Dumfries Doctors Residence
Client: High Way Health (Project Co) Limited / Laing O’Rourke
Main Contractor: Story Contracting Limited
Consulting Engineer: NOVO / JBE
JBE have successfully completed the design and build contract for the new Doctors Residence which forms part of the Dumfries and Galloway Acute Services Redevelopment Project. We provided the full MEP Services to 104 bedrooms and communal living/kitchen accommodation spread over 3 floors. The project was completed in August 2017.
Mechanical Services include LTHW Heating, Air Conditioning, Mechanical and Heat Recovery Ventilation Systems, Domestic Hot & Cold Water, Foul Drainage, Rainwater, Automatic Controls and Wiring and Natural Gas.
Electrical Services include LV Distribution and Switchgear, Small Power, Internal Lighting, Emergency Lighting, External Lighting, CCTV, Access Control, Disabled Alarm Systems, Fire Alarm, Data, Induction Loops, Lightning Protection, Earthing and Bonding.
As part of our contract we had to provide a data rich Building Information Model (BIM) Level 2. This BIM model, along with externally sourced structural and architectural models worked together to ensure the closest control and management of a project before the installation began on site. The model produced by JBE shows the positioning, sizing and specification of each mechanical and electrical element within the building, from the air handling units in the roof void to a single electrical socket in a bedroom. This high level of detail allows different contractors to take information directly from the model and use where needed.
