We were awarded a contract with a project cost of nearly £1,000,000 to upgrade the controls system at the Department of Health and Department of Health of Social Security headquarters, Quarry House in
The building is described as landmark within the Quarry Hill area
with nearly 400,000 square feet of office space. The project activities
from concept through to design, installation, commissioning, validation
and handover were undertaken entirely by us.
One of the project challenges was the requirement to carry out
project works with zero disruptions to the customer business activities.
This was successfully achieved with full customer satisfaction thanks
to the flexibility and dedication of our engineering team. Through
extensive planning and detailed risk assessments and method statements
addressing every individual aspect of works carried out, the project was
completed with zero accidents.
The project covered the upgrading of 1455 FCU and VAV controllers
spread across nine floors and 18 controls panels in various plant rooms.
Our engineering team worked round the clock to achieve zero disruptions
to our customer’s business, zero accidents and on-time as well as
on-budget delivery of the project. Exceptional delivery of this project
has helped us to remain as the preferred service provider to DWP
following project completion and handover in January 2013.
Following completion, the benefits of the Controls upgrade are
quickly being realised with 26% reduction in electricity consumption as
shown within the graph below.
