Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing Design

Staggs and Fisher Consulting Engineers, Inc. offers a full spectrum of services in Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP) design. From utility master planning to parking lot lighting levels, our goal is to provide the owner with systems that perform as desired at the end of construction and well into the future.

Our main office is located in Lexington, Kentucky and as such, we primarily provide services to the Commonwealth. However, we have provided services in other areas including Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Indiana, and West Virginia.

  • Master Planning

    A well-crafted master plan is essential for the utilities and infrastructure for building complexes. We have been assisting healthcare groups and universities be prepared for the future through a process of early decision making and streamlining the details, which results in savings on capital and long term operational costs.
  • Sustainable Design

    Environmentally sensitive issues are factored into every design decision we make, from the selection of efficient equipment to the impacts of equipment location and material quantities.  We balance construction cost with utility and life cycle costs to provide our clients with efficient, eco-friendly systems they can afford and maintain.
  • Infrastructure / Central Utilities

    Our experience with the design and installation of central utilities and infrastructure gives us a firm understanding of the challenges associated with the growth and maintenance of systems. Our expertise with these systems allows us to reduce our clients' costs and maximize performance while minimizing inherent inconveniences as systems are expanded and improved.
  • Plumbing / Piping

    Our extensive experience with healthcare, labs, BSL-2 and BSL-3 research, and vivaria facilities enables our team to design plumbing systems across many building types. Our piping specifications have been time-tested and new systems are thoroughly investigated for field-worthiness and performance before being specified for a project. Conservation of water is always a priority and is clearly evident in our LEED-registered green designs.
  • Safety & Security

    The health, welfare, and safety of those experiencing our designs are always our first priority. Providing robust and effective fire alarm, security, access control, and mass notification systems is one aspect of our layered approach to address those concerns and to provide a safe built environment.
  • Fire Protection

    Safety for occupants and protection of equipment are always a high priority when designing fire protection systems. Our design professionals provide expertise with strict adherence to code to insure compliance with inspectors and fire marshals.
  • Technology

    Telecommunications systems form the nervous system of the modern building, allowing information to flow from end to end and from system to system. Public address, nurse call, and clock systems provide additional forms of information dispersal. Our designs are flexible and make efficient use of resources to address our clients' needs.
  • Instrumentation & Controls

    Driven by sustainable design and technological advances, controls packages are ever improving. We prides ourselves on understanding the implications of the advancements, determining the correct controls system for the owner/project, and insuring the software and hardware configurations are clearly outlined and set to function for optimal performance.
  • Electrical

    Ranging from medium voltage campus distribution to energy efficient light designs and lighting controls, our electrical designs are as varied as the projects in which we are involved.  Our expertise and years of experience lead us to effectively solve project design challenges in ways which serve our clients both in the short term and for the foreseeable future.
  • HVAC

    The mechanical engineering team has the ability to provide building owners with energy efficiency, clean air, and a comfortable environment. When these needs are met, utility bills are reduced and building users can be more productive and more satisfied with their environment. We have been designing energy efficient buildings long before “green” was mainstream.
