Optimize your corporate interior renovation project by working with an experienced MEP consulting engineering team.

Workplace design has a profound impact on employee satisfaction and productivity.  Corporate interior renovations offer a chance to revitalize workspaces. However, ensuring the functionality of a renovated space goes beyond aesthetics.  

MEP (Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing) consulting engineers play a pivotal role in this process. They focus on the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems that control comfort, power distribution, and essential building operations. 

By working with an MEP consultant like EBE, you can create a work environment that is not only visually appealing but also efficient, compliant, and optimized for your specific needs. Contact us to schedule an initial assessment for your MEP systems.

What Do MEP Systems Include?

MEP systems are the core infrastructure that makes a building livable. They directly impact the comfort, functionality, and energy efficiency of any workspace. Mechanical systems control heating, cooling, and ventilation for comfort and air quality. Electrical systems provide power, lighting, and support all the technology that keeps a business running. Plumbing handles clean water supply, sanitary drainage, and other essential water-related needs.  

Examples of items that typically need assessment and potential upgrades during a corporate interior renovation may include:


  • HVAC: Older air conditioning units or boilers may need replacement for efficiency and capacity. Ductwork may need resizing or re-routing to accommodate layout changes. Air quality controls might need upgrades to meet modern standards.
  • Ventilation: Adjustments for increased occupancy or specific workspace needs.


  • Power Distribution: Upgrading panels and wiring if changing layouts will increase power demands.
  • Lighting: Replacing outdated fixtures with energy-efficient LEDs, adding task lighting, or adjusting lighting controls.
  • Data & Communications: Running new network cabling, accommodating wireless access points, or providing power outlets for increased tech density.
  • Backup Systems: Assessing generator needs or uninterruptible power supplies (UPS).


  • Water Supply: Ensuring sufficient water pressure and volume to handle changes in use patterns.
  • Drainage: Assessing if new sinks, restrooms, or breakroom equipment require drain modifications.
  • Restroom Fixtures: Upgrading for water efficiency or accessibility.

The specific scope of upgrades required will depend on the age of the building, existing systems, and the extent of the renovation.

Why Work with Consulting Engineers Specializing in MEP Systems?

Corporate interior renovations are generally much more complicated than applying new paint or replacing flooring. MEP engineering consultants can assess the challenges of existing systems and find solutions that are cost-effective and adhere to current building codes.

Renovations change how a space will be used, so it’s important that the design optimizes your systems for these new needs. This might involve reconfiguring HVAC for different occupancy levels, upgrading electrical capacity for new technology, or rerouting plumbing to accommodate remodeled areas.

The first step is to assess the existing infrastructure to determine which components can be salvaged, what systems require upgrading, and where any complete replacement is needed. This comprehensive analysis is the starting point to create the most effective design going forward.

In addition, MEP engineers can promote energy efficiency in their design. They identify opportunities to integrate energy-saving technologies to help reduce long-term operating costs for your business.
