Roof Top Plant
Work began on the newly constructed roof with the installation of the designed bespoke steelwork that would support:
-Packaged plant room (designed and built off-site)
-Air handling unit
-Air conditioning units
-Chilled water plant
Plant Room
The main plantroom for the store was designed and built off-site at our base in Preston, and this approach brought some key benefits:
-Ability to start plantroom build in advance of site construction
-Much tighter quality control due to local access during build
-Fast on-site installation once site ready to accept the plantroom
Under Floor Heating
UFH zones laid to ground floor areas of the store.
Office Fan Coil Units
Office comfort is achieved using a mix of ceiling and floor mounted fan coil units, with chilled water from roof-mounted Daikin units to provide cooling when required.
Commercial Catering
Kitchen, Deli, and Cafeteria areas were installed and finished to a high standard facilitating both practicality of use, and maintenance of cleaning regimes.
Ventilation & Ductwork
Examples of the various ductwork and finishing.
-Behind the scenes finishing standards
-Technologies used to deliver comfort
-Quality finishes to suit the location
Toilet Facilities
Careful attention to all aspects of installation, fixings and finish.
Each toilet space finished to a high standard.
