JDP is a building services engineering consultancy that successfully combines a practical approach to M&E engineering solutions with a collaborative attitude to working in a project team, in a way that considers our impact upon the wider environment and the community in which we work.
JDP was founded in 1972 and has developed as a customer-focused practice. We have controlled growth at a sustainable level whereby we can provide our client, of whatever size, with a personal service. This approach has resulted in long-term relationships with occupiers, investors and developers, working across sectors: workplace, education, data centres, residential, student accommodation, hotels, leisure, catering, retail and heritage.
We recruit engineers from a variety of back-grounds: some working for contractors before moving into design consultancy and others developing their experience within the design profession. This provides our practice with a combination of skills and experience to provide practical, buildable designs and a good understanding of site safety issues.
To complement the skills of our engineering staff, we use design software for mechanical, electrical and lighting design and for thermal modelling. We use AutoCAD for 2D drawing and Revit MEP for 3D drawing and design, with a team with BIM experience.
We aim to understand our client’s objectives and how their “business” influences their use of their properties. We aim to work with our client to get the best out of their buildings, from the point of view of both the initial design and the on-going life of the building; to make sure that it will work for the users of the building. This will take into account ease of installation and maintenance and the energy efficiency of the services.
It is our stated aim on all projects to ensure that we help our clients, through practical design and support, to deliver buildings that work efficiently.
