This project was the fit-out of a large warehouse space, office accommodation, meeting rooms, staff facilities, ancillary rooms and a showroom.

The overall design philosophy was to adopt low energy and low carbon generating systems. Energy demands have been minimised throughout the design and the use of efficient plant and energy conservation measures has been adopted.

Sub metering of substantial energy issues was achieved along with effective control and zoning of the lighting installation. Low energy fluorescent lighting was installed complete with presence and daylight lighting controls to ensure economic, low energy solutions with low maintenance requirements.

The works associated with this project were as follows:

Design of the electrical services, LV distribution services, cable containment systems, internal, emergency lighting systems and controls installation, small power services, data and telephone services, L2 fire alarm system within the offices and category M system within the warehouse, security and access control systems, disabled persons call system and mechanical plant power supplies
