M & E Works Completed on New STEM Building

September 23 2019

Kershaw Mechanical Services are delighted to have completed the M&E works on the new STEM building for the University of Bedfordshire.

The building, based at the Luton campus, has now officially been handed over in readiness for the start of the new academic year in September 2019.

Appointed by main contractor R G Carter, Kershaw Mechanical Services provided a full mechanical and electrical installation for the four-storey building.

The mechanical elements of the installation include gas fired boilers, an air source heat pump and chillers serving a four pipe fan coil unit heating and cooling system throughout the 600m2 building. A mechanical ventilation system including roof mounted air handling units and ductwork and specialist systems (such as medical gasses, fume extract from fume cupboards) were supplied and installed. The installation also includes a rainwater harvesting system and purified water systems. The electrical installation included all power, lighting, data, fire alarm, photovoltaic array system and security.

The building will allow the university to promote the value of science and engineering to local schools and the wider Bedfordshire community.
