The 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.
