MEP Roundtable | January 2023

It was great to welcome the key players in the London MEP contracting market to our roundtable sessions this week, to discuss “let’s make MEP affordable again”.  The two sessions were well attended and covered a variety of subjects including how we might rationalise the traditional design & procurement process, how we could mitigate the skilled labour shortage and what to expect in terms of inflation in 2023.

A recurring theme throughout the sessions was the benefits of early MEP Contractor engagement through a correctly set up PCSA process at the right design stage, where advice such as buildability, plant selection, embodied carbon and engineering alternatives could be provided, which in turn would de-risk a project whilst adding true value.  We look forward to feeding back to both our clients and the attendees the views discussed & our conclusions for the first half of this year.
