OurServices

MEP engineering is the science and art of planning, designing and managing the MEP systems of a building. An MEP design company specializes in those skills. Also known as mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering consulting firms, they are important across all stages of the construction process. They assist with decision making, cost estimation, construction administration, documentation, building management, and building maintenance.

MEP systems are a building’s central nervous system. MEP systems are responsible for the “creature comfort” features of a structure. They make a building livable, healthy, and pleasant, no matter if it is a single-story home, a 50-story skyscraper, or a 300-rack data center. 

Without well-designed solutions from an MEP firm like Bowman, Foster & Associates, buildings are caves. Mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineers turn a building’s interior into the cozy, healthy, spaces we all know and enjoy.

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering focuses both on creating healthy and comfortable indoor environments for people, as well as on the generation and distribution of energy. From cooling/heating coil and fan selections, to air distribution techniques and building pressurization, we utilize modern practices to present quality designs.

From Design to Build

For architects, contractors, and building owners, an MEP consulting firm provides peace of mind. We help ensure that your project maximizes performance, minimizes cost, and provides long-term value–devising systems that properly integrate with a building’s architecture and desired performance.

Electrical Engineering

We conceptualize and develop safe, reliable, and effective electrical systems, with flexibility for growth and change – systems that sustainably support the life and usefulness of buildings into the future. Including lighting, distribution, studies and arc flash, emergency power, sustainability and energy saving, telecom, and security.

Sustainability and Energy

Sustainable design systems incorporate alternative energy and conservation technologies to improve our environment and reduce waste. We routinely perform Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) and energy modeling to evaluate ways to meet certification for LEED, Green Globes, WELL, and more.

The A/E completed a difficult project on time and with very detailed plans. The fieldwork was extremely good and complete. The system was routed to avoid extra construction work and investigated thoroughly in an effort to avoid delays. Look forward to working with the team again in the future.
Paul Cline

Project Manager, Department of Navy

In response to our request for help, your office had experts on-site providing assistance that same day and continued this support until the [failure] could be safely restored. Because of their knowledge and expertise with aging buildings and infrastructure, [your staff] were able to identify proactive actions we could take to not only safely restore the system but more importantly prevent a similar failure.
Peter O’Konski

Director of Administration, Department of Energy

Outstanding management by BFA and their subcontractors. This firm continues to be exceptionally responsive. They set the standard for professionalism as a partner and as an expert consultant. They strive hard to go the extra mile and build a cohesive project team. I give them my strongest recommendation for future projects.
Jarrod January

Contracting Officer, Department of Veterans Affairs

The A/E worked diligently with a complicated VA system to ensure that the construction documents accomplished the assigned task. The A/E interfaced existing designs with future planned designs and spoke with numerous staff members to obtain the best possible product.
