Highland Museum Store - Case Study
Mechanical & Electrical Installation
Completed in September 2013, Korrie were appointed by Robertson Construction to install the mechanical and electrical services as part of the team responsible for the building the Highland Museum Store for The Highland Council.
The project was procured under a design and build contract with BREEAM excellence standards achieved through the design to meet the clients's requirements.
A wood pellet biomass boiler was installed to provide space heating, domestic hot water requirements and also temper the fresh air mechanically delivered throughout the building.
An internal pellet store was constructed within the building to contain the biomass boiler wood pellets. The heating system incorporated a constant temperature circuit serving heat recovery air handling units, unit heaters and a domestic hot water calorifier. A variable temperature circuit was installed to deliver heat to raft lighting and radiator installations.
Korrie installed the power, lighting, security, fire and data installations within the museum store.
The selection of the raft lighting units was made on the basis that both lighting provision and heat emission could be incorporated into a single unit. This exemplifies the benefits of a single M&E contractor and demonstrates the synthesis that can be achieved with building services through careful planning and quality design.
