How MEP Engineering Design Services Can Help You Achieve Sustainable Goals

mep engineering design services KMB

Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing Services are a vital part of commercial and industrial structures. Traditionally, MEP engineering design services have focused on implementing proper compliance-based processes. Today, however, as the demands for more sustainable building practices increase, MEP engineers increasingly focus on creating environmentally-friendly designs for clients.

More than ever before, sustainability has become the focus for MEP engineering design services to optimize resources and reduce waste in new commercial construction projects.

Sustainable Practices for MEP Engineering Design Services

The concept of sustainability for MEP starts right from the design and heavily depends upon client goals. This can include:

  • Carefully evaluating materials
  • Properly selecting high-performance equipment
  • Meticulously managing construction site processes
  • Minimizing energy consumption
  • Maximizing energy efficiency
  • Tailoring design to site specific features such as orientation, available resources, light sources, and other location-based details

 

For example, a mixed use and retail development center may be focused on harnessing energy from simple methods such as daylighting. A hospital structure may have the goal of becoming LEED certified and minimizing their carbon footprint through geothermal heating and cooling systems.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, in the United States alone, buildings account for almost 40 percent of national CO2 emissions and out-consume both the industrial and transportation sectors. LEED-certified buildings have 34 percent lower CO2 emissions, consume 25 percent less energy and 11 percent less water, and have diverted more than 80 million tons of waste from landfills.

Savvy organizations are responding to these cost savings and environmental benefits at a dramatic rate.
