Send Win an Email

Win Packer graduated from Utah State University in the field of Mechanical Engineering. Win chose the consulting engineering field because of his enjoyment interacting with people and members of diversified design teams. In his words – “I didn’t want to be stuck in a cubicle think tank for 50 hours a week designing some small piece of a rocket.” Match his people skills with his engineering and design skills, and you receive a very talented and motivated mechanical engineer team member.

Win Packer swiftly excelled, and in 2004 earned the position of partner and part owner of WHW Engineering, Inc. In 2012 Win was appointed President of WHW Engineering, Inc. and serves as the Principal Engineer.  Win values engineering and developing HVAC and plumbing systems that balance maximum environmental sustainability, building comfort, and system dependability. Win’s ability to consult with clients, building owners, facility departments, and the installing contractor has allowed him to design and engineer HVAC and plumbing systems that integrate with the visions and expectations of each party involved. Win has capitalized on this ability to design and engineer many premier projects throughout the region.

Internally, Win leads by example. He is supported by talented staff engineers, drafters, designers, and support personnel. His knowledge and experience is used to oversee the computer analysis of buildings to determine load requirements, compliance to State energy codes, LEED requirements, and engineering of innovative energy conserving HVAC systems. He has an extensive feel on organizing the different areas of the design process to output a complete and accurate mechanical design.

Win adopted sustainable design practices early on in his career. He became a LEED Accredited Professional in 2006, and has leveraged his research and knowledge to design and engineer many LEED certified projects. His approach to sustainable design goes much further than published energy consumption guides from equipment manufacturers. His philosophy is to try and design systems that maximize energy efficiency, without sacrificing performance, reliability, maintainability, and overall life cycle cost.

In his very limited free time, Win enjoys spending time with his wife, their daughter, and their two sons. He is also an avid fly fisherman and has many times been on the road late at night to feed this habit.

Win has an open door policy and is always willing to consult about future, present, or past projects.
