Marks & Spencer, Newry – New Build Store and Foodhall
Delap & Waller were appointed by Marks and Spencer’s to provide M&E Engineering Services Consultancy to deliver a new build project at The Quays Development, Newry.
The project was a new build 36,000sqft retail store over two floors. The store consisted of General Merchandise, Food hall, Cafe Area and Staff Areas.
We were involved from the shell development through the fit out stage to the project completion.This provided a continuity of design for the development as services requirements were able to be designed out at an early stage.
Working as part of the design team along with WDR-RT Taggart, we completed the design in Autodesk Revit and the project was contained a high level of information and a high level of detail .
The project was fully co-ordinated with clash detection and resolution using Navisworks and meetings held by the design team.
The key aspect to this project from a services perspective was primarily the lighting design and HVAC to ensure the that the environment conditions. The Foodhall refrigeration cabinets are open case, therefore careful design considerations had to be given to maintain ambient temperatures within the Foodhall, while not spoiling the product from overheating.
Our full M&E services design package included the following elements:
- HVAC Installations
- Public Health Services including foul drainage
- Building Management System
- Plant wiring
- IT Services infrastructure
- Lighting services including emergency lighting
- Small power
- Automatic fire alarm
During the 12 week fit-out period our remit was to check quality, ensure compliance with specifications and to report on progress of the services installations to our Client. Prior to handover we verified the commissioning of all the services system and installations.
