MEP refers to Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing systems for buildings.

People in urban settings spend between 80% and 90% of their time in indoor spaces both during work and during leisure time. The aesthetics, efficiency, economy, comfort, and safety of modern buildings require close collaboration across multiple disciplines.

With the emerging trend of high-rise buildings and emphasis on sustainability, MEP systems are becoming increasingly complex and occupying larger portions of building project work. The MEP design no longer relates only to the visible elements such as lights, radiators, convectors, registers, outlet grilles, or ducts - which are the end nodes of the systems - but also to the infrastructure that supplies those elements.

Although the primary responsibility of delivering high quality building projects rests with the lead architect, the knowledge and expertise of the MEP engineers play a very important role in supporting the architect’s vision.
