Project Challenges:
The entire project had to be completed while the main hotel was still operational.  This meant that our Electrical and Mechanical work had to be scheduled around busy hotel activities during the course of the day to ensure minimise disruption both to the hotel staff but also, most importantly for the hotel guests.

This was particularly challenging when we have to shut off the electrical supply to the entire hotel which was necessary in order to connect the Hotel and Spa Distribution Boards.

Working in a specialist environment such as a swimming pool is deemed as a ‘Special Installations of Locations’ job that forms a significant part of the Requirements for Electrical Installation. This means that we have to follow strict installation guidelines to ensure that all electrical installation work was fully compliant with current standards.

electrical contractor for commercial work

Electrical – Our electrical division were responsible for the complete installation of brand new mains power source, including upgraded CT metering and the installation of Distribution Boards throughout the building. As part of the complete rewiring of the building, we also fitted new electrical wiring from local distribution boards to new LED light fittings (and refurbished and upgraded fittings) as well as additional small power outlets.

The architectural designs required for the job included dimming controlled lighting in set ground and first floor open plan areas.

Working alongside our Mechanical division, we were responsible for the installation of new commercial kitchen equipment and the installation of Smoke Vent controls (required by our Fire & Security Division) that were connected to the roof Velux windows with main and remote panels located as required.

An elevator was installed by a specialist lift fitting contractor and to ensure the building was compliant, we a installed disabled refuge system on all main and half landing levels of the building that can be used in the event of an emergency.

We ensured that we stayed in close contact with our fellow contractors within HF to assist with power supplies and control requirements where necessary.

mechanical contractor for hvac plumbing and heating services

Mechanical – Our Mechanical Division were tasked with the installation of the buildings brand new central heating system and plumbing system.  This included everything from new combi boilers to radiators, pipping, sink units, toilets and showers.

Because of the age of the building, we fitted a new Gas supply for both boilers and kitchen cooking equipment.

Our HVAC team were also tasked with installing new ventilation and extraction systems throughout the building.

fire & security installers

Fire & Security – Our Fire & Security engineers installed a brand new L2 fire alarm system throughout the building that connected to various Mechanical installed gas systems.  We fitted a variety of Security devices and CCTV cameras across the site ranging from tamper alarms on windows to motion sensors in hallways, bell boxes and security lighting outside. We installed video and pin code Access Control Systems that use simple to operate control handsets installed and interlinked across all offices throughout the building.

Controls Jobs

Controls – Our Automated Controls team were contracted to design, build and install a main control panel for the site that would be located within the plant room of the building. The control system included wire to all valves and pumps and was linked with newly installed zonal thermostats throughout all levels of the structure. The controls system our team designed included built and wired controls for kitchen extract and intake fans as well as heating battery controls for both the kitchen and ground floor toilet areas.

Project Challenges:
The architect/interior designers wanted to keep the authentic rustic look and feel of the original school building where possible.  This meant that we had to work around existing interior design features. The Kinning Park Complex was originally built in 1910 as the science block of Lambhill Street Secondary School.  Due to the age of the building, difficult access restrictions and the complex nature of rewiring such an old building while installing new plumbing and heating systems – all while ensuring that the building met the latest fire and security standards –  understandably had its challenges.  But as ‘A Company Well Connected’, we can provide Electrical, Mechanical, Fire & Security as well as Control System services all under the one roof.  This means that through experience, skill and inhouse communication, our team were able to work through any obstacle that popped up during the site fitting.
