King’s Orchard, Bevan Brittan HQ

  • Client: Bevan Brittan LLP
  • Architect: AWW
  • Project Value: £12m

Dominic Anderson was the lead mechanical and electrical consultant for this very challenging riverside development.

The building was typical 1980’s stock, with sealed windows, deep floor plates and minimal floor to ceiling heights. The challenge was to increase the footprint of the building to gain additional floor area, whilst also providing an internal environment fully compliant with the British Council for Offices guidelines. This was successfully achieved through detailed design co-ordination with the professional team leading to a building that was delivered on time and within the clients budget.

Spectrum Building Refurbishment, Bristol

  • Client: Catalyst Capital
  • Architect: Gaunt Francis Architects
  • Project Value: £2.2million

With over 10,600m2 of central Bristol office accommodation over five floors, the iconic Spectrum Building is recognised by all.

With the M&E services dating back to the original installation date of 1982, the building services were not able to cope with the requirements of modern office accommodation. In order to rectify this, Dominic Anderson has been involved with the replacements of the existing AHU’s and cooling towers whilst the cooling capacity of the building was increased with the installation of highly efficient air-source reversible heat-pumps.

To compliment the revitalised mechanical installation, the existing office lighting was replaced with a new system, incorporating the latest presence detection and daylight linking technology. To complete the main plant refurbishment, the existing boilers and chillers were replaced, all whilst the building was occupied.

Timestream & Outstores Building, Taunton

  • Client: St. Modwen Properties Plc
  • Architect: Roberts Gardiner
  • Project Value: £5.6m

This new build development involved the creation of two purpose built Archive Stores for Somerset County Council. The new facilities provide close control of environmental conditions, as set out by BS 5454 for the controlled storage and viewing of historical and sensitive documents.

The fast track nature of the project required close liaison with the project team together with a detailed understanding of the developer’s legal agreements with the end-user.

35 Colston Avenue, Bristol

  • Client: Bevan Brittan
  • Project Value: £2m
  • Project Manager: APS Project Management

Dominic Anderson was appointed as the client’s M&E consultant, on the recommendation of the project manager.

The project involved the transformation of the existing office into space suitable for letting, and in compliance with the British Council for Offices guidelines.

A majority of the existing building services needed to be removed and replaced with new, efficient systems which not only increased the rental value of the space, but also reduced running costs.

A new air-source heating and cooling installation was designed enabling efficient use of energy together with the facility to meter individual tenant spaces.

31 Great George Street, Bristol

  • Client: Hermes
  • Project Value: £1m
  • Project Manager: Workman

Anderson Parslow were appointed to carry out the detailed M&E design of this refurbishment project.

Existing tenants remained in occupation throughout the duration of the construction process which required inventive design solutions to achieve this prestigious and high quality refurbishment whilst not impacting upon the operations of the existing tenants.

The Cat-A office design consists of exposed high level M&E services and bespoke light fittings to accentuate the existing concrete frame of the building to provide a contemporary feel to this existing building.
