The project consisted of 2 individual buildings with each building having its own plant room. Each building was stripped completely of its heating pipework and radiators. Both plant rooms were stripped of the old outdated systems and replaced with new highly efficient gas fired condensing boilers, all new pumps and a state of the art BMS Control system.
Carbon steel pipework and fittings were installed throughout both buildings for distribution as hot works were not an option giving the old, fragile nature of the buildings.
Both buildings were fully occupied for the duration of the project, meaning all works to be completed had to be programmed on a day to day basis to allow the staff to vacate their workspace while the works took place.
Murphy and Kelly took on the responsibility of the main contractor on the project and all health and safety, mechanical, electrical and builders works, including painting, fire sealing and cleaning was done by us. The project started in October which meant implementing temporary heating supplies to both buildings and phasing the commissioning of each floor, keeping in mind staff still occupied most areas.
Each building had a separate BMS Panels but both were linked back to main reception in building one using a touch screen delta controller. Before the project commenced we had both plant rooms manufactured in our Thomastown workshop which allowed us to achieve heat back on to some areas within 3 weeks of starting on site. The project was completed on programme in 10 weeks.
