer modeling of complex building systems from the ground up. ANCIS is uniquely positioned to provide truly optimized solutions.
We have expert knowledge of designing indoor environmental and energy systems, identifying shortcomings in existing systems, and analyzing historic events. Our Comprehensive Services are often based on advanced computer modeling that has the unique capacity to predict indoor conditions such as temperature, humidity, and airborne contaminants as well as whole-building energy performance. We also offer a series of stand-alone Modeling Services to help control key indoor climate parameters. Lastly, ANCIS provides leading disaster prevention services.
We have provided expertise to numerous high-profile projects. For example, we designed the first large-scale displacement ventilation system in a U.S. telecommunications central office to ensure reliable and energy-efficient cooling of network equipment. Our experts also analyzed multiple cooling solutions when a leading chip manufacturer planned their next-generation data centers. The final solution provides superior equipment cooling, low energy usage, and low initial cost. And, we provided forensic environmental modeling to fend off a $50M electronic equipment insurance claim originating from a fire/smoke event.
Our team utilizes a complete array of quality indoor climate, HVAC, and energy modeling tools that are both accurate and cost effective. These tools span a broad range, from detailed Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to whole-building energy analysis software. The power of advanced computer modeling has been recognized by many industries, from aircraft manufacturers to data-center designers. It provides an unmatched capacity to analyze various design options and to investigate historic events where actual data may be limited or nonexistent (forensics).
