Leading engineering company, EDC Engineers, has recently introduced a new innovative Early MEP Risk Audit Service (EMRA) that will give clients certainty on project design and cost. The new service allows clients to move forward with projects secure in the knowledge that the risks have been minimised and that the design and costs are optimised.
This stand-alone service is part of the larger new Cost and Risk Management offering by a dedicated in-house MEP Cost Engineering team headed by Richard Coughlan, Associate Director, who has over 20 years of experience in the construction sector across Ireland, the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates.
Speaking on the launch of the cost and risk management service and his new role, Richard Coughlan said, “Building on EDC’s experience in the industry this was a natural extension for the company, and I’m thrilled to be working with the company and delighted with the opportunity to aid in the expansion of its specialist offering to clients.”
The Early MEP Risk Audit is an extensive offering that will deliver timely, detailed and value-driven answers for clients. It provides a safety net to ensure successful project delivery by using the company’s in-depth knowledge and experience to anticipate any incomplete or over-engineered MEP design elements. It also ensures budgets are aligned with the design brief, and gives insight into the project’s health, in addition to early warning of any potential cost, design or scheduling issues such as the potential of cost overruns and inadequate MEP design from the outset.
With the ongoing uncertainty in building costs, this service acts as a vital tool for Developers and Contractors at the pre-planning or design stage of an existing or new project.
Concerning the uncertainty faced by the rising building costs, Richard Coughlan continued, “We understand that now more than ever budget certainty and project timelines are important to ensure successful project delivery. This new service will be particularly beneficial in doing this, especially within new build and sustainability-focused sectors such as commercial, residential, industrial and data centres that are looking to ensure project surety”.
EDC has nearly 20 years of experience in the MEP Engineering sector in Ireland, the UK and abroad, and this new offering is a natural extension of the already high-performing services they offer. This new service will be supported by the company’s existing in-house design capabilities utilising the latest software and offer an immediate solution from an already established and trusted resource.
EDC Engineers offer services within a range of construction sectors across Ireland and the UK with offices in Cork, Dublin, Mid-West, and London.
