This prestigious, complex and rewarding project involves a combined detailed design Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) consultancy and a technical advisors role for the provision of a new “Contact Call Centre”, executive suites and support services for Swinton Insurance located within the new Embankment Building 101 in City Centre Manchester.
ESD took an active role during the latter stages of the construction of the new Embankment complex in providing M&E technical advisory assistance to Swinton Insurance to ensure the multimillion pound base build M&E installation and associated design met with their specific requirements. Through extensive consultations, site meetings and review exercises the building was successfully completed and handed over in 2016.
In addition to the base build commentary, ESD were appointed as the technical advisors on the multi-level fit out of the new building ensuring that the fit out designs were in accordance with Swinton Insurances requirements. To date a number of floors have been successfully handed over and are currently operational occupied by Swinton Insurance staff.
A new 200kVA Uninterruptable Power Supplies (UPS) system has been detailed designed by ESD, installed and handed over in 2017 as part of the development and is currently operational within the “live” building.
ESD are currently liaising with Swinton Insurance on the detailed design of a new 500 kVA emergency generator system for building to ensure that critical infrastructure is backed up under loss of mains power. These works are due to complete in the summer of 2017.
