Gary Welch, Principal
Gary has been committed to quality HVAC engineering for over forty years. He has extensive experience in commercial, institutional and healthcare design from initial concepts through design and construction supervision. Originally from Canada, Gary began his journey in mechanical design working for a mechanical contractor where he gained invaluable insight into the details of the contractor means and methods, constructability issues and the real cost impact of engineering decisions.
Previous to 15000 Inc. Gary worked for some of the largest engineering firms in San Francisco. This exposure taught him the most critical aspect of engineering design – the need to openly, honestly and frequently communicate with all members of the project team.
Currently Gary plays multiple roles for 15000 Inc. including marketing, financial planning, engineering design, Title 24 analysis and the production of bid documents. He specializes in HVAC, plumbing, hydronic and steam system design.
Gary is a certified CalGreen Inspector and a Certified Commissioning Authority.
Gary is a licensed pilot, has the cutest wife in the world – and two really rotten dogs – Willis and Bandit.
