This Project was the construction of a new building to accommodate and re-educate the young homeless of an inner city area. BJP undertook the design and supervision of the engineering services, which had to be particularly robust.
The building arrangement included Services to independent accommodation modules, each of which had full energy auditing facilities.
The education areas of the building utilised mechanical ventilation with high-level intakes, to account for the poor air quality in the City Centre location. Complementary low energy design and heat recovery make this a highly economic solution.
The teaching spaces incorporate IT systems, communications and specialist lighting. The building also has integrated security with access control and CCTV.
The building services installations also included provision for food preparation etc, as well as traditional engineering services.
Excellent liaison with the Client led to a project completed within programme and budget.
