Mechanical, electrical and plumbing services installation, Glasgow
Our in-house M&E division delivered the mechanical, electrical and plumbing services package for the new build Blairdardie Primary School in Glasgow, on behalf of main contractors BAM. A new fit for purpose, modern facility was built to replace the existing school as part of a £21m deal completed by Glasgow City Council to replace both Carntyne and Blairdardie Primary Schools.
The project involved a complete fit-out of the M.E.P services for the school including:
Lighting and power
Fire and intruder detection systems
Above ground drainage
Our M&E division produced a programme to sequence the works to ensure the timely delivery and installation which involved first fix bracketry being made off site to push the works forward.
Sustainable elements included: ‘Breathing Buildings’ installation which utilises fresh air in the Games Hall & Assembly areas area along with a CHP being installed within the plantroom.
We provided community engagement during the project delivery by employing local labour and hiring more apprentices.
We had input into the design by working alongside the M&E consultants and suggesting alternative materials for the sprinklers and HVAC fans as well as managing the Contractor Design Portions.
