The M&E infrastructure can account for up to 40% of the total fit out cost
Electrical systems and equipment form the backbone of most company operations today; from essential machinery to environmental comfort, communications and your premises security.
No matter what the size of the installation being considered, our Design and Planning Service can be tailored to assist you in developing a system that works for you.
Using our CAD systems we are able to, where required, produce full working drawings illustrating everything from lighting layouts and lux levels to power distribution and data network layouts with cable sizes and loadings.
Are all of your power supply requirements being met?
We can install total power solutions for entire buildings including back-up supplies and UPS systems, with full power installation utilising service outlets, buss-bar trunking and hard wired power to additional power sockets alongside an existing electrical setup.
The recommended maintained luminance is 500 lux for general offices
Lighting for many people is a high priority when carrying out any kind of new build or refurbishment. It can have a huge impact on the workplace and we take great care in developing systems that suit the most appropriate application. We ensure that solutions are easy to maintain and they create an environment that people want to be part of. A professionally designed and planned lighting system is a primary way to achieve an exciting and ideal working environment. Our experience in this field allows us to advise on all aspects of lighting, whether it is based upon style, cost or a combination of both.
The ideal temperature to work in is around 20°C.
It has been proven that staff working in air conditioned offices work more productively and better decisions are made when a temperature of between 19-21 deg C is maintained; humidity should be kept below 65%. The effect of humidity is more noticeable when the temperature is higher.
Requirements for an Air Conditioning system may vary between each application and consideration must be made to the area of the room, numbers of windows and lights, number of occupants, induced heat through solar gain and equipment within the room to name but a few.
Nowadays Air Conditioning units not only cool in summer but also heat in winter, combined with built in filters these units offer all year round comfort for the modern office environment.
We use only the major brand names which are renowned for their reliability, innovation and technology. Our products include Daikin, Fujitsu, Toshiba or Mitsubishi equipment.
Fresh air should also be introduced into the office space and special consideration should be given where photocopy areas are concerned, these should have direct extract of pollutants. Photocopy machines produce ozone and when it is not possible to place the machine in a separate room they should be sited a minimum of 4 metres from staff.
We also design and install wet and warm air heating systems to suit all building types.
Good communications are essential within a business if it is to be successful
Data / Communications Network
We can undertake data and telecommunications field wiring installations; Cat 5e, cat 6 and fibre optic. By instructing us to manage both data and voice installations as well as electrical will prove both financially and logistically beneficial. However, where required, we will work alongside your nominated computer or telephone system suppliers to ensure a thorough understanding and that a professional level of cooperation exists to enable the installation to proceed without problems.
Make sure you don’t become one of the statistics
Fire Alarm and Life Safety Systems
A comprehensive fire alarm system should be considered a very high priority and for any business employing more than five people it's a legal requirement. We can install small stand alone systems to multi loop, multi panel addressable systems with an array of integrated devices which can be linked to monitoring stations. We also ensure that sufficient emergency lighting provisions are catered for within the design criteria.
Are your assets and your staff properly protected?
Access Control / CCTV
To ensure the highest standards of site security are upheld, CCTV and access control systems (digital or biometric) are often installed to monitor and protect various areas and installations. Whether multi door access systems monitored by stand alone PC’s or a network of internal and external CCTV cameras monitored locally or remotely, we can supply the system that meets your needs.
Look after your investment
Service and Maintenance
Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) is essential and sometimes mandatory to keep your installation in top operating condition and is proven to be cost effective as it often reduces the possibility of down time and subsequent dilapidation costs.
Whatever level of care you require, we are able to assist you in extending the life and integrity of your new installation.
Enough said......it's all in house
