MEP Engineering Services, What is MEP/FP Engineering

What Is MEP/FP Engineering?

MEP/FP Engineering is very basically Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Fire Protection Engineering. MEP/FP design is important for planning, decision making, accurate documentation, performance- and cost-estimation, construction, and operating/maintaining the resulting facilities.

MEP specifically encompasses the in-depth design and selection of these systems, as opposed to a tradesperson simply installing equipment. For example, a plumber may select and install a commercial hot water system based on common practice and regulatory codes. A team of MEP engineers will research the best design according to the principles of engineering, and supply installers with the specifications they develop. 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.

Mechanical Engineering

KEA Engineers offers a full range of mechanical engineering services including heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and energy simulations including cost benefit analysis. We have over 37 years of experience in the design of mechanical systems for buildings ranging from small retail storefront projects to 600,000 square foot multi-use institutional buildings. Each project is approached in a systematic way to ensure all requirements are met, and in conformance with latest industry standards. It is our goal to provide a design that meets the needs of the client from the perspective of cost, schedule, flexibility and energy efficiency.

Basic mechanical engineering services include:

  • heating, cooling and ventilation
  • load calculations
  • air conditioning unit selections
  • air distribution ductwork designs
  • central chilled water, condenser water, hot water and steam plant design.

Our testing division provides review and analysis of existing system performance and provides recommendations for improving system performance and efficiency. Systems that can be analyzed and evaluated include, but are not limited to, chilled water distribution, condenser water, hot water, steam, and air conditioning systems including both air cooled and water cooled configurations.
