CGJ Services were approached in July 2016 by Kavannagh Construction of Kings Heath, to provide design and installation of M&E services to the proposed extension to Sutton Coldfield Girls School, in conjunction with Holloway Foo Architects and Paul Ravenhall Consulting.
The extension will wrap around the existing dining area, which will be then be modified to opened up to provide a flexible space where 6th form students can relax in an informal environment, and form a link between the existing school and 6 new modern classrooms facilities.
The initial stage of the works for CGJ is the relocation of some existing electrical services and equipment, together with the removal of radiators and modification of pipework in the existing dining hall to enable commencement of the main construction.
The main works will have its own plantroom, allowing the installation of standalone heating and hot water plant, independent of the main building.
All areas will have LPHW heating via a mixture of LST radiators and fan convectors, LED lighting with daylight dimming as applicable, data and small power, and domestic water services to all sanitary appliances. Toilets will be complete with extract ventilation and internal spaces will have supply and extract ventilation with heat recovery, and intruder alarms and fire detection will be installed where required, with CCTV and external lighting covering the car park areas.
The project is due to be completed by Easter 2017.
