Manned 24 hour Call-out Service

Slater Steps

Client: Slater Steps
Project length: 3 weeks
Completion date: December 23
HF divisions involved:
Plumbing, Heating & AC

Brief project description: 21-23 Slater’s Steps is a fully refurbished, open plan office space in Edinburgh, boasting double height ceilings that provide excellent natural light.  As part of the sites refurbishment, HF were called in to compete the electrical work including the install of a new power supply, containment and LED lighting.

As a leading electrical contractor, our experience of working in office refurbishments meant that the installation of new electrical wiring and power supply went without a hitch.

air to air heat pump as part of office refurbishment

As part of the initial project requirements, we were asked to upgrade the offices existing electric panel heaters. However, after our team had completed a site survey, we advised the client that they would be better off taking advantage of a new air to air heat pump system.  This would provide a far more comfortable office environment all year round and benefit the office space greatly over the heating system that they had originally wanted to refurbish. Air to air heat pumps are advanced, efficient heating and cooling systems that provide effortless temperature control for maximum comfort.  They are also very energy efficient which will help the office to reduce their energy consumption whilst also helping to improve the air quality within the open plan office.

The new containment was utilised to install 4 x new Daikin ceiling mounted AC indoor units that our Mechanical team fitted to provide the site with energy efficient heating and cooling all year round.

Further green energy solutions were implemented including LED lighting upgrade work. The new LED lighting means that the refurbished office now benefits from superior lighting that is also more energy efficient, helping to further cut down on the sites yearly energy consumption.

Project Challenges: As with any project of this scope, the biggest challenge was working around other contractors.

Scotwood Interiors were responsible for the fit-out fabric works and our electricians and mechanical engineers successfully worked alongside them to ensure that all the electrical and mechanical work was completed to set schedules that would allow the office decorating to proceed without any delays.

Our clients satisfaction is always a sign that we have done a good job and with this project, the client was so pleased with the quality of our work that our fire & security engineers have already been contracted to replace the offices existing alarm system with a new and improved one.
