Sustainability, efficiency and Design to Value are at the heart of our Mechanical Electrical and Public Health team’s approach to design. Integration with all other Bryden Wood disciplines, close collaboration with clients and a deep commitment to exceptional design come together to push the boundaries of what is possible with building service design.

We are a diverse, multinational team working across three offices in two countries. We are creative and enthusiastic engineers who love what we do. Our broad sector experience stretches from multi-mega-watt data centres, to award-winning residential schemes, to industry-leading commercial developments and complex pharmaceutical facility design and refurbishments. We adapt to every project to find the best solution.

Making the complex accessible - with digital

3D BIM Modelling is at the heart of our work. Every member of the team develops and designs using digital tools. With Bryden Wood’s Creative Technologies team developing these tools in-house we can do more digitally, more quickly than ever before. Developing models into powerful visualisations to communicate our designs effectively is a core competence.

We succeed only when our clients succeed. Everything we do starts with listening and understanding your value drivers and what you want to achieve from your asset.

When it’s limited to inaccessible mediums, schematics and schedules, Mechanical and Electrical engineering innovation is difficult to understand. We focus on communicating our designs through accessible language, so everything is understood by everyone.

A blend of experience and collaboration

Iteration is everything for us, improving through learning. We test, evaluate and improve everything we do because we are driven by the prospect of the best idea. We never settle for mediocrity.

Our unique experience across a range of sectors enables us to bring an optimum blend of best design practice to every project. The ability to cross-fertilise our knowledge with experience from every project we work on is invaluable to our clients. Whether it is the electrical power infrastructure efficiency from data centres or the most spatially efficient ventilation design from hospitals, our clients benefit from the value created from other projects as we integrate this into their asset.

We work hand in hand with contractors, integrating their construction expertise with our technical skills to eliminate the need for redesign and contractor re-work as our designs progress into construction phase.

Delivering value at every stage

Our expertise was born in off-site engineering for airports and mission-critical data centre facilities. Developing designs for factory assembly and airside installation was not just a bonus but a necessity in such complex construction environments. Pharmaceutical facility and hospital design gave us expertise in dense system integration where complex ventilation design forms the heart of the facility.

Everywhere we work, driving standardisation is a key capability we leverage to provide value for our clients. Our Platform approach has successfully delivered value by curtailing costs and shortening schedule.
