André Gill is the President of a Mechanical Engineering Firm in Rhode Island. André a NCEES Model Engineer licensed in RI and MA with a multitude of experience, including over 9 years in Biotech, 2 years in Oil & Gas, and 7 years in Naval Nuclear power. As an Engineer André has been responsible for the design of piping systems and HVAC systems in industry and in Biotech facilities specifically: ASME Section 1 power piping, B31.1, B31.3 and B31.4, B31.8 piping systems including WFI, Clean Steam and Process Gas systems. HVAC design experience has included design of Clean Rooms, cGMP Warehouses, Churches, General Office and Breeching for CTG’s, HSG’s, and power plant equipment. During time in industry André served in various engineering roles within Biotech as a lead facilities engineer, global critical utilities engineer, process and project engineer. André has engineered projects that reduced the consumption of natural gas by 5%; increased boiler operating efficiency by 16%; reduced quenching water usage by 20,000 gallons. Other projects included using reverse osmosis reject to supply cooling tower make saving 8,000,000 gallons per year from being sent directly to drain while the same amount is reused to provide cooling water. André engineered a solution to deliver WFI to a remote location in a facility which lacked clean utilities to support a WFI still, by providing a skid that used chilled water to condense clean steam from an adjacent building. André has been involved in the development of a Global Engineering Rouge Monitoring and the revision and creation of piping specifications.
