A Few of Our Favorite Projects in 2019


With so many great projects in 2019, it was hard to pick just a few.  Here are some of our favorites that are in the works, or just finishing up.


Waggener Farm Park Recreation Center

Waggener Farm Park Recreation Center

“The WFP project has been my favorite project to work on in 2019 because of the many considerations and complications involved in designing around the various environments inside of a large recreation center.”

Zach Burgess / Project Engineer

Architect: Barker Rinker Seacat
Location: Berthoud, Colorado


National Park Service – Death Valley Scotty’s Castle

NPS Death Valley Scotty's Castle

“I liked this project because it had a variety of different mechanical systems (boiler, chiller, cooling tower, air handlers) and environmental conditions that made equipment selection unique (high outdoor temperatures, dusty/gritty air, historic appearance that we needed to maintain).”

Joe Wittenberg / Project Engineer

Architect: Anderson Hallas Architects
Location: Inyo County, California


NWC Stockyards and Stockyards Event Center

National Western Center

“It will be the most high profile project of my career as it will be a highly visible project in the city.”

Kerri Zoetewey / Project Engineer

Architect: HKS
Location: Denver, Colorado


DEN B-East and C-East Concourse Expansions

DEN Concourse C Construction

“I liked the project because it was a great opportunity and learning experience to work on a large, high profile project with such a professionally diverse and multidiscipline architecture/engineering team.”

Ryan Dunne, PE (CO) / Project Engineer

Architect: Jacobs
Location: Denver, Colorado


Denver Public Schools- Holm Elementary School

DPS Holm Remodel

“The lack of daylighting on the project required the architect to be creative in the classroom layouts. This required significant coordination of walls to structure with HVAC ductwork layout.”

Denise M. Dihle, PE / President

Architect: Anderson Mason Dale
Location: Denver, Colorado


National Park Service – Curecanti Elk Creek Visitor Center

NPS Curecanti Elk Creek Visitor Center

“This is one is my favorite because it is one of the first larger scale projects I’ve worked on.”

Ben Smiley / Project Engineer

Architect: Anderson Hallas Architects
Location: Gunnison, Colorado

2019 Women Make Buildings Better


Rocky Mountain Trane partnered with Tamara Ghandour of LaunchStreet to provide a thought-provoking networking event for women in the building industry.  This interactive half-day conference took place at the Sheraton Denver Tech Center Hotel on April 25th.

The purpose of this conference:

Women Make Buildings Better gives each woman the opportunity to discover their style of innovation and engage with others, unlocking their ability to be innovative in work and in life. Our goal is to help you leave with the tools you need to commit to take action towards elevating diversity of thought in YOUR industry and in everyday life.

Here are a few of many takeaways:

-Innovation: Thinking differently about what’s right in front of you to create an advantage.

-Anyone can innovate.  Everyone is responsible for innovation.

-How we innovate is unique to us.

-Value shifts, it doesn’t go away.

-Rearrange the box you have, instead of “thinking outside the box.”

-There are ways we can get involved in legislature to influence change.

-Present innovation in a different way.  Ask “What would you do to strengthen this idea?” instead of asking “What do you think?”.

-Show all of you.  Don’t conform to “fit-in,” this is doing a disservice to you and those you work with.

-We need people that can help fill in the gaps (when it comes to innovation).

-People don’t fear change; they fear being changed.

Women in leadership panel:

Our President, Denise Dihle, participated on the panel of powerhouse women in the HVAC industry.  When asked about the importance of maintaining a growth mindset, Denise said: “As soon as you are content, you are left behind.”

This offers a glimpse into how 360 Engineering operates, always striving to truly listen to the client’s needs, providing everyone with customized, innovative HVAC and plumbing engineering solutions.
