Building Services Engineering

Our Building Engineering Services team can provide all design and management services relating to the mechanical, electrical and public health elements within all building types, across all sectors during initial construction, fit-out and occupancy stages.

Our Building Engineering Services team can provide all design and management services relating to the mechanical, electrical and public health elements within all building types, across all sectors during initial construction, fit-out and occupancy stages.

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’s crucial that early consideration be given to these elements.

How can we help

We’re serious about the responsibility we feel towards our clients, staff and the environment. We are strong believers in collaboration. We’re not just about pipes and wires, and we know that the best results come from partnering with you and our project team colleagues from the very earliest stages. Because we understand your needs we work to exceed them by encouraging creative and original thinking within our teams.

Our team can provide advice and/or undertake all works surrounding the Building Services Engineering elements. This ensures that buildings can be future proofed right from the concept stage so that any issues that arise in existing buildings can be remedied early. This also means you can avoid rising costs and preserve the asset value.

Adding value – the advantages of our Approach

Because we understand Building Engineering Services in the context of the whole property lifecycle, we’re able to add value through our insight. Our engineers are not only capable of complex design solutions but are also experienced in undertaking technical due diligence and dilapidations, ensuring that designs recognise the importance of potential alteration and reinstatement.

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

Our projects build in sustainability from the outset and we work closely with our Energy and Sustainability colleagues to ensure that our designs are as efficient and low carbon as possible.
