Mechanical engineering systems such as heating, cooling, air conditioning and ventilation create the optimum conditions for people and processes. GEMAC recommends and designs the systems using the most appropriate technology to achieve optimum conditions. Water, electricity, air steam and gas are all mediums used to create these conditions, but whatever system is utilized it must be co-ordinated to blend in with the overall design concept of the building.
Lighting is often the most visually identifiable engineering system but this is only one of numerous critical systems that ensure buildings operate to suit occupiers and user’s needs. High and low voltage power distribution, earthing systems, lighting protection and security all require experienced consideration. Highly specialist areas including the generation of essential and uninterrupted power supplies are now more commonplace in the design process.
Public Health Engineering
In any building, health and hygiene systems are an often unnoticed, yet an integral part of the structure. Designs must ensure that drinking and cold water is supplied safely, installed correctly and hot water systems, essential for hygiene are available. The efficient removal of foul water and sewage is equally important to the welfare of occupants as is the drainage of rainwater and surface water in order to protect the building fabric. GEMAC consider all these factors in the design process.
Life Safety Systems
Life safety systems design takes an integrated approach to the protection of building occupants. Critical life safety systems must include early warning systems to enable speedy evacuation and will include emergency lighting, fire detection alarm, smoke control systems and fire suppression systems, such as water sprinkler or gas extinguishers.
