Structural systems are the bearing components that, working together, can transmit the building’s loads to the foundation, guaranteeing balance and stability without suffering incompatible distortions.
Mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) are the systems guaranteeing the comfort and habitability of a building. For such purpose, they are designed taking carefully into account all the other formal and technical aspects of the building.
Quantity surveys are reports containing, broken down into sections, the list of items required to execute the works. Each of these items is called a “budget line”, which includes a measurement unit, and a description of the materials and labour required for the works.
Value engineering is a process in which corrective measures are applied to reduce the project’s cost, conforming, though, as much as possible to the original requirements of function, quality and comfort.
Technical reports are documents that describe the characteristics of the project from different approaches, complementing the information provided in the drawings with scientific data.
