Is responsible for the design, installation, operation and monitoring of the mechanical, electrical, public health/plumbing and fire safety systems required for safe, comfortable and environmentally friendly operation of modern buildings known as MEPF

  • Mechanical Design
  • Electrical Design
  • Public Health Design
  • Fire Safety Design and Consulting
  • Infrastructural
  • Mechanical Design

    Design heating, ventilating, air conditioning, exhaust, heat recovery, outside air pretreatment & dehumidification, central chillers, central heating, temperature controls and energy recovery systems in compliance with international standards such as ASHRAE, European codes, British standards as well as local.

     

  • Electrical Design

    Design entire power distribution of high and low voltage, uninterruptible power supply (UPS), emergency backup power generators, cogeneration, lightning protection, interior & exterior lighting, sports lighting, presence light detector and dimming systems in connection and coordination with all other building system designs requiring electrical power.

  • Public Health Design

    Limiting water consumption and distribution losses has an important impact on the ecological footprint of the building. Our specialists are experienced in the various sub-domains such as water distribution, legionella control, rainwater recovery, water treatment and pumping.

  • Fire Safety Design and Consulting

    Design fire safety systems including early fire detection, suppression, wet & dry control/extinguishing systems, sprinklers, fire pump designs, and smoke evacuation systems utilizing CFD model simulations.

  • Infrastructural

    To achieve intricate architectural modern structures, a great deal of creativity from the structural engineer is required to ensure the design can support and resist both static and dynamic loads they are subjected to.

sustainable engineering consulting

In addition, the consulting division offers specialized studies and advise in the context of sustainability and building physics. Including feasibility studies, energy performance reporting and various simulations and advice on comfort, energy, condensation problems, cold bridges, daylight, etc.

  • CFD Modeling
  • Building certification
  • EPBD Reporting
  • Building physics
  • Dynamic building simulations
  • Daylight & Artificial Light Simulations
  • Wind simulations
  • Certification
  • Other Sustainable Services
  • Energy Audits
  • CFD Modeling

    Applying engineering simulations programs, is an effective way to evaluate virtual testing accurately and cost effectively. CFD modeling is used to simulate fire and smoke propagation, and help develop systems that prevent and contain fires. Projects benefit from the multidisciplinary functions of the simulation software including studying renewable resources such as wind and solar energy as well as energy reduction and efficiency.

  • Building certification
  • EPBD Reporting

    The epbd (energy performance of buildings directive) method of reporting is increasingly important and continues to play a larger role in the construction process. Utilizing the official software, we provide advice and support in the design or renovation of buildings. We closely monitor any changes in building regulations and legislations. This information is transferred into the program so that simulations of the building details can be improved upon where necessary.

  • Building physics

    The ever increasing focus on energy saving measures demands attention to a more methodical construction process approach and workmanship.To avoid oversights and potential problems, we highlight the energy concerns and irregularities and provide solutions relating to the cold bridges of the building envelope, natural ventilation and the like.

  • Dynamic building simulations

    Utilizing dynamic simulation programs, it is possible to maintain and measure the quality of comfort in spaces but also determine the energy efficiency generated by a specific technology or application.

  • Daylight & Artificial Light Simulations

    The intensity, uniformity, and colour rendering of indoor lighting is crucial for the safety and well-being of occupants. This simulation tool contributes significantly in reducing the need for artificial lighting, optimizing daylight harvesting without unwanted solar gains and achieving significant energy savings when utilized wisely.

  • Wind simulations

    Wind simulation programs are used to visualize airflow conditions and to understand their impacts. They provide natural ventilation assessments for specific buildings and they can also determine the wind effects in urban districts.

  • Certification

    In addition to EPBD regulations and assessment calculation of E-levels & K-levels, we focus further on more holistic ecological performance labels. This includes BREEAM, Passive House Certification and Living Building Challenge.

  • Other Sustainable Services
  • Energy Audits

    An energy audit determines the prevailing energy flows in a building, thus identifying opportunities to reduce energy consumption and expenses of new or existing buildings without negatively impacting the comfort level of the inhabitants.

research & development

Involvement and cooperation in scientific research is of utmost importance in determining the best energy efficient solutions for buildings. Research participation must aim for realistic, reusable and financially viable technologies. Together with various universities and agencies we are involved in national and international research programs, supporting the company’s priority of integrating new research and innovations with the necessary essential follow up for our projects. Once these innovations are implemented we continue to collect performance data. We participate in scientific research when it is in line with our vision and mission, both in content and concept.

  • Smart city approach
  • Thermal grids
  • Geothermal applications
  • NZEB/ZEB
  • Smart city approach

    Europe’s model for Smart Cities and communities integrates cities, industry and its local inhabitants to improve urban life by practicing more sustainable integrated solutions. The participatory approach includes better planning, applied innovation, transportation solutions applied, higher energy efficiency reducing carbon footprint and intelligent ICT applications.

  • Thermal grids

    Thermal Grids can play an important role for the future of Smart Cities by ensuring a reliable and affordable heating and cooling supply to various users/inhabitants utilizing low-carbon and renewable energy sources like waste heat, solar energy, biomass, geothermal energy and waste-to-energy applications.

  • Geothermal applications

    Geothermal energy is clean, sustainable, energy efficient and cost effective. Geothermal heat pumps are significantly energy efficient compared to conventional heating systems. Since they draw heat from the ground in the winter and the reverse in the summer it is possible to take advantage of this resource to heat and cool buildings.

  • NZEB/ZEB

    The total amount of energy used by a NZEB in a year is roughly equal to the amount of renewable energy sources available or created on the site often provided by a smart thermal grid system, solar and wind power.
    *NZEB: Net Zero Energy Buildings
    *ZEB: Zero Energy Buildings
