International & multidisciplinary

Established in Rotterdam, we work with an ambitious, international team on assignments in the Netherlands, France, Germany, Russia and Norway, among other countries. The office structure is based on the expertise domains of Building Transformation, New Build projects and Urban Planning, within which research is fostered and knowledge is secured. To further increase brain power and decisiveness, Mei seeks collaboration with various parties in the field, from experts in the area of urban nature to the building materials industry.

Mei & BIM

At Mei, we are fascinated by real-time integrated design processes using BIM. With many large-scale BIM projects in our portfolio, this tool has been fully incorporated into Mei’s working method in recent years.
