Having been endorsed by leading qualifications with organisations such as Construction Line, SMAS and ECA, we deliver dependable and cost-efficient solutions over the long term. Flexibility is critical for modern classroom layouts, yet the electrical and mechanical systems must also operate efficiently and drive sustainability. We can provide value-added specialisms, environmental impact, communications, lighting, drainage and ventilation, giving local authorities, architects, project managers and contractors practical solutions they can count on.

Quality mechanical & electrical design engineering solutions in education

Our goal is to identify the best solution for each scenario, looking at each building’s challenges, risks, safety requirements and sustainability goals.

Building information modelling (BIM) is at the heart of our Building Services Design processes. By working collaboratively with our clients in the education sector and sharing concise concepts from the outset, we minimise downtime and avoid costly last minute changes that hinder long-term performance. EMEC’s experienced engineering specialists know what makes a school, college, nursery or university campus tick. We can quickly understand the physics of a building and design solutions to making them user friendly, more sustainable and comfortable for educators and pupils.
