MEP Engineering


Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing

While there are many factors that contribute to making facilities efficient and reliable, we understand that none are as important as the complex, interdependent systems working behind the scenes. Our MEP engineers specialize in designing new and replacement systems as well as evaluating and upgrading existing systems using the latest technology and sustainable design practices for high-performance buildings.

From lighting and illumination to HVAC systems, our teams design holistic solutions that affect every part of your building or facility. We design data and communications networks, security solutions, and thermal and electrical distribution systems for healthcare, education, public, and government facilities. Our teams also specialize in designing life safety systems for critical facilities such as emergency power, access and security, and fire protection and detection.
