Did you know that mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) systems take most of the budget during a renovation or upgrade? Finish your project on time and within your budget with the help of a reliable electrical engineering firm.
No two electrical engineering firms are exactly alike because MEP engineering services are professional services. As firms have different engineers, the ideas and services you get will vary. Some electrical engineering firms will stick to the tried and tested traditional techniques, while others also offer better or innovative MEP solutions.
The engineers’ scope of expertise will also vary. Two MEP engineering firms may both have experienced electrical engineers, but one might have more years of experience than the other, thus making them more involved in more projects. Choosing among electrical engineers in your area can be challenging. To help you, we prepared some questions that can guide you.
Will the people who talk to you are the same people who will design and manage the project? When talking to electrical engineering firms, ask that very important question. It’s best to know if you’re talking to the project manager, lead engineer, executives, or marketing team.
This aspect is often overlooked. You share your vision with the project manager, but will he or she be actually and fully involved in the project? At New York Engineers, we maintain senior level involvement and not just supervision in all of our projects. This is why our project managers are knowledgeable of the project details, and they’re effective in their role.
Electrical engineering firms can easily say they have a quality management process in place. It’s still best to ask for the details. What are the stages of the quality assurance processes and in what stage of the project does quality control start?
At New York Engineers, we take quality control seriously and it starts with the proposal. It’s how we are able to give our clients a guarantee that there will be no design changes caused by design errors. We make sure that we provide our clients with clear, easily priced, and well-built designs. Talk to us if you want to learn more about our quality control procedure.
It’s best to ask for references, both for contractors and past clients. By calling contractors that have used the firm’s drawings, you’ll know whether the work was built as designed. Repeat clients are a good sign. Repeat clients that use only the engineering firm for all MEP engineering work is even better.
