In this site, you will find articles related to Facilities, Mechanical, and Electrical Engineering. Machinery, especially, related to buildings systems are described and discussed.
Air conditioning systems, fire fighting and protection systems, water treatment systems, electrical power distribution systems, compressed dry air systems, and many other systems can be found here.
You will also find sections on skills training, where you can pick up some skills yourself.
Facilities Engineering involves Mechanical and Electrical fields, and a bit of Civil Engineering. Most of the machinery are large and heavy.
The job of servicing these machinery naturally has its own special techniques and practices. The air conditioning environment for some of the buildings have to be controlled very precisely. This is especially so in a manufacturing environment, or where sensitive equipment are installed.
Special processes in manufacturing may require the generation of deionized water. Steam generation can also be dangerous if not handled properly. Fire can occur in any building. How are the buildings being protected from fire?
Facilities Engineering is about the operation and maintenance of the buildings in an efficient, and safe manner.
Management of Facilities is important for the Facilities Engineer. Topics like training of personnel, leadership, energy management, preventive maintenance systems can be found in this site. Some equipment calls for a certain level of competency for operation.
If you would like to find out more about mechanical and electrical equipment in buildings, you will also find many useful links on this site.
The Facilities Engineer has to be multi-skilled. He may be called upon to adjust air conditioning equipment, troubleshoot on pumps, respond to emergencies like fire, flooding, electrical power failure, breakdown of essential equipment, ensuring compliance to environmental laws, ensuring the quality of the water supply, and many others.
This site will be of interest to all who like Mechanical and Electrical subjects.
