MEP stands for mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering, and professionals from these technical disciplines are who design the systems that make building interiors suitable for humans. These building systems must be specified and installed properly to accomplish their purpose, and must also be serviced at regular intervals to stay under optimal operating conditions.

In a way, MEP consulting can be considered an investment - you pay for a professional service to make sure your building systems operate optimally during their service life. This yields tangible financial benefits such as lower operating costs and improved productivity, along with qualitative benefits such as improved comfort and safety for occupants. If you are developing commercial space for rent, MEP engineering consultant can also give you a competitive edge: a building that offers high-performance systems is likely to attract more tenants. For example, energy efficient heating and cooling systems are selling points in office spaces for rent.
