M&E design consultants Manchester
Manchester is a vibrant city with a rich history and culture. It has also been the epicentre of an ongoing wave of development in recent years.
As an M&E design consultancy, we have played important role in the numerous redevelopment and new construction projects taking place in Manchester. Our multidisciplinary approach has allowed us to work on some incredible projects including Manchester Metropolitan University, and Harter Street Apartments in Manchester City Centre.
As mechanical and electrical consultants, we are responsible for ensuring that these systems are correctly designed and installed and meet all relevant safety and performance standards.
We collaborate with architects, contractors, and other industry professionals to plan and design a project’s building systems. We also assist with construction oversight and commissioning to ensure that the systems are properly installed and operational. We can perform the following tasks for a construction project:
HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) design
M&E consultants help ensure that the building’s HVAC system is properly sized and designed to provide comfortable indoor temperatures and good indoor air quality.
Lighting and electrical design
We design electrical systems that are safe, efficient, and meet the specific lighting needs of the building.
Plumbing and fire protection design
The design of plumbing and fire protection systems that are safe and meet code requirements.
Identifying opportunities to improve the energy efficiency of the building, such as using efficient lighting and HVAC systems.
Building code compliance
Ensure that the building design complies with all relevant building codes and safety regulations.
Coordination and integration
Assuring optimal performance, conflict avoidance, and well-coordinated and integrated operation of all systems.
Improving Design and Innovation
Problem-solving, and improving design and innovation are some of the main roles of an M&E consultancy. Our team has provided extensive industry knowledge and hands-on project experience for two decades to a diverse range of clients in education, healthcare, industrial, commercial, and emergency services. We are also RISQS (Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme) certified, demonstrating our dedication to the railway industry and our commitment to providing high-quality service.
We pioneer innovation in the design of a building’s mechanical and electrical services using a net zero approach. A recent project involving Crewe fire station is just one of the low-carbon projects for emergency services for which we recently offered our expertise.
RWA implemented passive design strategies to lower building emission rates, lower the need for space heating, and increase annual solar gains (heat increases from absorbed solar radiation). This guarantees that fabric heat losses are kept to a minimum, that good natural daylight levels are attained, and that solar gains are utilised during the autumn and winter months.
