Added Value

Briggs & Forrester completed a design redevelopment to create a plant deck which would allow all plant to be in the same location rather than across two plantrooms. The creation of the plant deck also reduced the noise levels to the adjoining hotel and eliminated the need for expensive louvres.

We rationalised the original mechanical ventilation plant serving the main exhibition hall from the traditional chillers and boilers to an integral packaged air source heat pumps, which is far more energy efficient and reduced energy and running costs for the Client. Rationalisation of mechanical and air conditioning plant also resulted in reduced overall costs allowing the Clients budget to be met.

What we did for this project...

We have a fully integrated design and build capability across the group, including 3D coordination and Building Information Modelling. By developing the design and being fully involved in the early stages of a project, we can provide timely design solutions and verification.

The group provides a range of specialist skills encompassing engineering, design, installation, and maintenance. The combined experience, knowledge and expertise of all five divisions enables the group to develop and implement fully-integrated solutions for some of the most complex and demanding mechanical, electrical and public health engineering installations.

We guarantee a smooth handover transition with the project team remaining the main point of contact, the development of commissioning and training plan and regular visits from our team in the months after practical completion.
