Our mechanical and electrical services


As mechanical and electrical design engineers, Robert Whetham Associates provide the following mechanical and electrical services:


Mechanical and electrical design – we design mechanical and electrical elements across all building amenities. Our practical solutions are based on the requirements of the client, the potential of the building, cohesion of services and budget and timescales, amongst other considerations.


Condition surveys – our detailed inspections establish the condition of mechanical and electrical services and determine the need for maintenance projects with costings.

Building appraisals – Robert Whetham Associates are often asked to provide building appraisals to facilitate the purchase or rental of commercial buildings.


Service checks – we provide design checks on existing mechanical and electrical services running throughout a building. We report the current status of the services so that decisions can be made on maintenance and repair.


With problem-solving at the core of our business, we have primarily worked within the education, healthcare, industrial, commercial, emergency services and rail sectors.
