Office and co-working space
Designing an office building today is like creating a time capsule.
It must contain advanced technologies, create a positive environment and influence workers’ productivity, is easily transformed for various uses and be carbon neutral or may produce a surplus of energy. There are two areas where our engineers obtain the experience and exercise their creative minds: new office centres and hubs, and reviving and upgrading of existing building systems.
Featured Project: North Lincolnshire Council Offices Extension
The project is a £5.7 million remodelling of a North Lincolnshire Council building. Building located in the centre of Scunthorpe on Church Square will benefit from a new three-storey extension. This will enable the council to transform the way it works based on an agile workforce delivering services designed around residents.
The Council’s new town centre offices are already creating construction jobs and will save local taxpayers £375,000 a year.
Council’s aim is to strategically downsize to more efficient, environmentally friendly and productive premises.
CDI has delivered the technical design for MEP services working for a contractor. The whole job was executed in Revit, with BIM deliverables, in a fully coordinated model with the project delivery team. This allowed us to reduce the delivery programme, eliminate clashes between services and enhance coordination between the disciplines
The Council has put a strong emphasis on the sustainability and energy efficiency of the building and our engineer's incorporated innovative measures without compromising on comfort.
The hybrid ventilation system was designed to provide natural ventilation, secure nighttime cooling and boosted levels of ventilation during summer.
Heating is provided via Air Source Heat Pumps controlled and monitored by the BMS system. All utilities are metered and monitored by the facilities management team.
