Attention to Detail
PW’s M&E designers worked in conjunction with the Tate design team over a 6 month period to develop 2d and 3d design of the services general arrangements, plant-rooms and tight detail areas where the proposed services were installed into the existing listed building structure in the lower, principal and upper levels.
Whilst this was a very dedicated, sometimes difficult and time consuming process it has ensured that the outturn detail design and installation drawings provide the design team with sufficiently accurate information to satisfy them that what PW installed for the client at the end of stage 1A and 1B was exactly what the client expected. This attention to detail also ensured that the M&E services fitted into the restrictive building openings and could be safely and fully maintained at a later date
Crash decks and access platforms were used to replace the mechanical and electrical services within the ornate fibrous plaster ceiling, which were retained wherever possible due to the listed nature of the building
