The main project focus was
the provision of specialist M&E services, and from a base build shell we
designed an effective solution to accommodate the requirements. The
M&E installation included zonal lighting systems on PIR sensors, with
specific lighting requirements for each of the floors. We also designed and
installed new alarm systems including fire and intruder alerts whilst ensuring
that the fire integrity of the building as a whole was maintained. A bespoke
sprinkler system was also installed. As an additional project element, we
managed the connection of the SIS services to the satellite teleport system
located at Salford Quays.
Floors eight and nine were allocated for recording use with several studios constructed on each floor with bespoke acoustic requirements. The partition walls on these floors were constructed slab to soffit using the specification and details from the client’s acoustic consultant. This ranged from 40 Rw dB to 58 Rw dB to which a specialist range of decorative wall and ceiling pads were applied. The result was a high quality sound blocking wall with added reverberation deadening properties. Lighting level controls were also required for the recording studios.
Floor 10 was fitted out as open plan office spaces.
