M&E WORKS ASSESSMENT
quality of M&E Works is important in view of its increasingly
high cost proportion and its impact on the performance of a building.
The assessment covers Air-conditioning & Mechanical Ventilation
Works (ACMV), Electrical Works, Fire Protection Works, the Sanitary
& Plumbing Works and the basic M&E fittings. The stages
of the assessment include:
(i) Site inspection of in-process works during construction such
as on ACMV ductworks, electrical conduits, concealed pipes, etc.
(ii) Site inspection of final installed works such as the Air-Handling
Unit (AHU), the cooling tower, fire alarm control panel, etc.
(iii) Performance tests on selected works such as Water Pressure
Test, Earthing Test, Dry Riser Test, etc.
