Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering design is more than componentry, it is the knowledge of the fundamental principles of physics and the ability to apply these imaginatively. Mechanical services are literally integral to the success of the internal environment of a building and essential for its people.

Through active and passive means, we adjust the perceived temperature and humidity. We ensure optimum levels of clean, fresh air. We keep data centres cool, operating theatres clean and recital halls quiet. In an emergency, our smoke extraction and life safety systems support safe evacuation. We deal with medical and industrial gases, developing bespoke, often award-winning, systems. We put as much into the design of our invisible plant rooms as we do the visible components of our integrated systems.

Technological advancement and statutory development make it critical to stay ahead, to use the best, or the next, available means. Sound engineering involves buildability, space, operation, aesthetics, acoustics, capital and recurring cost, energy efficiency and environmental quality. We consider the holistic requirements and priorities, applying mechanical engineering solutions that create comfortable buildings.
