about

AMA are a team of qualified engineers and technologists specialising in mechanical, electrical, public health (MEP) engineering services and building physics of the built environment in the UK and overseas.

AMA value teamwork, imagination, creativity, integrity and quality.

Sectors we work in: commercial & residential, education, government, healthcare, industrial, leisure & hospitality, sports & venues.


AMA method and experience

AMA front load projects with detailed surveys and data capture from meetings and consultations with end user, maintenance- and design teams. Analysis is key using in-house building physics to establish system requirements, test alternative strategies, consider design criteria and champion passive methods.

AMA work as a team to propose ideas and concepts, using real data from previous projects. We design buildings that work and have comfortable indoor environments without dominating the architecture. AMA believe that design is best when it is detailed.

We work with clients and their maintenance teams on optimising systems in use and have a long track record in working with and for contractors. The post handover and practical experience are key factors in our design approach.
