The technical installations and mains connections form an essential element in creating a high-performance, functional building. VK Architects & Engineers offer all the M&E Engineering required within the design and implementation process. In the areas of mechanics, electricity and sanitation – and their wide range of sub-disciplines – our engineers control every aspect of a project: air-conditioning, lighting, communications and data communication, lifts, security, access control etc.
Our engineers apply their knowhow and experience to a range of projects, from care centres to office blocks and residential developments to catering projects, schools, underground car parks and public spaces. This knowledge is applied to new buildings, renovations and restorations of protected buildings and interiors.
VK also has expertise in specific applications for specific sectors. In the care and pharmaceutical sectors, our engineers design installations for medical gases, medical equipment, clean rooms, cold storage, contamination levels, overpressure etc.
In all of this, VK pleads the case for integrated design. Technical installations have a great impact on a project in terms of functionality and especially cost price. Our engineers can offer great benefits in both areas by being involved in the design process right from the start.
Our engineers’ techniques are integrated design in action, thanks to intensive consultation with our sustainability experts. This means they can suggest technical installations that perform well in all areas. Our engineers do this with dynamic calculation software in all phases of the design and implementation process.
