Building Engineering Services

Our Building Engineering Services team offers expertise and advice in all the technical areas of a building, as well as those related to the comfort and health of users (air quality, temperature etc.) for all types of buildings across all sectors, during all phases of construction, development and use.

Building Engineering Services elements can account for 35-45% of the total construction cost of a typical new-build office project, and up to 50% of the cost of a typical office fit-out. To ensure that these costs are carefully managed, it is crucial to give early consideration to these elements.

How can we help

We always act in the interest of our clients, their teams and respect for the environment. We have great faith in teamwork. We don’t just address the technical requirements. To obtain the best results, we partner with you and our project team from the very earliest stages of the project. Understanding your needs makes it possible for us to exceed your expectations and encourages creative and original thinking within our teams.

Our specialists are able to offer their advice and/or manage all works related to Building Engineering Services. This approach allows you to make adjustments early in the design phase and thus quickly resolve any problem that may arise in an existing building. This is also the way to avoid rising costs and preserve the value of your asset.

Adding value – the advantages of our Approach

Putting the elements of building engineering into perspective in the context of the life cycle of your property enables us to gain better insight into it and thus to optimise its value. Our engineers are not only capable of complex design solutions, they are also experienced in undertaking technical due diligence and dilapidations, which makes it possible to evaluate the scope of the works and to integrate possible deterioration and rehabilitation factors into the preliminary inspection phases.

We understand the importance of maintenance of the Building Engineering Services plant and therefore make sure that sufficient attention is given to plant access and replacement, enabling satisfactory planned maintenance through thoughtful design and coordination with our design team partners.

We design sustainable projects from the initial phase in close collaboration with our Energy and Sustainability teams in order to create a project that is as efficient as possible while limiting the carbon footprint.

Experience & Resources

The Building Engineering Department plays a crucial role in Project & Development Services, complementing our building consultancy, project management, interior design and cost consultancy services.

Our professionals come from diverse backgrounds in large engineering consultancy companies and construction organisations; they have excellent insight and the competencies that are invaluable in their role. We also have an engineering graduate programme that gives new engineers the opportunity to learn engineering within a real estate environment.
