Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing

Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) are fundamental requirements of all modern-day buildings; including new, remodel and rebuild construction projects. There is not a building in the world that can be inhabitable by human‑kind without these systems installed, operated and maintained.

The YOUNG & ASSOCIATES MEP RESOURCE GROUP employs construction experienced tradespeople, estimators and engineers with an overall career understanding of how these systems are designed and constructed. With all this knowledge and technical expertise, we are able to forensically assess, evaluate and determine all aspects of loss-related and resultant damage to properties of all kinds. That scope information is utilized to produce RCV and ACV estimates of cost using the latest information for your repair or replacement projects. We also perform pre-loss assessments, Origin & Causation Analysis per NFPA 921 Regulations and Pre-Construction Plan Review and Building Code Analysis Assessments.
