Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP)
(MEP) Refers to these aspects of building design and construction. In commercial buildings, these elements are often designed by a specialized engineering firm. MEP design is important for planning, decision making, accurate documentation, performance- and cost-estimation, construction, and operating/maintaining the resulting facilities.
As a result, engineers working in the MEP field must understand a broad range of disciplines, including dynamics, mechanics, fluids, thermodynamics, heat transfer, chemistry, electricity, and computers.
The mechanical component of MEP is an important sub-part of HVAC services. Heating, cooling, ventilation and exhaustion are all key areas to consider in the mechanical planning of a building.
A major concern for individuals planning HVAC systems is that the potency, i.e., the consumption of electricity and water. potency is optimised by dynamic the design of the system on each giant and small scales. Heat pumps and physical change cooling square measure economical alternatives to ancient systems, but they will be costlier or more durable to implement. the work of AN MEP engineer is to match these necessities and opt for the foremost appropriate style for the task.
Competent style of plumbing systems is important to forestall conflicts with alternative trades, and to avoid valuable retread or surplus provides. The scope of normal residential plumbing typically covers mains pressure potable water, heated water (in conjunction with mechanical and/or electrical engineers), sewerage, storm water, fossil fuel, and typically rain assortment and storage.
Plumbing systems conjointly service air distribution/control, and thus contribute to the mechanical a part of MEP. Plumbing for HVAC systems involves the transfer of agent, pressurized air, water, and sometimes alternative substances. Ducting for air transfer can also be take into account plumbing, however is mostly put in by totally different tradespeople.
