This was a fascinating and interesting project to be involved with. Monkfield Nutrition is the leading breeder and supplier of insects in the marketplace. They purpose built a new insect breeding facility which required specialist Mechanical services. Ventilation, temperature was paramount to the success of this new breeding facility. Working closely with Sharman and Grimwade the design consultant on the project, a combination of radiant and convection heating supplemented by a ventilation system capable of simultaneously heating and cooling different room spaces, depending on the type of insect was developed.
To keep the project finish date on track a prefabricated packaged plantroom was provided , this included a combination of bio mass and oil fired heating plant , invertor driven pumps, buffer vessel and fully monitored control system. With this being a specialist project the commissioning period was extensive and involved fine tuning the controls to over 100 different rooms.
