Mechanical | Electrical | Plumbing (MEP)

Marx|Okubo’s in-house Mechanical/Electrical/Plumbing (MEP) group knows that your real estate portfolio is a substantial investment and must have high-performing building systems. We work with building owners and operators to ensure that the building system assets are well maintained and work at peak performance.


MEP systems are among the most complex and expensive building components to install, maintain, and replace. Marx|Okubo brings in-depth knowledge of MEP system operating characteristics, expected service life, failure modes, and costs to help minimize risk for clients who are purchasing or are maintaining a property throughout the buildings life cycle.

We use our own in-house licensed engineers to evaluate the building systems—helping clients identify, evaluate, and implement solutions for the maintenance, repair, and replacement of system assets. Building systems have a large impact on energy consumption and operating expenses to keep a building in peak performance. By evaluating the building energy consumption or looking at the operations and maintenance practices of MEP systems, we can improve building performance resulting in a beneficial return on investment.

Marx|Okubo has extensive knowledge of national and local regulatory and code requirements to actively keep clients in compliance with national, state, and local building codes and regulatory statues that have become increasingly important in the pursuit of green technology alternatives.
