Ramboll’s passionate building services team is dedicated to creating sustainable built environments where people and communities thrive. 

Advanced MEP expertise 

Our Mechanical, Electrical and Public Health Engineering specialists draw on the most qualified multidisciplinary expertise from across Ramboll’s global network to deliver a complete and integrated service. This approach enables us to overcome highly complex technical challenges and provide clients with innovative, sustainable and best practice solutions.  

Our engineers strive to add value throughout the project life cycle from preliminary studies, determination of user requirements and design conditions, to handover of the completed building. 

Using the latest digital design software and methods we offer: 

  • Advisory services 
  • Design management
  • Planning, analyses and programming
  • Integration
  • Project administration and project management
  • Technical construction management
  • Validation and verification
  • Status control
  • Facility management
  • Post occupancy evaluation
  • Technical due diligence
  • Field studies

Mechanical Engineering

Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC, or climate control) and climate technology is important to people’s well-being and health. 

From the outset of the project, we work closely with our building physics team to influence the shape and form of the building. Getting this right at the initial phase of a project can help to reduce energy consumption, whilst ensuring that indoor climate creates an excellent internal environment. Ramboll’s skills and design approach helps to reduce sickness and improve productivity. 

In addition to the traditional mechanical services disciplines, we are skilled in special areas such as indoor climate, environmental design, integrated building design, building physics, simulations, BMS/building automation and mechanical refrigeration. 

Ramboll Mechanical services cover: 

  • Heating systems
  • Ventilation systems 
  • Air conditioning
  • Exterior HVAC systems
  • Gas and air pressure
  • Sanitary systems
  • Water systems
  • Fire protection systems
  • Smoke control systems
  • Controls
  • Automation 

Electrical engineering 

We are increasingly dependent on well-functioning electrical, IT and telecom systems. Malfunctions can have serious safety and economic consequences. Such systems must be designed to avoid disruptions and minimise risk. 

Ramboll’s electrical engineers assess individual project requirements and propose tailored technical solutions to optimise operational reliability and cost effectiveness. Whether it be a large regional hospital or a data centre, we have the skills and expertise to ensure that resilient electrical services are provided for the successful operation of a building. 

We have expertise in the following electrical systems: 

  • High voltage 
  • Low voltage 
  • Emergency power 
  • Generator
  • Building battery
  • Earthing and lightning protection
  • Fire Detection 
  • Security and access control 
  • IT and communication networks 
  • Elevators
  • Process systems such as MCC switchgears, automation cabinets and PLC systems 

We also lead the field in single point of failure (SPOF) analysis and we have strong expertise in the design of HV systems up to 33kV.
