The Three Primary Benefits of MEP Consultants
Every project, both new and renovations gain significant and unique value via MEP expertise but have three overarching benefits in common – lower project cost, long-term cost savings from energy/operational efficiencies, and reduced project risks.
- Project costs are reduced by eliminating redundancies when integrated systems are designed from the beginning to be synergistic. This is all-encompassing across the major systems of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), lighting, and plumbing. Fully integrated designs help owners achieve optimal building performance while maintaining the highest level of safety and comfort.
- Achieve customized and optimized energy-efficient designs through energy modeling and virtual simulation. MEP consultants use specialized skills and tools to understand the current energy consumption, make predictions on future consumption, and optimize designs to maximize efficiencies. Today, wonderful new opportunities exist with high-efficiency HVAC equipment, lighting retro-fits, LEED designs, photovoltaics, or other resource-efficient and eco-friendly designs.
- Reduced project risk is achieved in many ways including cost controls and fast turnaround. Without MEP involvement, isolated system designs cause delays, inflated costs, and lower performance when operational problems are encountered that would have otherwise been avoided altogether or caught and resolved during the design phase of the project.
The MEP consultants are just as important as the architect or contractor that you select. K2D MEP consultants are your best choice to evaluate current systems and find cost-effective improvements or replacement systems. Whether the upgrades are voluntary or mandatory, building code changes will be involved. K2D MEP consultants are always up to date with current building codes. They know what can wisely be grandfathered into an existing upgrade and how to incorporate new technology into existing infrastructure. Your benefits are substantial and quantifiable with lower operating costs, improved productivity, along with more comfort and safety for occupants.
