02 Project Requirements
Amber Management & Engineering Services were required to deliver several key items, some being High Bay Storage, Office Accommodation, Vehicle Workshops, Simulator Area for Training and Main Packing Hall.
At the heart of the project is a 147 metre long 16 metre high main hall. The challenge facing the team was to heat and ventilate the space whilst not requiring any MEWP access for maintenance as the floors are fully utilised 7 days a week.
The solution was high level plant decks with air movement equipment. The design of this element of MEP was based on modular principles and included full BMS and pipework installations. Systems were fabricated off site for fast placement and incorporation on site.
The building benefited from full heat pump boiler installations for heating of the 2400 sq metre offices and domestic hot water, and 140 kWe of PV Installations.
With the MEP technologies designed and incorporated, the building achieved a Very Good DREAM Rating
The whole project was delivered in just 24 months from inception to completion.
