Use of MEP Packages in Construction Designs

Wayne Schepens is co-founder of NW2 Engineers in Baltimore, Maryland. Wayne Schepens' responsibilities as principal include engineering oversight. The firm’s mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) design packages are among its core offerings.

MEP packages offer integrated design options for commercial and residential buildings. Construction consulting service companies, such as NW2 Engineers, size and figure the loads for the assignments, whether the projects involve large and tall buildings or much smaller constructions. MEP system design networks also include total drawing packages that can be used for securing the necessary construction permits.

Included with MEP packages are structural design packages, which are generally supported by consulting services. Coordinating an MEP package can present a unique challenge in construction projects, as advanced system designs must be used to implement and plan MEP configurations.

Currently, the technology used to design MEP networks must be set up to meet specific technological and business requirements. Therefore, 3D modeling is frequently used. Because of the complications of the designs, only a company that specializes in engineering and construction should be utilized for consulting work or feasibility planning studies.
