Hospitals Engineering Services

The engineering services of a healthcare facility support the delivery of patient care and help to maintain a healing and safe environment. Engineering services are integral part of hospital infrastructure

Engineering services account for approximately 35-40% of the capital costs in the construction of health care facilities. The requirement for the healthcare design is that it facilitates high quality patient care for the most cost effective capital and recurrent cost. Engineering services have large contribution towards shaping the environment of care. The goal of Environment of Care is to provide a safe, functional and supportive environment for patients, staff and visitors. The environment of care is composed of the building, the equipment and the people


Engineering services of a hospital include:

  • The civil assets - Includes:

  • Building, Roads, Storm Water Drainage, Waste water drainage, Sewage Treatment Plant

  • Electricity supply

  • Water supply including plumbing and fixture

  • Steam supply

  • Acoustics and Lighting

  • Piped medical gas and vacuum system (PMGV)

  • Air conditioning and refrigeration – Lifts, pneumatic tube system and dumbwaiters

  • Public health services

  • Solid Waste Disposal System

  • Communication system, paging, CCTV

  • Building management system

  • Workshop facilities for repair and maintenance

Our Hospitals Mechanical Engineering Services:

Designing mechanical systems that balance comfort, cost, efficiency, and aesthetics requires a team effort. We see ourselves as the facilitator of that team — it’s our job to understand the needs and constraints of the project and then apply our experience to guide the team towards the solution that’s right for them. While our approach is grounded in fundamentals and in physics, it’s ultimately more about people than problem solving. It’s a process that’s helped us to create thousands of places for people to thrive over the years, and it’s one that we’re excited to share with you on your next project.

  • Sustainable Plumbing Solutions

What sets our mechanical engineering services and structural engineering services apart is the high value we place on partnering with our clients to provide the structural engineering solutions and mechanical engineering solution that best fits them and their specific project. We don’t believe in a “one-size-fits-all” approach; our ability to listen drives our design excellence. Meena Development LTD. mechanical engineers and structural engineers strive to understand each owner’s needs early in a project, then use their vast experience to identify a mechanical engineering solution that best fits those unique needs. Our mechanical engineers and structural engineers work closely with facility staff to integrate their design standards and equipment preferences into the solution, while also identifying value-added options for consideration when we deem appropriate. We work closely with the architect to document key elements that might impact engineering design, avoiding surprises later in the project.
