Historic achievement

Heritage assets have a huge role to play in regeneration but can result in many construction challenges, especially for mechanical and electrical contractors. Implementing modern services into an historic building, especially one that is listed, is challenging both in terms of design and installation. Each project will present its own set of hurdles depending on the type of building and its future use, so there is a wide range of factors to consider.

Tales of the RIVERBANK

Glasgow Life turned to IES Consulting to address issues concerning operational performance at the Riverside Museum, which is the city’s award-winning transport museum. It houses over 3,000 objects – from skateboards to locomotives, paintings to prams and cars to a Stormtrooper.

WHEN SILENCE IS GOLDEN

Fan coil units are a popular choice for engineers when selecting a reliable and efficient source of heating and cooling for a building. They do not require a large central plant to function and with simple proven, controllable technology and installation flexibility, they meet the demands of most commercial applications.
