Building Design, Technology and Management

The Past , Present and the Future - Always Unique

We understand buildings. Building technology and facility management are two of our core competences – we provide everything from a single source.

In the planning, development, construction, commissioning and operation of a building, we consider every single detail. Tailored to the building’s size, usage, operating times, thermal comfort requirements and climatic conditions. And accompanied by all technical facility management duties as well as service and maintenance throughout the entire life.

Electrical Engineering

Whether a large- or small-scale system – every electrical system must be energy efficient, permanently available and safe. Our solutions and services range from planning through commissioning and installation to maintenance and repair.

Our Electrical Engineering Consulting service range for buildings spans from:

  • HT, MV, LV and ELV systems
  • Lighting technology
  • Comprehensive cabling solutions
  • Controls

Whatever your needs, you can count on our planning expertise and the foresight of a long-established generalist. For every installation we take the entire life cycle into consideration:

  • Comprehensive advice from the initial planning phase
  • Advice on selecting installation components
  • Professional system integration
  • Efficient, cooperative construction site management
  • Cost-effective, high-tech assembly and installation
  • Service contracts and annual maintenance agreements for your electrical
  • systems (outsourcing)
  • Commissioning/start-up
  • Training for your staff
  • System handover

Building Audits

Building Audits provide in-depth analysis of a building’s capacity to support current and future needs when you need to carry out cost reduction or purchase a building and need to uncover hidden costs. With this service, you will:

  1. Know the Real Value of the Building and Prevent future un-planned Capex Catastrophes
  2. Be able to Bring Systems back to its proper operational state and Increase Equipment Life
  3. Be able to Boost Tenant Satisfaction and Reduce Complaints
  4. Be able to Reduce Energy and Demand Costs and Improve Indoor Air Quality
  5. Enhance Facility Operation and Maintenance and Conform to latest Building Guidelines

The process is to audit the Systems (Core & Shell and Energy), Procedures and Utilities – Core & Shell Systems are Façade, Substructure and Superstructure, and the main Energy Systems are HVAC&R, Electrical, BMS, Fire Protection and Plumbing

Operations and Maintenance Procedures are also audited and these are based on history of Repair, Preventive Maintenance, Systems Documentation and Scheduling and for Operational Cost Reduction, Energy, Water and Waste Audits are conducted

Finally , a ‘snapshot’ of the actual condition of the building, propose remedial measures, highlight further tests and analyses required and calculate the cost to return the building to its original intended operating condition or convert it to a more superior building.
