MEP Associates Designs Group, Inc.
MEP Associates Design Group Inc. is a full-service, in-house local design firm. Lowrie Floyd, Director of Operations, has provided efficient engineering design for a full array of commercial businesses for over 20 years through MEP Associates and the previous companies he directed in Pennsylvania. He has directed projects for a vast array of commercial entities including nursing homes and assisted living facilities, all levels of educational facilities from pre-school through college, churches, hospitals, medical facilities, retail businesses, restaurants, hotels, shopping centers, offices, factories, warehouses, industrial facilities and apartments.
Our firm has extensive experience in working with publicly funded projects, historical, adaptive reuse, additions, renovations and structural retrofit, as well as new construction. We have designed systems for projects in several states, which requires a broad knowledge, and increased ability to analyze and apply local and state codes and regulations as well as knowledge of federal and international code requirements for specialized projects, such as nursing homes, as well as general projects.
Lowrie Floyd and Jerry Godfrey, Director of Engineering, both have many years of field experience which enhances MEP’s ability as an engineering firm to provide superb on site evaluation of existing mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems currently in place. This is crucial in renovation as well as new construction projects which replace, coexist or tie in with current systems. This ability has provided our clients with value engineering services that has saved them an extensive amount of time and resources.
Their previous work as contractors in the mechanical and electrical fields uniquely qualifies them to understand engineering design from the practical point of view of construction services provided by specialized contractors and installers. They both understand the mindset and needs of contractors and are well equipped and willing to communicate and to facilitate communication between contractors, designers and owners to resolve problems that arise during the planning and construction process.
Our firm has a long history of focusing on the needs of our clients, which includes not only working directly with owners but also providing MEP design as a consultant and serving as a team member for numerous architects and construction companies. We have worked with several large clients, such as UT Health Northeast as an engineering consultant for Barham Architects, and for E.G. Stoltzfus and Tippets Weaver Architects providing engineering design for federally funded PHFA housing projects.
The diversity of experience and the capabilities of our personnel enable us to provide Complete Design, Drawings, and Specifications for all phases of Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing Systems from the initial site evaluation through construction completion. Regardless of who we are working for, we believe in utilizing logical and practical thinking throughout the entire design process, in order to produce an efficient and cost effective, state-of-the-art technological solution.
“We pride ourselves in being customer service driven, and we go the extra mile to meet your deadlines and your budgets.”
