Historic buildings
  Historic Buildings
Works to historic buildings require a sensitivity to, and appreciation of, the quality and significance of the building structure and fabric. The incorporation of modern levels of comfort, communication and associated systems without causing irreversible impact on the fabric provides Building Services Engineers with major challenges.

Galleries & Museums
  Galleries and Museums
Galleries and Museums are frequently subject to temporary or touring exhibitions in addition to any permanent installations, often requiring specific environmental conditions to meet insurance or National/ Government Indemnity Scheme requirements.

Good quality environmental conditions, extensive services and IT infrastructure are paramount in creating an effective pleasant workplace atmosphere...

Major industrial installations are often initially tailored to specific uses, but commonly market changes result in a change of use. The technology installations need therefore to be adaptable and variable. Sophisticated manufacturing plant and equipment demand cleaner and more controllable working conditions and quality installations are necessary even in the most industrial workplaces...

Performing Arts
Most performance arts facilities need to cater for a wide range of performances, classical music and dance, contemporary music and dance, and stage shows, all with differing requirements for lighting, sound systems, and environmental conditions. A flexible basic infrastructure is required in performance spaces, with incorporation of individual requirements to suit. A wide range of associated administration, catering and public area facilities are usually needed to enhance the overall visitor experience...

Special projects
  Specialist Projects
The diverse range of projects with which we have been associated have common themes, detailed design, selections of equipment appropriate to the specific project requirements, determination of Clients preferences, and cost effectiveness, which can be applied to projects outside the normal scope. Whilst specialist projects may require specific technological facilities, high quality design, attention to detail, and providing facilities which meet or exceed the Clients requirements cross-over to every project with which we are involved...
