Steve Calabrese holds a BS degree in electrical engineering from
the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), and is a member of
several professional associations, including ASHRAE and AEE.
He has spent his entire post university career, which spans over 15
years, working for an HVAC contracting company, in various roles
including control systems design, project management, and
department management. His experience with mechanical
systems and design has been wrought from the day-to-day
activities as an employee of a mechanical contractor. Mr.
Calabrese couples his mechanical knowledge and experience
with a strong background in the area of electricity and electronics.
His control systems expertise includes electrical and electronic
stand-alone controls, as well as microprocessor-based direct
digital controls (DDC) and networked Building Automation
Systems (BAS). His practical knowledge of mechanical systems
and controls stems from the experiences gained by working for a
mechanical contractor, one that maintained control systems
design, installation, commissioning, and service capabilities.
