This scheme saw Barlows M&E produce a full design, from concept, of both the mechanical and electrical elements for a busy ‘The Car People’ showroom. Working closely with Caddick Construction we managed to deliver an efficient and elegant system. Whilst the front of house showroom required a clean stylish characteristic the back of house had to maintain a visually pleasing, whilst practical, work area for the production line. From a mechanical engineering viewpoint the ‘showpiece’ of the installation was the air handling unit and subsequent ductwork providing both heating and cooling to the showroom.
Electrically this project required extensive design to produce a fully functioning installation which included general power, lighting to a very detailed illumination specification. Fully monitored fire and life safety systems, fully monitored CCTV and security systems and an IT and PA system incorporating the main building and a very large external sales area.
Within the main showroom the emphasis was on aesthetics, with the end result being reached through close and continual consultation with the client.
“It’s great to have another happy customer and project over the line. Despite the many obstacles such an undertaking can bring, the engineers worked tirelessly to ensure this installation was accomplished. The overall team effort is what made this scheme so successful”
