  • MEP Design Engineering
  • Building Physics & Energy Modelling
  • Sustainability & Planning
  • BREEAM Assessments & Consultancy
  • BIM & 3D Design Coordination
  • MEP Condition & Feasibility Reports

MEP Design Engineering

Our core business is the design of mechanical, electrical, and public health services (MEP) for all types of building. We have vast experience gained from over three decades of working on new-build and refurbishment projects in all sectors including bespoke and multi-residential, high-rise modular, offices, commercial, industrial, retail, and educational.

We pride ourselves on our ability to produce commercially aware designs that are thoroughly coordinated and incorporated into the architectural and structural elements of our projects.

We produce detailed design drawings, schematics, details, and layouts in both 2D and 3D formats, together with written specifications, schedules, and reports to relay our MEP designs.

Building Physics & Energy Modelling

Our Building Physics specialists are expert energy assessors (qualified CIBSE Low Carbon Consultants) who use IES and TAS thermal modelling software to assess building energy use.

The use of this software allows us to minimize energy use and carbon production during construction and for the life of the building by enabling us to collaborate closely with clients and the design team early in the design process.

Our building models also allow us to carry out;

  • Daylighting Calculations
  • HEA04 BREEAM Credits
  • ENE01 BREEAM Credits
  • Part L Building Regulation Compliance SBEM/BRUKL
  • Dynamic Thermal Modelling
  • Production of PEA and EPC, Domestic and Commercial
  • Production of Domestic SAP calculations
  • Production of computational fluid dynamic simulation

Sustainability & Planning

Using our expertise in low energy / renewable design, we provide a comprehensive pre-planning service to offer invaluable input from concept design to planning submission. Duties we carry out at this stage frequently include:

  • Production of energy and sustainability reports.
  • Overheating mitigation studies (including full dynamic modelling in accordance with CIBSE TM59).
  • Liaison with and ascertaining requirements of the Air Quality and Acoustic Specialists
  • Liaison with the local authority planning and sustainability teams. Space planning for MEP services.
  • Load assessments and utility applications.

BREEAM assessments & consultancy

We provide a comprehensive BREEAM Assessment and BREEAM Accredited Professional (AP) service. We have extensive experience with the processes required to design and achieve BREEAM certification to the highest standard for every project.

Our qualified BREEAM assessors also have unrivalled experience in the field of sustainability and have bespoke documents tailored to suit the requirements of our projects such that we can lead the design team through the full BREEAM process.

We also offer our clients a BREEAM Accredited Professional service (BREEAM AP). The BREEAM APs will provide the design team with guidance and support from the initial stages of the design process, through to construction, to ensure good environmental and sustainability practice is incorporated into a building in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

The BREEAM AP needs to be engaged with the design team pre-planning, so all opportunities can be identified and incorporated into the building design from inception.

BIM and 3D design coordination

We offer BIM (Building Information Modelling) and 3D design coordination using the latest versions of AutoDesk Revit and Navisworks software. We work closely with other design team members on separate and federated models as the design is developed and interrogated.

Our collaborative approach allows us to work simultaneously with the project architects, structural engineers, landscape architects and interior designers, etc. speeding up project timescales.

The BIM and 3D design coordination process provides the construction delivery team with a clash-free fully detailed design.

MEP condition & feasibility reports

We have extensive experience in the production of MEP Condition and Feasibility Reports.

Our condition reports are tailored to suit the requirements of the specific project, and following a detailed visual inspection of the project typically provide the following information:

  • Comment on the current effectiveness and condition of the plant and installations
  • Comment on the age of the installation against CIBSE Guide M tables
  • Identify areas of particular concern or defect
  • Comment on the sizing and suitability of the plant and equipment installed
  • Review available O&M information, maintenance, and periodic testing reports
  • Relevant images of the installed services
  • Clear summary of any required action
  • Executive summary summing-up the overall condition and recommendations.
Our feasibility reports outline the requirements for the next stages of a project and are often used as a project feasibility map the wider design team and Client use to develop project budgets and design planning.
