We are MEP building services consultants in Manchester

If you are looking for MEP building services consultants in Manchester, Robert Whetham Associates are a trusted and reliable partner for your project.

Mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) building services consultants are an important part of the building specification process in construction.

What do MEP building services consultants do?


Our mechanical and electrical design consultation services are essential to the operating efficiency of a given building, and its internal environment.

Robert Whetham Associates help businesses with pre-planning design services including mechanical and electrical systems design. For example heating, hot and cold water services, power, lighting, ventilation, data comms, access control and various other installations.

We also carry out:

– Conditions surveys

– Energy statements

– Building regulation compliance reports

– Building appraisals

– Service checks for buildings to determine the current status of a building

– Railway construction (we are one of the only few M&E contractors in the UK to be RISQS approved)


What are the benefits of MEP for your project?


MEP building services can look at ways to utilise sustainable energy for buildings, as well as helping to reduce the overall energy consumption, improve water efficiency and make sure costs are kept within budget.

The role of MEP design is important for planning, decision making, performance and cost estimation, and operating/maintaining the resulting facilities in the built environment.

Over the years, Robert Whetham Associates have built a solid reputation where our M&E services cover a wide range of industries including education, healthcare, industrial, commercial, railways, and emergency services.

Getting the best outcome for our clients is our priority, and we provide practical solutions that match the needs of the project at hand while implementing efficiencies and ensuring that building systems operate safely, and to their full potential.

Energy efficiency in construction


The UK government has announced a pledge to become a net-zero carbon economy by 2050. Reaching net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions requires extensive changes across the economy, including the construction sector and the built environment.

The built environment is responsible for around 40% of the UK’s total carbon footprint, according to the UK Green Building Council.

When it comes to reducing carbon emissions in buildings it’s important to consider the energy efficiency of buildings, as well as material selection and construction processes.

Sustainability has been a key factor when working on building projects and as MEP design consultants, we will specifically look at opportunities to improve a building’s performance.

HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) frameworks can use AI-powered technology making automated adjustments, enhancing energy efficiency while tracking human activity in rooms to better fit AC and heating levels.

Other sustainability aspects to consider are solar energy, ways to reduce water waste and reducing carbon emissions.


MEP engineers are vital in construction


MEP building services consultants play a key part in the construction process. As an MEP consultant, Robert Whetham Associates get involved in system diagnostics and the overall building evaluation.

We collaborate with architects, building owners, and other contractors over the length of a project to deliver the best possible solutions for each building and its occupants. And ensure that build projects are safe, secure and comply with the latest UK building regulations.

To obtain the greatest outcomes, we provide practical solutions that match the needs of the project at hand while implementing efficiencies and ensuring that building systems operate safely, and to their full potential.
