Mechanical & Electrical Engineering
Our focus is always to design functional systems that are cost-effective and easily maintained while promoting comfort, health and productivity.
Mechanical and electrical engineering as an integral part of a design team enhances building performance, reduces risk and lowers operational and capital costs. This is why at One, our building services engineers work alongside all other disciplines ultimately saving our clients time and money.
Low energy and low carbon targets mean that no architect should design a building without a building services engineer by their side. Our design skills yield ‘low-carbon buildings’ using renewable technology and highly energy efficient building services systems. Our engineers, however, recognise that passive design and natural technology are fundamental to energy conservation.
We utilise energy modelling, weather data, orientation, construction techniques and natural elements in an effort to reduce energy consumption. This provides many benefits to occupants reducing the need for artificial lighting and lowering mechanical heating and cooling requirements. Our engineers will also advise on the best positioning of windows and rooflights, along with systems to control heat and glare, for the best possible conditions.
We can provide lifecycle analysis and payback advice on a wide range of available renewable and low carbon technologies, whilst also providing advice on the government’s current renewable heat incentives and feed in tariffs.
You know with One, that we will give you the best possible advice.
The One building services team includes mechanical and electrical engineers with practical experience of systems in use. The Building Services team are BIM AP accredited and use the latest industry standard technology. This ensures that high level integration with other disciplines happens from the outset of the project, resulting in optimum building performance.
The team analyse computer simulation of the thermal performance of buildings (Thermal Modelling) and registered Low Carbon Energy Assessment, Low Carbon Consultancy and environmental assessment against the UK BREEAM standards to make sure that the design is as efficient as it possibly can be.Back To Services
