Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) Design
Mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) systems are core components of building design. Not only do these systems need to deliver reliable performance individually, but they must also work together seamlessly to ensure overall building efficiency.
While many contractors focus individually on mechanical, electrical or plumbing systems, few take a big-picture, holistic view. Working with a company with a breadth of expertise helps ensure that any new building or retrofit project will go smoothly.
Mechanical Design Engineering
Mechanical design engineering encompasses a building’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, as well as any elevators, escalators or related infrastructure. In a large facility, these systems can account for a significant portion of ongoing utility use and power costs. As a result, it’s critical to ensure all appliances are running efficiently, without sacrificing occupant comfort or convenience.
Reynolds provides a variety of mechanical design engineering services, from planning and sourcing equipment to testing and maintenance.
Electrical Design Engineering
Reliable electrical systems are essential to a facility’s proper operation. Some aspects of this include power and wiring, emergency power distribution, lighting control, public address systems and more. The larger and more complex a facility is, the more specific its requirements for electrical system design and engineering will be.
Reynolds provides complete turnkey electrical service for K-12 and higher education campuses, government complexes and other properties. We can also retrofit aging buildings with newer, more efficient systems.
Plumbing System Commissioning
Plumbing systems must meet highly specific criteria for temperature, flow rates, pressure and other factors. This is especially important in complex commercial and institutional facilities, where conserving water is a priority.
Our team includes experienced technicians who can assist with plumbing system design and engineering, water efficiency evaluations, preventative maintenance and more.
Other Aspects of MEP Design
Other systems that fall under the broader umbrella of mechanical, electrical and plumbing design include fire protection, alarm systems and telecommunications infrastructure. Each of these systems can play an integral part in an overall building plan. Reynolds offers system engineering for new construction in addition to retrofit assistance for renovations in older buildings for all MEP systems.
One benefit of working with Reynolds is our broad expertise. With more than two decades of experience, we have a strong team of engineers and industry professionals in-house, allowing us to provide services directly to our clients. We can design systems that integrate from the ground up which helps avoid downtime, saves on maintenance and repair costs, and makes it easier to upgrade when technology changes.
Another advantage of working with our team is our experience in across different industries. Our core markets include education, healthcare, government and industry — though we are fully equipped to take on projects for organizations in any industry.
A forward-thinking company, we help our clients find solutions that meet their current and future needs, at a price that works for their budget. Reynolds has offices in Harrisburg, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, allowing us to provide commissioning and engineering services for clients throughout Pennsylvania and the region.
