Mechanical and electrical consultants in Manchester

Manchester commercial properties are enjoying a renaissance. The city has become a top property investment location, both for domestic and overseas investors.

As mechanical and electrical consultants in Manchester, Robert Whetham Associates has seen the city ride the storm of investment challenges. In recent years, however, we have been proud to be involved in some ground-breaking commercial projects that have helped turn the tide in Manchester.

Our expertise lies in bespoke interior refurbishment across sectors such as education, healthcare and emergency services.

Benefits of mechanical and electrical focussed refurbishment



We are called upon as mechanical and electrical consultants for Manchester build projects due to our reputation for problem-solving. This is a primary benefit of bespoke interior refurbishment. We can unpick any problems with mechanical and electrical components at crucial moments of design or installation and implement strategies to overcome them.


Custom-made design

Mechanical and electrical work covers fundamental installations such as power, lighting, heating, water services, ventilation, data comms, access control and more. For these services, there is no one-size-fits-all design, particularly for the diversity of buildings found across Manchester.

The benefit of bespoke interior refurbishment is that we can consider the use of the building, the structure and the overall interior design to come up with unique, practical mechanical and electrical installations that will maximise the building’s comfort and functionality for its occupants.



Bespoke interior refurbishment can future-proof a building by integrating options for expansion or the reconfiguring of space. By designing mechanical and electrical services to be easily modified, including how they run throughout the building, we give the occupants cost-effective options if they need to make changes. This can prove to be a hugely valuable benefit of bespoke interior refurbishment to clients.

What is commissioning, and why is it important in M&E consultancy?


Commissioning is the process of ensuring that a building’s mechanical and electrical systems are properly designed, installed, and functioning. It entails a series of tests, inspections, and documentation reviews to ensure that the systems are working properly and meeting performance standards. Commissioning is essential for ensuring that the building is safe, comfortable, and energy-efficient, and that it will operate consistently throughout its life.


What is energy modelling, and why is it important?


The process of simulating a building’s energy performance using computer software is known as energy modelling. Energy modelling can aid in the enhancement of mechanical and electrical systems as well as the identification of opportunities for energy savings. It can also be used to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of various energy efficiency measures and to assess the impact of design decisions on energy performance. Energy modelling is critical for ensuring that buildings are designed to be energy-efficient and sustainable, lowering operating costs and improving environmental performance.
