Mechanical and Electrical Services Design

REDS Building Services Consultants have many years of experience in designing a wide variety of traditional and innovative mechanical and electrical services within a full range of applications. This service is the backbone of REDS operation. REDS are generally appointed to provide either performance, enhanced performance or a fully detailed design service. With a performance appointment REDS would provide specifications confirming the types of systems to be installed and the criteria on which the detailed design of these services should be based. The performance specification is often produced in conjunction with room data sheets. In an enhanced performance appointment outline drawings to accompany the performance specification would be provided. These would confirm the ability to spatially integrate building services within the building. Where REDS are appointed to undertake the detailed design of the mechanical and electrical services, this would involve the full assessment of appropriate systems and the detailed design and specification of them in full coordination with all other members of the design team.

REDS use IES Virtual Environment, TAS, Revit MEP, Hevacomp and Relux software as part of the design process.

Following the design/specification service, on most appointments, REDS have the responsibility to manage the installation of the mechanical and electrical services throughout the construction phase. This includes assessment of variations, quality control and managing the handover of the completed installations to the client.
