BEM Services carried out the mechanical services design of the Technical Engineering Centre at an international university taking the design from concept through to RIBA stage 4 including performance and duty information.
The building was designed to meet BREEAM Excellent standard through the use of photovoltaic panels and solar water heating panels. The building also incorporated air conditioning and heat recovery units to deal with the large amounts of IT equipment to be installed within it.
The design was completed to BIM level 2 standards and utilised 3D AutoCAD to integrate with the architect’s model. Hevacomp and IES were also used to ascertain heating and cooling loads.
