The Need for Design Studio Explained
All building projects start with design. Typically from a layperson’s perspective, design is synonymous only to architects working on their blueprints in an architectural design studio. Same goes for engineers, however, but only for a different discipline and workflow.
Despite the mainstream notion that engineers are designated on-field, engineers also start implementing their design ideas in a studio – where intermingle of distinctive engineering sub-disciplines happens. At Nearby EngineersNew York Engineers, we are all specialized in our own right, but when building projects call for seamless collaboration, we bring all our sector-specific expertise to the table for your success.
And it is only fitting that mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineers brainstorm in one design studio. Rather than outsourcing the MEP engineering aspects of your building facility to different engineering firms, time-tested strategies show that efficiency and coordination is better in an all-in-one MEP firm, where clash detection of building systems can be mitigated as soon as possible.
For large-scale complex projects requiring focused coordination amongst project stakeholders, particularly with MEP engineers, clients can get more benefits in the form of time and money savings when engineering specialists are situated to work together in one design studio. Despite the curated workflows for each engineering sub-discipline, an open-floor area with specific private areas where specialized engineers can throw ideas fast and simultaneously work on their expertise emphasizes how design studio quickly moves the building project from pre-design to construction stage.
At Nearby EngineersNew York Engineers, we have anticipated this need through our proactive mentality. In fact, this is why you need our design studio for your MEP engineering projects.
MEP Engineers Create Unique Design Studio Process
Each design studio working on their building project follows a standard methodology. In our case, we follow our own path. At Nearby EngineersNew York Engineers, we develop a unique approach on our engineering design process. This is not to say that we are reinventing the wheel, because as a matter of fact, our engineers are continuously improving the standard wheel with challenging paradigms. We give you a background on how our specialized engineers implement this unique workflow in the design studio, using HVAC design as a concrete example:
In this step, we take into account the need of a heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system in your building facility, or if by any means, a passive cooling system will be much preferable.
Enter feasibility studies, where we analyze your building facility’s context, site location, sun-path orientation and every related factor that can affect your HVAC design.
Once we have evaluated the need for HVAC design in your building facility, our mechanical engineers will list the urgent items that should be addressed such as heating and cooling loads analysis.
After data gathering, we will create a zone and space schedule which will cater to your predefined requirements.
Using BIM-integrated Revit, we will design the HVAC system components such as air terminals, air handling equipment and ducting system.
Once all components are in place, our mechanical engineers will test and compare the actual airflow of your HVAC system against the planned airflow.
Based from the testing results, our mechanical engineers will verify accordingly if the HVAC system passes the quality standards, or regress to solution development for an iterative design process.
If the results meet the requirements from all stakeholders, final testing and design development will be incorporated as the HVAC system moves to approval and pre-construction stage.
As illustrated in our HVAC design example above, design process may be excruciating with all the iterations in place, but all the more that you are guaranteed with the quality output from our MEP engineers in the design studio. At Nearby EngineersNew York Engineers, we go above and beyond to exceed your expectations in the technical, cost, legal and functional aspects.
A Multidisciplinary Approach to Design Studio
Building concepts, per se, can’t be built without constructability. The fact that AEC industry comprises of architecture, engineering and construction obviously means that design, despite its lone discipline, remains a multifaceted collaborative process among project stakeholders. What makes our design studio reputable is how we approach all engineering solutions with a multidisciplinary dictum, rather than being solely rooted from an isolated design standpoint.
Our skilled MEP engineers show you how we communicate our engineering design intent to all the AEC industry specialists:
We salute architects for creating your building concepts into concrete spaces. Where we enter into the equation is when we transform your inhabitable spaces to comfortable areas complete with utilities such as power, lighting, HVAC and plumbing systems.
As MEP consultants, we coordinate our engineering design intent to the contractors by thoroughly subjecting their construction deliverables inclusive of submittals, shop drawings, methodologies and cost estimation to a professional review and approval process.
Our expert engineers implement the engineering design intent in line with the building project’s quality, time and cost control points. We take into account all factors such as site logistics, value-engineering, construction methods and project delivery.
We cross-check the fabrication sheets against our engineering plans and specifications to gauge if the design intent was interpreted correctly for quick assembly and installation of your building components off-site or on-site.
With all project stakeholders considered, tracking engineering design and construction changes can be time-consuming and labor-intensive. However, when all factors are settled as early as possible during the initial phases in the design studio, this minimizes rework and potential errors down the line, and oppositely maximizes your return on investment through increased cost savings and early project turnover. At Nearby EngineersNew York Engineers, we are rooted to give you the best value-for-money MEP engineering designs.
Industries We Serve in Design Studio
As industry-specific engineers ingrained with flexible specialties, our versatility in the design studio is certainly an asset. Building occupancies of all type come in a wide array of diverse requirements, and as we delve down deeper for in-depth details, all the more that the building projects and systems differ in their own form and function.
To say that each building is unique is an understatement. From an engineering perspective, we design your building facility with priority consideration on function, comfort, safety and structural integrity, followed by aesthetics – albeit modern engineering projects as of late factors in beauty evidently, thanks to the rise of industrial design where naked ceiling systems and exposed utilities embellish your décor.
On that note, it is noteworthy to point out that although the basic engineering design principles lie the same, each building occupancy calls for a different scheme based on its integral function as a habitable space. For example, here’s what it could mean for you: lighting and power requirements between industrial and commercial settings are very much different, as well as when the challenging mechanical requirements for a world-class hospital is compared to the lax demands for a two-storey residential setting.
Our engineers give you a clue on how versatile we can be with our list of completed projects in a nationwide and international scale:
Design Studio Gears Traction with Mechanical Engineers
The ability to turn an inefficient, warm area into a comfortable space sits at the top of criteria list for every client or building homeowner.
