engineering climate technology systems in the Shard

engineering climate technology systems in the Shard

Our UK Climate technology team had the great opportunity to engineer a solution on the iconic Shard of Glass building near London Bridge. A competitor had been working on the specifications for more than 18 months, and the contractor came under time pressure. In less than three months, our Climate Control team reworked the original specification and engineered a solution that reduced the total cost of the project by more than 50%. All technical requirements had been met – but that’s only half of it.
 
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.
