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.
