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:

  • LV distribution
  • Lighting and power
  • Fire and intruder detection systems
  • LTHW
  • Ventilation
  • Above ground drainage
  • Domestic water
  • Sprinklers
  • CHP
  • BMS
  • Underfloor heating
  • Key facts:

  • 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.
