WELCOME TO BEM SERVICES
Whether you are an architect, developer or facilities manager integrating all four engineering skillsets into one team provides you with EFFECTIVE and EFFICIENT designs that are fully coordinated and ready for installation. This includes detailed engineering solutions covering all aspects of civil, structural, mechanical, and electrical design.
The benefit you receive from this approach is that there are less conflicts and issues on site that can impact the delivery time and incur additional costs on the project. The integrated approach also ensures that the project sticks to the agreed programme and budget, with the added benefit of reducing stress and worry for project delivery team.
In addition, you can access extra skills and experience including advice on technical issues, site and equipment inspections and providing regulated energy assessments (EPC / SBEM calculations).
Our integrated team of engineers can offer you:
The services that our civil engineers provide include the production of below ground drainage designs, surface water drainage disposal systems incorporating SuDS, designs for access, parking areas, hard standings and pavements. Flood risk assessments and flood statements can also be provided.
Our onsite structural engineering skills cover general stability checks, identifying load paths and resolving structural configuration issues. Whilst our design skills can calculate structural steelwork, masonry, concrete and timber elements including foundations, floor slabs and lintels.
Our range of mechanical engineering design skills covers not only the traditional building services such as Air Conditioning, Heating, Water, Ventilation, Underfloor Heating, Drainage and Renewable Energy Systems, but also more specialist systems such as Compressed Air, Medical and Dental Gas Systems.
Our electrical engineering design services cover Power Distribution, Low Voltage Power, Lighting (internal and external), Fire Prevention Systems, Security / CCTV, IT / Communication, Automated Building Controls and Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS).
Why engineering teams work better when integrated together.
It is well known that a positive team ethos, with aligned values and standards creates a highly creative and productive team. Good communication and understanding between team members will also make it more efficient and effective. If the team members are co-located, having worked together before and know each other's strengths and weaknesses then this will further enhance the team output.
Factors such as being remote to each other, differing priorities and external distractions lower the team's ability to coordinate properly and thus reduce the quality of their output. If different skillsets are brough together for a single project then they don't know each other's abilities, they don't have the same priorities, and this hinders creativity and cohesion. Even telephones, emails and video meetings are barriers to communication thus slowing the team's delivery.
Years of experience, the majority of it within a military environment, have proven that bringing in a team of integrated engineers to deliver a project or design is far more efficient and effective than employing skillsets from different teams or companies. By having an aligned vision, clear priorities and proven processes an integrated team of engineers is highly effective and efficient.
