Associate, Mechanical Designer
Richard D. Miles has 34 years of experience that includes the design of mechanical systems that meet the needs of diverse clients, from commercial installations and financial institutions to schools and colleges. He has solved the challenges of conditioning spaces for computer centers and museums, providing the critical temperature and humidity requirements that keep equipment operational and art collections from being damaged.
