There is increasing demand for more efficient, more comfortable and healthier buildings. Building Services engineers design Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) systems for buildings, and as such are integral to delivering truly sustainable buildings. As key members of the design team, MEP engineers are integral to delivering the internal climate and conditions required by the architectural vision and clients. Our MEP engineers and sustainability consultants work closely with architects to gain an understanding of the different spaces and to provide systems that blend into the spaces and efficiently provide the required comfort levels. As our structural colleagues, we design services that respect the nature of the building and its constructive logic, quality and lightness.
Key sustainability principals are integrated seamlessly into all our MEP designs, ensuring that clients receive carefully considered designs, which maximise on natural resources (such as daylight and renewable energy) whilst being conscious of the construction budget, modern design practices, robust design and future operations. We have significant experience working in emerging markets, ensuring our designs are appropriate for local regulations and construction practices.
Fire safety is a key part of planning any building. Preventative fire safety requirements are taken into consideration during all specialist planning processes and detailed in fire safety certificates and concepts. Since 2014, we have been working with experienced engineers to develop high quality, cost-effective fire safety concepts that are tailored to your building and its unique combination of uses in order to attain the safety goals laid out in your local state building code. We can support you with every service phase and with all kinds of projects, whether they involve standard or – our particular speciality – non-standard building designs.
