When asked by clients to describe the profession we prefer to use the analogy of a human body where the MEP engineer is responsible for making you live and breathe, your heart, lungs, liver, brain, in fact all the dynamic parts of the person but for the built environment.
Our MEP engineers are not confined to just mechanical, electrical or ventilation systems but areresponsible for ensuring that all the systems required to make a building live and breath are present, optimaly designed and functioning properly in order to get the building occupants healthy, comfortable, energy efficient and safe within their environment.

Key in keeping your sites, and the assets serving them operating efficiently is managing the ongoing maintenance in a proactive, rather than reactive way. Maintaining service function and keeping your core business operating without interruption.
Energy Reviews and ESOS Assessments
With an increasing focus on the reduction of carbon emissions and rising energy costs, it is now more than ever a time to optimise the efficiency of your existing systems and to consider long-term strategies for energy management and plant replacement.
Predicting how a building will perform is vital at an early stage of any project. Understanding energy use, carbon emissions, and the interaction of the construction with heat gains and losses inform the design process.
