OVERVIEW

In the summer of 2016, ECG were awarded the contract to replace the air handling unit at Orbital House in East Kilbride. This project involved close communication with ECG’s Projects Team and the on-site Management Team at Orbital House in order to ensure minimal disruption to the building users whilst these essential works were carried out. Before the commencement of any works, ECG’s Projects Team submitted a Programme of Works to Troup Bywater + Anders, scheduled directly around the project requirements and the needs of the building and its operations. Once approval of the Programme was received, ECG’s Projects Team began making safe and stripping out the existing ventilation plant, including the capping of the existing ductwork to a suitable location, as well as the strip out of all redundant LTHW pipework. From here, ECG handled the craneage of the existing air handling unit from the roof top plant area before craning the new heat recovery unit into the original location prior to installation of the new unit and its associated ductwork. ECG managed the specialist subcontractor who installed the controls package, including connection to the existing BMS to suit the new heat recovery unit serving the building. Following successful installation, ECG drained the existing systems which were made redundant as part of these works and re-instated the bird mesh over all external plant areas – making the area good to be handled back to the Client who was very pleased with the final result of the works.
