Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing
McGill offers mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineering services, to create reliable efficient systems for building owners. Our projects range in size and complexity, from high-rise construction, to small historic renovations. McGill has become a dependable MEP firm for local schools, in addition to colleges and universities. Our merger with Essential Systems Engineering has brought greater depth and 36 years of experience in the design of sustainable systems, such as geothermal and solar thermal systems. Our team has experience with LEED design for new construction, as well as performing energy audits on existing structures. The McGill MEP group is large enough to meet all of your construction and design needs, but still approachable and accessible, completing your design team.
Plumbing engineering plays a critical and essential role in water efficiency, site sustainability, energy, fire protection, and pollution systems of a facility. Our team understands that for design systems to be successful, the infrastructure – including the natural biospheric earth systems of recycling air, waste, and water – must be considered and respected. In coordination with other engineering facets, our plumbing engineers perform the calculations, size the equipment, and prepare the necessary plumbing design and construction documents to carry out a successful project.
Sustainability is a value we integrate into every project. Our unique methods and designs create solutions that increase efficiency and reduce impacts on the environment, while saving resources. The McGill team has a strong background in integrated design for high-performance buildings. We utilize various proven and current building system technologies, including solar systems, radiant floor heating, geothermal heat pump systems, electronic charging stations for hybrid vehicles, and more cutting-edge technologies.
Whether you need to install a new air conditioning or heating system, or replace your inefficient central mechanical plant, the McGill team brings decades of experience. We help clients identify the needs of the project, review the overall system design, research new technologies, and align viable solutions with their project goals and budgets. Our team’s experience covers a broad spectrum that includes air and heating systems, steam supply systems, energy recovery, control systems, energy management and audits, air quality and facility analysis, and more.
