Quality Standards for Electrical Earthing or Grounding System in Building Constructions

Quality Standards for Electrical Earthing or Grounding System in Building Constructions

Electrical Earthing or Grounding System for buildings to be carried out all in accordance with the international standards in conjunction with the local authority requirements and recommendations. Earthing standards and methods are highly depending on the nature of the utilities and equipment installed / used at the premises. Simple earthing system we provide to the domestic connections while complex systems are being used in the power stations and industries.








MEP Specifications For Building Construction

MEP Works

The acronym MEP became an integral word of a building project in Middle East Gulf region during year 2000. In the inception stage of MEP, there were involvement of only two engineering branches, Mechanical and Electrical, now it included electronics, instrumentation and communication. In some occasions, Mechatronics also partake in the project for smooth completion of the whole MEP works. Companies that carry out MEP works also known as Electro-Mechanical company which has multi-faceted technicians and engineers for effective design, coordination and execution of the works.
