    Fowler Martin was appointed as the employers M&E consultant and undertook the following duties:

    • Design of the mechanical and electrical services and production of tender documents
    • Liaising with Client and End User
    • Attend design team workshops and meetings
    • Assist with Building Regulations submissions
    • Review contractor design proposals
    • Attend project progress meetings
    • Witness and sign off commissioning
  • Key Challenges

    The main challenge was to provide two independent systems for the two different occupants of the building. Due to the different use of each space the occupancy patterns did not match.

    Each End User wanted separate control of their environment, and therefore to reduce energy costs, it was imperative that the unoccupied areas should be stand alone from each other.

  • Team Integration

    Fowler Martin played a vital role as the Clients M&E consultant and ensuring the brief was met. This was achieved by continuous discussions with the design team and attending design team meetings.
  • Sustainability

    Fowler Martin is committed towards sustainability and the environment and ensures that any new design complies with Building Regulations and obtains approval's from the Local Authority.

    The design included the use of inverter driven motors, energy metering systems, high efficiency lighting, high efficiency boilers and BMS control to ensure continuous monitoring and early warning of faults.
