Mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) is a significant component of the construction supply chain. MEP design is critical for design decision-making, accurate documentation, performance and cost-estimating, construction planning, managing and operating the resulting facility. "MEP" is also called as "Architectural Engineering" in some sense. Building services engineering comprises mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and plumbing or public health (MEP) engineering, all of which are further sub-divided into the following: Communication lines, telephones and IT networks (ICT). In the architectural engineering field, the acronym MEP stands for “mechanical, electrical, and plumbing.” In particular, this refers to things like a building's heating or cooling systems, plumbing for the sinks, or electrical wiring.
As a mechanical services plumber, you have a wide range of responsibilities, which range from water production, maintaining the station heating systems and sewage to fixing the Coke machine! One of the most important jobs is the production of water which is used for drinking, heating and fire fighting.
MEP is an acronym that has been used historically to describe the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems in building and industrial projects.
