MEP Design

The actual design of the MEP systems is just one small part of the whole development process with many supporting services required to achieve the project goals. We have developed processes and information deliverables for each stage of the project that allow us to provide the client with a cost effective, timely and appropriate level of support as the project progresses through the various RIBA stages. Depending on what has been agreed in the Scope of Services, these may include:

RIBA Stage 1 Preparation and Brief:

Responsibility matrix and Information exchange protocols
Review of existing site
Below ground utility services maps for team use


RIBA Stage 2 Concept Design:

  • Brand Standards Review and Brand Deviation Schedule

  • Utility Capacity Requirement Calculations and Report

  • Concept Design MEP Volumetric Requirements (Plant, Risers, Primary Routes) as a Set of Coordinated Drawings

  • Draft Energy Strategy

  • Draft BREEAM Pre-Assessment

  • Stage 2 Report

RIBA Stage 3 Developed Design:

  • Utilities Quotes

  • SBEM/SAP Dynamic Simulation Modelling

  • BREEAM Pre-Assessment

  • Planning Energy Strategy Report

  • Planning Thermal Comfort/ Overheating Assessment

  • Planning Ventilation Strategy Report

RIBA Stage 4 Technical Design:

  • Planning Conditions Discharge Reports

  • Design Coordinated with Project Team

  • Building Services Specification

  • Fully Coordinated Drawing Pack by Discipline

  • Schematics and Isometrics For All Distributed Services

RIBA Stage 5 Construction:

  • Review of Specialist Subcontractor's Design Elements

  • Design Progress Monitoring

  • Technical Query / Request For Information Responses 

  • Design Reviews with Tracker

  • Interim Defects Report/Email

RIBA Stage 6 Handover and Close Out:

  • Defects Inspection Report

  • Operation and Maintenance Manual Review

  • Commissioning Witnessing and Report

  • Soft Landings Support

Throughout the project, we will provide the project manager, client and other team members with a monthly consultant report detailing the progress made, any issues arising and a look ahead at the following month's key deliverables. In addition we maintain a design risk register to assist with CDM compliance.
