Importance of MEP in architecture.
Mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) refers to these aspects of building design and construction.
MEP design is important for planning, decision making, accurate documentation, performance and cost-estimation, construction, and operating/maintaining the resulting facilities.
MEP specifically encompasses the in-depth design and selection of these systems, as opposed to a tradesperson simply installing equipment.
Many Architect / Design consultant including the client focus more on aesthetics rather than on MEP design. However MEP is the backbone for any project.
