FES successfully delivered a major prefabrication package for this leading UK Bank within Edinburgh.

FES Prefabrication was involved at the early stages of the project utilising our digital engineering services for the design of the project. Our early involvement provided the opportunity to develop a prefabrication solution and programme in line with the client requirements. This involved the coordination of essential services e.g. electrical power supplies, ventilation systems, pipework and ancillary steel work support systems. 

The prefabrication works involved the manufacture of two plant rooms (green string and red string ), with all pipe work pre-fabricated using thin wall stainless steel pipe, in line with client life cycle policy requirements.

In addition to providing prefabricated solutions for the  mechanical systems, there was also requirement to provide a service for the data hall communication and power links. The prefabricated containment modules were fully coordinated in conjunction with the site electrical team requirements and supplied for both under floor and high level locations. The modules were supplied fully powdered coated with in the data hall areas in line with client requirements for prevention of carbon and zinc contamination to data cabinets.
