When we talk about the development of the developing nations, smart cities are the key to this overall development but healthy and beneficial progress will only take place when there is a sustainable idea of transforming cities into ‘smart cities’. For increasing economic growth and improving the living standard of the citizens, the government has also taken the step of building smart cities with the project of smart buildings as a place of residence for them. The important role is played by the MEP contractors, i.e. mechanical contractors, electrical contractors, and plumbing contractors. Before you go deep into understanding the concept of MEP designs and services, provided by the Mechanical contractors, plumbing contractors, and electrical contractors respectively. The role of MEP in the name of calling a city smart is important as MEP design is the backbone of the structures constructed environment-friendly and long-lasting, without putting huge harm to the environment, the same as the government desire nowadays. Every aspect of making a building smart comes under the MEP design and planning. The role of Mechanical contractors, plumbing contractors, and electrical contractors is essential as they are the one who is going to provide you the knowledge or carrying out the process. The execution of the MEP services and design cannot be done by the traditional manpower skills and building contractors. Traditionally, we needed some good services from the plumbing, electrical circuits, and mechanical service providers.
To fulfill the need for a smart city concept, an enhancement of the technical skills in the manpower is obligatory. This can be fulfilled with the help of making Mechanical contractors, plumbing contractors, and electrical contractors a part of the building development and construction. The skills needed for the technical advancement of the resources used in the construction of a building are like- updated knowledge and experience in the domain of HVAC (Mechanical), the newer methods of better circuit connections (Electrical) and Plumbing. All these aspects are inclusive of proper MEP scheduling, plan, outline and finishing. Making a building smart needs many significant aspects to be finished inside a building or infrastructure. Utilization of MEP software in the construction of other infrastructural components of the city such as bridges, roads, metro lines, transportation, and other construction is the way to reach to the concept of being ‘smart’. The Mechanical contractors, plumbing contractors and electrical contractors are all well educated about the usage of MEP software/tools for the implementation of load calculations, air distribution as well as hydraulic systems. The estimation required for the electrical equipment such as a DG set, Cables and their load calculations, switch gears for several multistoried complexes are attained by the MEP software easily which is done by the manpower associated with the Mechanical contractors, plumbing contractors, and electrical contractors. The precise estimate of water capacity, no. of pipe fittings Accordingly, sizes of the pumps, the calculation related to the estimation of the waste system, rainwater harvest and fire combating system, etc. are the functioning of the MEP software’s design and planning section.
