McAndrew Martin fuels installation project

McAndrew Martin has successfully completed a major bulk fuel installation project in the South.

We designed a bespoke system to completely replace ageing diesel storage tanks and pipework at the Ministry of Defence site.

Our in-house Mechanical and Electrical Engineering division provided specialist expertise for the six new tanks and systems through Amey.

Its installation will generate greater efficiencies and enhanced capacity for the refuelling of military vehicles directly on site, and packaging of supplies for bases nationwide and for use in the field.

Based in Portsmouth with offices in London and Cambridge, we have six disciplines: Architecture, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Building Surveying, General Practice, and Project Management and Contract Administration.

Horace McAndrew, Director of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, said: “This was a complex project requiring the installation of bulk storage, pipework and management systems for significant volumes of fuel.

“One of the challenges was to lift the tanks into place in one piece, so we surveyed for ground stability and soil composition to ensure the cranes involved were safely positioned.

“The successful installation has enhanced the site’s capacity and performance, generated efficiencies and helped reduce its environmental impact.”

Horace added: “Our strong track record in MoD work and excellent professional relationship with Amey were key to the success of this project.

“We have considerable experience and expertise built up over many years in mechanical and electrical engineering, including the installation of fuel storage and related systems.

“Demand continues to grow nationwide as operators embrace new technology and take steps to reduce their carbon footprint.”

Horace and fellow director Barry Lee led the project for 40-strong McAndrew Martin.

Celebrating our 30th anniversary this year, we are ranked 87th in Building magazine’s annual Top 150 Consultants list in 2018.

Our head office is at the Acorn Business Centre in Northarbour Road, Portsmouth.

The MoD centre is in the South of England, although its exact location is not being identified.
