Their primary function is to act as the owner's advocate in the design and construction of the integrated building systems to ensure all systems operate as intended. In addition to standard mechanical systems for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), electrical, and plumbing, MEP systems can include: Energy Management Fire suppression Fire alarm Security Communications Data processing and transmission Specialized and process piping Uninterrupted power supply (UPS) Specialized lighting and lighting control These systems may be extremely complex and are usually interconnected.
