Kenneth F. Abel has been providing consulting engineering and system
design & implementation services for a wide range of projects
and clients including architects, corporate users & facilities
managers, engineers and contractors, both in the private corporate
sector and in government, for over 25 years.
Abel Consulting is the realization of a desire to provide the personalized
commitment and everyday contact with Principal level resources to
all clients, something that can be lacking in larger consulting
firms. Mr. Abel personally oversees all projects, calling upon a
vast array of design and CAD resources to insure timely response
to all issues and on time completion of each project phase. Our
engineering staff effectively interfaces with professionals in all
The second cornerstone on which this firm is based is that of a
strong, cooperative relationship with all of the top contracting
firms in this business. The traditional view of contractors held
by many consulting firms is that of mere implementers of the consultants
will, with nothing more to add but requests for change orders. This
is simply not the case. This outdated view generally leads to wasted
hours spent arguing over insignificant design points in an effort
to prove who is 'Boss'. The contractors in this industry can be
a vital and valuable partner if respected and treated as equals.
Once a bid is awarded or a design-build is negotiated, Abel Consulting
will form a team with all parties, including the chosen contracting
firm. This insures a smooth, on-time and in-budget installation.
It is our goal to form a design partnership with our clients, bringing
them into the technical world in such a way as to allow them to
make informed and intelligent decisions about their facilities.
State-of-the-art instrumentation and computer modeling tools are
used to accurately define problems and develop appropriate solutions.
Through our in-house staff and the various design resources available
through over 25 years in the acoustical, audio and audiovisual design
and consulting industry, Abel Consulting can provide you and your
clients with unequaled quality and performance.
