Services Overview

MEP Expertise

In-house MEP (Mechanical-Electrical-Plumbing) Specialists:

LEFTFIELD has several highly experienced MEP experts on staff that provide tremendous value to our clients as our goal is to maximize the useful life of all major MEP equipment while minimizing the energy costs to the Owner.

One of the more complicated facets of a new building project – both from a construction perspective and from an operational and maintenance perspective – is the MEP component of the project. With this in mind, our staff provides the following:

  • Review of the design drawings. Our MEP experts review the drawings from a user perspective. Is the equipment located in areas of the building that are accessible? Can the equipment be readily maintained? Are the systems over designed or over engineered? Can they be simplified?
  • Daily observation during the MEP installation. Our team provides a deficiency list of items that were documented during their observations. We often wonder what would have happened if the ceilings were installed to cover up the items that we identified as deficiencies. Our proactive approach saves many problems from occurring down the road when the warranty has expired.
  • We oversee the Commissioning scope. All too often, we find that the Commissioning agent does not provide the full set of services as outlined in the specifications. We oversee the entire process to ensure that the Owner receives full value.
  • We assist in the setup of proper preventative maintenance for a facility’s equipment. We have been retained on a number of campuses to develop a PM process using both in house and third party resources to ensure all major equipment is being properly maintained. Our focus is on preventative maintenance rather than reactive maintenance.
  • We provide retro-commissioning services as well as field audits of existing major MEP equipment for many Owners.
