The project involved the refurbishment of Bridgegate House for North Ayrshire Council. The building is a four storey concrete framed structure located in the town centre of Irvine, and houses retail units at ground level and office accommodation on the upper floors. The project was designed to achieve a BREEAM rating of Very Good.
- The site was completed in 2 phases; with the North Ayrshire Council occupying the completed 1st phase while the construction continued on the 2nd phase. We had to ensure no services were interrupted during the phase 2 works and provided a seamless transition when incorporating the 2nd phase throughout commissioning and handover.
- We provided a complete data installation with fibre optic links installed throughout.
- The emergency LED lighting in the building is controlled via a head end computer located in the security office which reports faults on a daily basis and self-tests when the building is unoccupied.
- There is specialist external decorative lighting which is controlled via DMX and communicates with the council’s external lighting scheme.
- The lighting installation is LED throughout and general power from underfloor bus bar installed under the raised computer flooring throughout.
