Our Services

Building services engineering design dictates how comfortable that building will be for its occupants on a day-to-day basis. AMA offers audits, advice, design of new systems, condition surveys of existing infrastructure and troubleshooting of systems that are not performing efficiently.

Mechanical Services

Mechanical services bring a building to life and help to make it comfortable for its occupants. We provide consultancy advice in relation to mechanical services, existing and new. AMA mechanical services include:

  • Air conditioning, heating and ventilation, including industrial ventilation
  • Chilled water systems, steam systems, Low Temperature Hot Water (LTHW), Medium Temperature Hot Water (MTHW) and High Temperature Hot Water (HTHW) systems
  • Gas and oil energy supply systems
  • Controls, Building Management System (BMS)
  • Renewable and low carbon technologies

Electrical services

AMA design safe and efficient electrical services. AMA electrical services include:

  • Power distribution, lighting design
  • Electricity generating plant
  • Lightning protection
  • Nurse call systems
  • CCTV
  • Renewable and low carbon technologies

Public health services

AMA design sustainable water supply, wastewater, drainage and fire suppression systems alongside specialist services for healthcare and science facilities. AMA services include:

  • Domestic hot and cold water services
  • Above ground drainage
  • Rain water collection
  • Grey water recovery systems

Building physics services

At AMA every decision we make is backed up by research and exploration. The ventilation, heating and lighting systems we propose are interrogated by our in-house Building Physics expert. AMA uses Building Physics to analyse occupant comfort, energy use, carbon emissions and operational performance. AMA services include:

  • Energy modelling to test strategies and demonstrate Part L compliance by Simplified Building Energy Model (SBEM) and Dynamic Simulation Modelling (DSM)
  • Ventilation studies using Integrated Environmental Solutions Virtual Environment (IES VE) dynamic thermal simulation and MacroFlo
  • Overheating risk and solar heat gains analyses
  • Moisture, condensation and dew point analyses
  • Daylight calculations
  • Energy and sustainability statements for planning applications, low or zero carbon (LZC) energy reports and feasibility studies

Real estate services

AMA helps clients optimise their building’s energy and systems performance and incorporate more sustainable approaches. We undertake extensive surveys, live systems monitoring, detailed modelling of the building and systems and energy profiles simulation with Integrated Environmental Solutions Virtual Environment (IES VE) and Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) software. AMA real estate services include:

  • Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) due diligence, MEP surveys
  • Life cycle costing
  • Plant and systems replacement
  • Energy optimisation
  • HVAC system modelling

BIM services

At AMA we use Autodesk Revit Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) to accurately visualise and assess viability of proposed MEP. We can then monitor our own work and that of other suppliers alongside the existing infrastructure, tracking projects from concept to completion. AMA BIM services include:

  • 3D scanning and Revit models
  • Creation of MEP families for third parties
  • Production of BIM visualisations for designs carried out by others
  • BIM for MEP services from inception to completion
  • BIM MEP animations
