M&E installations in general
Electrical and mechanical installations are necessary in any Industrial and commercial property and must be performed by knowledgeable engineers due to the complexity and bespoke nature of the systems. M&E installations need to be planned effectively in order for the infrastructure at the heart of the business to be reliable, safe, efficient and cost effective. They should also be in line with the company’s current and future requirements.
The project management team in any M&E installation will need to be on hand throughout the planning, installation and testing stages and will also be able to provide insight in to the maintenance requirements of the systems.
Typical M&E installations
• Air conditioning
• Boilers and heating systems
• Ventilation systems
• Kitchen extract systems
• Cold rooms
• LV Plant rooms
• Distribution boards
• General small power
• Data installations
• Cabling and containment
• Battery charging bays
Having mechanical and electrical systems installed can make a commercial property run more energy efficiently. An experienced M&E installation team can help properties to achieve goals like reducing their impact on the environment and increasing efficiency. All payback periods and energy savings should be presented prior to any works going ahead.
One of the main services in many facilities management companies is the managing of mechanical and electrical maintenance. The requirements of clients are often unique and may vary from full-time on-site support to intermittent inspections and maintenance. Maintenance can include implementing a planned, preventative maintenance contract, regular repairs, fault finding and a 24-hour emergency and reactive service.
Typical mechanical and electrical maintenance services:
Emergency lighting testing, life system testing, portable appliance testing, electrical inspection and testing, gas safety and gas soundness, F gas regulations.
M&E maintenance is crucial as it can determine how the commercial property is being affected by internal environmental conditions. It is essential to provide conditions that mean a work environment is safe and efficient and contributes towards maximum performance so the organisation can function at an optimum level.
It is also important to perform regular internal audits and health and safety inspections on electrical and mechanical components to make sure that health and safety compliance requirements are being met.
With M&E maintenance it is easier to have a schedule instead of relying on emergency and reactive maintenance. Should something break down, efficiency and productivity will likely be reduced for a certain amount of time, whereas with scheduled maintenance, it is likely potential issues will be caught prior to issues occurring.
The risks of M&E installation and maintenance
Installation and maintenance staff are trained to be aware of the potential risks when performing any works. This includes risks to the property, themselves and property occupants. This includes facing situations like encountering unknown hazardous substances, dealing with unsecured structures, working at heights, engineering controls failing to work and insufficient lighting.
It is the responsibility of the staff that carry out the maintenance or repairs to understand the potential risks and therefore need to comply with procedures and method statement. If any unforeseen risks do arise, staff must immediately report the incident. An in depth risk assessment should be performed for every work activity.
