engineering climate technology systems in the Shard
During the installation phase, it became apparent that the main system design had been calculated on a lower working pressure than realistically possible. However, with the majority of the pipework and ancillaries in place, it became a project-saving exercise to lower the overall working pressure.
Our team developed a smart concept to tackle the pressurisation complexities. Working with the main contractor, we were able to treat the live system as a test site, which proved successful. Our value-added solution saved money and ultimately saved this high-profile project, allowing it to be completed on time.
