Building Design & Construction
Engineering services relating to building design, construction and maintenance have formed a core activity in our operations since the company was founded in 1989.
We offer our clients direct access to a team of highly qualified and experienced specialists offering consultancy services in preliminary work, building design, construction management as well as construction supervision and maintenance work. EMPMI has served as engineering consultant on almost every type of building project including, domestic housing, schools, hotels, sports centers, offices, factories, hospitals and health centers.
From preliminary or structural designs for buildings and other structures, to the design of HVAC, electrical and control systems, to developing fire safety plans and designing diverse acoustical solutions, specialists at EMPMI have the knowledge to solve project challenges of any size.
Engineering Field Services
EMPMI offers experienced field engineering and measurement services including, geodetic surveys, hydrological services and acoustical measurements. The company employs a staff of highly trained and experienced specialists as well as all of the requisite tools, instruments and measuring equipment.
Successful engineering projects require attention to detail at every step from initial concept to operations. Field services such as site surveying, geological and hydrological assessments determine key design elements that must be identified, measured and recorded accurately and thoroughly. Only when this data from the field is properly gathered and communicated can the planning, design, and modelling work begin. Having a single entity handle both the field work and engineering helps to ensure that the information is interpreted correctly and efficiently. Once a project’s initial steps are completed and the project is fully underway, coordination between a field team and the rest of the project team is maintained at this same high level of communication, to secure the project’s success.
Fire Safety Engineering
EMPMI provides fire safety consulting to architects, contractors and real estate companies and conducts fire-safety evaluations of buildings, ensuring code compliance with all current laws and regulations along with performance-based design.
There are many facets to consider in fire safety design. Examples include, flammability characteristics of building materials, sectioning of buildings into fire and smoke zones, escape routes, structural heat tolerances, predicting fire spread, fire warning systems and fire extinguishing equipment.
Our fire safety engineers provide evaluations for building and planning, as well as in connection with industry, industrial processes and transportation, applying their experience and expertise to diverse and challenging projects.
Geotechnical design is an important element in the preliminary stage of all structures and EMPMI’s specialists have vast experience in this field. The most extensive projects are related to power plant projects, steel pilings in harbour construction, dam design, infrastructure and power intensive industries.
EMPMI’s consultants have extensive experience in geotechnical design and the supervision of such structures. Foundation bearing capacity is evaluated, stability calculated, settlement predictions and liquefaction potential during earthquakes assessed. In larger projects, it is often necessary to perform comprehensive and specialized geotechnical investigations on soil and bedrock material properties.
Research is conducted on minerals intended for use, and on foundations for structures. Where rock is at depth, SPT and/or CPT-holes are drilled to determine soil characteristics. In addition, undisturbed samples are taken to evaluate shear strength and settlement properties.
EMPMI offers comprehensive consulting services in the areas of infrastructure & transport and has played a leading role in Hungary’s public and private development for decades. The company enjoys a strong working relationship with local and national governments, private developers, public utilities, the Public Roads Administration, the National Power Company and more. Since 1989, EMPMI has been the trusted design and consulting engineering firm for infrastructure and transportation projects.
The company offers a multidisciplinary approach to projects, drawing on specialists from other sectors to ensure the success of every project we run. And, with company services spanning the range of all civil engineering disciplines, EMPMI provides its infrastructure and transport customers with every service they need for a successful project of any size.
