Building Services Engineering

Robust experience. Multi-discipline talent. Integration that elevates.

Traditionally referred to as ‘MEP’ engineering, our approach moves beyond individual engineering disciplines to a holistic methodology. We combine our expertise in mechanical, electrical, fire protection and technology systems to create spaces uniquely integrated with the architecture and surrounding environment.

On every project, our team uses advanced analysis and Building Information Modeling (BIM) to develop intelligent, integrated and coordinated solutions that are efficient, sustainable, and practical. Whether working with our architects or on our own, our approach to every challenge is the same. We listen to our clients, exchange ideas, study and develop thoughtful solutions considering financial and sustainable outcomes, and then execute.
