Quartzelec delivers all M&E engineering elements for the Windermere Jetty Museum
As with any major project, there is always a requirement to bring in specialist expertise and skills, and in this instance the mechanical and electrical installation elements of the prestigious and world-class Windermere Jetty Museum of Boats, Steam and Stories project were undertaken by Quartzelec, a leading independent engineering service provider which itself has a long, prestigious and illustrious heritage.
Quartzelec’s contracting business secured the £1.4m M&E elements of this heritage project and one of its initial tasks in working alongside the main contractor Thomas Armstrong (Construction) Ltd was to develop and present the client with significant M&E engineering savings to help ensure the project was affordable.
In addition to fitting out the main electrical distribution switch room, Quartzelec’s involvement included all the power and mechanical plant requirements plus the low energy lighting installation that complies with today’s rigorous build codes. External lighting around the site, an integrated building management solution, along with fire alarm, CCTV and data systems were also part of the remit along with the heating and the cooling systems; the hot and cold water and the required sanitary ware; gas and utilities provision; ventilation; plus, above ground drainage.
“This has been a fascinating, challenging and rewarding project from the outset,” stated Quartzelec's Managing Director of Contracting - Stephen Morrison. “We are well experienced in delivering both new build as well as heritage and complex conservation projects, with all the necessary compliances. It’s never just about working to a budget; envisioning a quality solution that will stand the test of time and continue to meet the needs of generations to come is paramount. The design and quality implementation we’ve helped deliver here is evident throughout every aspect of the new museum and should bring enjoyment to millions for many decades to come.”
