CPS Building Services partnering with SDC undertook the entire Refurbishment of the M&E installation at ARM6 in Cambridge. The £1.5m mechanical, electrical and plumbing installation is part of a series of projects CPS has delivered for SDC and our overall client, ARM.
The building comprises of a mixture of offices, meeting areas and social spaces with a multitude of building services including fresh air plant, VRF cooling & heating, power, data and AV installations.
The project was awarded to CPS as a complete design and build project taking a concept design and working up with the architect a modern, vibrant and open place to work of which the client was most impressed.
Specific to this installation is a highly intelligent asset tracking lighting system which not only is daylight linked and absence detected, it tracks specific assets in and around the building. The information is then fed back and reviewed at the end of the year so the client can ascertain if certain rooms / areas / meeting rooms are used more than others. This way the client knows what to strengthen in their future buildings. On completion the project underwent a rigorous testing and commissioning process which ARM were party to the sign off ensuring their staff could move in and work from day one upon taking occupancy.
