About The Project:

Located at Annesley Park Nottingham, this facility comprises manufacturing areas for specialised surface coating systems and research and development laboratories. It also consists of a two storey office block which includes a canteen and changing rooms.


The mechanical services work involved the installation of specialist acid and alkali fume extract systems capable of handling 25m3/s of air to service the plating shop along with a dust extraction system capable of handling 12m3/s of air services for the spray booths and other specialist plant.


Extracted air was replaced by a series of roof mounted gas fired warm air units with the heating being achieved by gas fired radiant heaters in the production areas and heat pumps in the offices.


Due to site restrictions on effluent discharge and mains water consumption, an effluent treatment plant enabled water to be recycled thus limiting the effluent discharge to 50m2/day. Other services included compressed air and specialist gasses such as helium, argon, acetylene, hydrogen and oxygen.


The site was provided with a 6MW 11KV infrastructure to support the manufacturing facility which was distributed through three step-down transformers and two LV substation arrangements.


Manufacturing facility power was distributed through 1600 and 3000A high level busbar trunking to the production areas.


A secondary switchboard provided 2MW of power for specialist PVD machines and was provided to large water cooling, high tech extract and filtration systems from the main switchboard.


The automatic and manual fire alarm system was an analogue addressable link to operate the automatic smoke vents and shutters.


The site was protected by intruder detection and security access systems, together with CCTV monitoring system to the exterior of the building.
