Imagine yourself in the most fabulous building in the world. Now take away the lighting, heating, ventilation, plumbing, power supplies, energy management systems, security, and safety systems. You are left in a cold, dark, uninhabitable shell. Strategic MEP design really does “bring buildings to life”.
Here at Shire Group, we design every project/building to meet the demands of the people using it. We consult with developers/architects to ensure we hold a full understanding of the requirements and strive to ensure these are met. In doing so, we ensure that a building can breathe and its occupants can relax in an environmentally sustainable, safe, and comfortable setting.
We work on all types of buildings from single domestic dwellings to large NHS run medical facilities. Each building offers a different challenge in which is met by our experienced, qualified and friendly team of engineers. Find your MEP consultant today.
HVAC is an important part of residential structures such as single family homes, apartment buildings, hotels and senior living facilities, medium to large industrial and office buildings such as skyscrapers and hospitals, vehicles such as cars, trains, airplanes, ships and submarines, and in marine environments, where safe and healthy building conditions are regulated with respect to temperature and humidity, using fresh air from outdoors.
Ventilating or ventilation (the “V” in HVAC) is the process of exchanging or replacing air in any space to provide high indoor air quality which involves temperature control, oxygen replenishment, and removal of moisture, odors, smoke, heat, dust, airborne bacteria, carbon dioxide, and other gases. Ventilation removes unpleasant smells and excessive moisture, introduces outside air, keeps interior building air circulating, and prevents stagnation of the interior air.
Electrical systems are generally associated with the lighting and power to a building.
It is the electrical engineer’s responsibility to ensure the buildings interior infrastructure can rely on the circuitry in which is feeding it power. From simple lighting circuits to complex three-phase generator design an electrical engineer is experienced in all areas.
Plumbing engineering is typical carried out in the forms of a domestic water services and above ground drainage. All of which require careful consideration to ensure relevant regulations are met and water demand / disposal is achieved.
