Creating offices in three adjacent buildings to provide working space for around 400 employees for Sky. A challenging project that not only required the ventilation and lighting zones to be very slim to allow a mezzanine to be installed, but working for the M&E contractor under a very tight timescale to deliver a successful project on time.
Duties: Full detail design for the M&E contractor including thermal modelling to ensure the building performed as intended with such a high level of occupancy.
The project was to expand their offices into the existing pitched roof space. As with any building being expanded by some considerable proportion the challenge was to design the new services around the existing limited spare capacity. In addition, expanding into an area with very low floor to ceiling height limited the scope for M&E services being installed at high level, so the majority was installed in the eaves.
Duties: Full detail design including thermal modelling and natural ventilation modelling.
Existing offices refurbished to CAT A standard after tenant vacated. The project included new lighting, power, fire alarm, ventilation and chilled water air conditioning systems.
Duties: Services provided included full detail design, site supervision and commissioning witnessing.
Conversion of disused offices in an historic building in the city centre into a number of small office and small business units. Heating is via a central boiler system. All other services are resigned on a unit-by-unit basis for ease of sub metering.
Duties: Full detail design for the M&E contractor including SBEM and EPCs.
