Royal seal of approval for £369m revamp

New contracts have recently been awarded for Buckingham Palace’s £369m M&E refurbishment programme.
Six leading firms have won the contracts to oversee the 10-year project: Arcadis, Arup, Capita, Gleeds, Mace and WSP.
According to Construction News, the work comes after a report warned that the palace faces a ‘very real danger of catastrophic failure leading to fire or flood’ because of outdated electrics, power and water systems.
Under the programme, around 161 km of electrical cabling, 32 km of heating pipework and 16 km of hot and cold water pipework are among the services that will be replaced.
At McAndrew Martin, professionals in our Mechanical and Electrical Engineering department always keep up to date with the latest industry developments and best practice to ensure we continue to deliver the highest quality of service.
The division, led by Director Horace McAndrew, offers services in mechanical and electrical engineering, renewable and sustainable solutions, energy efficiency, building management control systems, fire and emergency lighting design, asset data management, preventative maintenance planning, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning.
Mechanical and Electrical Engineering is one of our six directorates. The others are Architecture, Building Surveys, General Practice, Project Management and Contract Administration, and Structural Engineering.
Our expert and experienced professionals have also carried out conservation and surveying work at Buckingham Palace so we know the building well.
We were instructed to undertake quadrennial inspections of the Palace along with other historic properties, Windsor Castle, The Tower of London and Horse Guards Parade.
As a multi-disciplinary firm with national reach, we can offer a seamless service to meet any or all of your needs whether it is a multi-million pound refurbishment of a historic building or a smaller design and build project locally.
