ICS’ £1 million hat trick
Adelaide House near London Bridge remained fully operational during a year-long installation of a new building-management system and associated equipment by Integrated Control Systems.
Integrated Control Systems has recently completed work on three contracts totalling over £1 million. The are all in prestigious buildings close to one another in central London and involved the design and installation of new or refurbished building-management systems. The refurbishment project at Vintners’ Place in Upper Thames Street involved re-using as many components as possible from the existing system of 380 outstations. The 12-week project involved removing and replacing all BMS hardware. Sensors, valves and control panels were retained and refurbished in situ and interfaced with new replacement equipment. Detailed planning was required as the multi-tenanted building remained occupied and all works had to be carried out without disrupting tenants. Adelaide House, an art deco building near London Bridge, also remained operational throughout the year-long ICS project, which involved installing a new BMS, terminal-unit controllers on fan-coil units and associated panels for controlling new M&E plant. This contract alone was worth over £450 000. The project in new headquarters premises for HVB Bank on five floors of the Moorhouse building on London Wall involved designing and installing systems to provide round-the-clock control of systems serving dealing rooms on two floors. It involved the creation of a new chilled-water system for tenants and integrating a Tridium open system with the landlord’s chilled-water and conditioned-air supplied and dedicated ventilation systems.
