Key Staff

Since launching in 1989, Davidovich & Associates (D&A) has continued to be recognized as a industry leader in Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Life Safety design. D&A offers exceptional licensed professional LEED AP engineers who perform in a timely manner without compromising the quality of the design. We pride ourselves in our organization, where:

  • Professional engineers always check the final plans.
  • AutoCAD, BIM and Revit is a way of life and not a mere tool to enhance the appearance of the drawings.
  • Mechanical, Plumbing, Electrical, Lighting, Energy Conservation, LEED, CalGreen, Commissioning and Life Safety Engineering trades have melded with computer technology to form a new dynamic and creative process called Integrated Engineering.

Davidovich & Associates' Project Approach

A key component of sustainable design is energy modeling. Davidovich & Associates integrates energy modeling with our MEP engineering service, allowing clients to holistically view the impact of their design on the energy consumption of their development. Our clients benefit from viewing the energy impacts of the proposed design modifications, including the addition of energy recovery systems, thermal storage, demand ventilation, ultra efficient plumbing fixtures, green roofs, photovoltaic and solar hot water systems, etc.

Appropriate lighting can define and enhance forms and spaces, draw attention to certain details, affect feelings, display movement, and create efficient and pleasant work environments. Our job is to work within a team to define the most appropriate lighting system for each project. That means examination of space, form, function, environment, construction schedules, control systems, energy efficiency, budget, and maintenance ease.

WITH US YOU’RE NEVER IN THE DARK

Vladimir Davidovich, P.E.

Vladimir has over 27 years experience in different phases of Electrical Engineering, Energy Management, Lighting Design and Fire Alarm Systems. He began his career in the Former Soviet Union as an R & D Engineer, designing, manufacturing and testing special electrical machinery equipment for the military. In 1978, Vladimir moved to Israel where he became an executive for the State of Israel Electric Power Company. His responsibilities included overseeing the design, installation and maintenance of power distribution transformers. In 1984, Vladimir left Israel in pursuit of a career in the United States. He established himself in Los Angeles and worked as a leading Electrical Engineer in several Engineering Consulting firms.

In 1989, Vladimir founded Davidovich & Associates – a fully service consulting Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Life Safety, Lighting Design and Dry Utilities consulting engineering firm. Vladimir is intimately involved in every aspect of the firm’s activities including the design and construction of the projects under contract. He has a hands-on approach and the ability to represent all the trades (Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Lighting and Energy Conservation) throughout the initial stages of the design, which makes him a valuable component of any team.

Vladimir is known in the Development, Architectural and Construction communities for his no-nonsense “best value for the money” engineering approach. His innovative ideas and ability to establish mutually beneficial relationships with all members of the design and construction team has earned him recognition and respect in the industry.

Teaching by example, Vladimir has installed dimmable fluorescent lighting fixtures, controlled by lighting sensors to provide the most efficient combination of natural and artificial lighting. Vladimir is also a frequent contributor and lecturer for LEED and Energy Conservation for Real Estate, Construction, and Architectural Communities. Further, Vladimir has mandated all his engineers at D&A to take the video course, provided by CHPS web site.

Health Care Facilities conversion and renovation is a complicated field that requires specialized knowledge, experience and willingness to constantly update the required criteria related to electrical engineering. DSA and other regulatory agencies require the same. Vladimir has successfully demonstrated his ability to overcome challenges and consistently deliver solid electrical engineering design on projects with tight budget and aggressive schedule.

Bruce Rohani, P.E., LEED AP

By leveraging over 25 years of experience, Bruce Rohani is able to find the most cost sensitive, technically sound and environmentally conscience mechanical engineering solutions on any project type. Since joining Davidovich & Associates in 1996, Bruce efficiently managed the mechanical & plumbing department on a wide variety of prects including several on-call and municipal developments.

As the Mechanical Project Manager & Director of Sustainable Design, Bruce is involved in design of Public, Healthcare, Mental Health, Commercial, and Educational & Government facilities including schematic design, design of construction drawings, load and energy modeling calculations, client interface, meetings and presentations, specification writing, review of shop drawings as well as plan check approvals and other compliances. Bruce makes himself readily available to answer any questions related to sustainable design including questions on energy recovery systems, thermal storage, demand ventilation, ultra efficient plumbing fixtures, green roofs, photovoltaic and solar hot water systems etc.

One of Bruce’s main areas of concentration has been in the renovation and conversion of existing Healthcare and Educational Facilities. His excellent work has earned him a solid reputation in designing reliable, easily maintainable and sustainable Mechanical and Plumbing Engineering systems for numerous Health Care and LAUSD facilities. Bruce has mastered these skills by his constant involvement in resolving the arising challenges of healthcare renovation projects that require a clear understanding of the ever increasingly demands of patients and physicians in different medical disciplines, medical insurances and regulatory agencies, OSHPD and OSHPD 3 criteria, DSA, and the sutainability goals established by CHPS and LEED systems.

Bruce’s experience also includes the renovation of existing medical offices and
clinics of Century City Medical Office Building, Glendale Adventist Medical Office Building, Olive View Hospital, Kaiser Permanente Medical Office Building, as well as Cedars Sinai Medical Center. Mental Health, Pediatric Care, Physical Therapy, Pulmonary Therapy, Dental Offices, Cosmetic Surgery, Spine Surgery, Adult and Senior Care, Imaging Facilities, Oncology, Laboratories are just a few selected areas that Bruce has successfully worked on.
