A few extra details might come in handy for a recommendation, for example:

1. what size prints to you want? While engineers often want large format, you should note that there are no multifunction units larger than A3/Tabloid.
2. what is your budget? A3 is significantly more expensive than A4
3. do you need double-sided printing?
4. how many paper trays do you require? This is especially important if you need larger than A4.
5. what print speed would you like? Remember that inkjet speeds are always exaggerated; laser speeds are more realistic.
6. Does the printer need to be networked? Do you need to scan across the network or to email?
7. etc, etc.

OK, if you need A0 then you will have to go for an inkjet - there are no A0 lasers.

I have not used any such system so I can't really recommend any, but both HP and Canon claim to have systems.

All of them seem to consist of a printer and a scanner, but one system you can look at is the Canon IPF815 MFP. It has no network port, but you could of course connect it to a server and share it.

I suspect you may be better off investing in a separate printer & scanner, but I'll wait and see if anyone else has experience with such systems
