PUBLIC SECTORDWP Birmingham
Summer Hill Road development is a large office building in Birmingham City centre, refurbished for the Department of Works and Pensions. The building is divided into multiple units and is multi-tenanted, with the scope of the works for the project including half of the building; Unit 2, Unit 3, and back of house.
Loop Engineering were appointed to carry out detailed design of mechanical, electrical, and public health for these areas, as well as monitoring and support throughout the construction stage. The space consists of primarily open plan offices with some small areas of office rooms. Due to the warehouse-shape design of the building, the open plan areas have very large floor to ceiling heights. The ventilation strategy for the building was to refurbish the existing VAV system to work for the new layout and revised fresh air requirements.
