Building Services Design
We can provide a complete design and specification service for all Mechanical and electrical engineering services covering the variety of buildings in the numerous property and construction sectors. Our design philosophy is to provide a flexible and holistic approach at all times ensuring clients needs and requirements are met throughout the process. We utilise various technical software packages including IES, Amtech and in-house CAD expertise to deliver the highest quality design and specification documentation. We endeavor to provide cost-effective solutions in line with project cost parameters whilst employing the latest proven technologies and equipment to meet project brief and clients individual requirements.
We have extensive experience in the undertaking of various types of surveying and reporting across all sectors of the construction industry. We have delivered detailed asset and condition surveys on individual buildings to numerous buildings located within a campus environment. We regularly undertake the following types of reports:
- Condition Survey
- Feasibility Study
- Asset Survey
- PPMP Report
- Budget Costings (Building Services)
Utility Design Assessment and Application
We have extensive experience in providing utility design for a variety of projects, from individual housing, large residential schemes, industrial units, commercial units. We provide designs and apply to the utility companies to obtain quotations for new connections, upgrades and disconnections of utilities. Our engineers are WIRS approved which means that design in-house any water connections greater than 32mm diameter which speeds up the water applications. Our experience in utility design helps with providing a smooth and speedy installation on site which can be a major risk on a lot of building projects.
Our extensive knowledge of renewable technologies, sustainability and the building regulations allows us to provide early advice on sustainability and renewables. We can provide planning statements which confirms to the planners how the project will comply in terms of energy and renewables. We can also provide Design SAP & EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) calculations for commercial and residential properties in the UK for building warrant approval and as built SAP & EPC modeling for final completion certification. We can also provide energy strategies and feasibility studies on which energy strategy or renewables would best suit each project. Our fundamental ethos is to reduce the amount of energy used by the building due to passive measures like good insulation, then make the services efficient again to reduce energy use. Finally, we would look to renewable solutions to supplement the good design. This means that our sustainable design is integrated within our services design rather than an afterthought.
Client Monitoring/Site Attendance
We provide clients with a role to help him monitor the works on site and review the contractor’s installation to ensure that they are installing the M&E systems according to the specification. In projects which are design and build, we provide a technical review of the contractor’s proposals to ensure that what they are offering is to current standards and to the required quality. During the installation works, we provide the client with peace of mind that the installation is being carried out correctly. We provide regular installation review reports on the installation or snagging reports to continually improve the installation quality so that the project does not end up with lots of defects at the end of the works. We also help on any issues that crop up on site with solutions for unforeseen problems.
