Beckfoot School – HVAC & Compliance Review

As an initial project, Energy & Technical Services attended site and completed an initial survey of the existing HVAC systems following numerous complaints of heating issues. The survey included an inspection of O&M information, a non-intrusive inspection of HVAC plant and equipment as well as analysis of the BeMS. On completion, a detailed report was issued containing information on the suitability of the plant, current plant condition, standard of maintenance and BeMS strategy.

Following this, we carried out a desktop-based analysis of the existing ‘as fitted’ drawings and supplementary documentation provided to identify if the installed ventilation systems met the Department of Education Design & Build standards and regulations guidelines. The survey covered a pre-selected area of the school identified by our Technical Energy Centre (TEC) as poor performing.

Challenge

Both reports were presented to various stakeholders including school Governors, Teachers, M&E contractors and Department of Education Consulting representatives, therefore, the information presented needed to be easy to read and understandable for a technical & non-technical audience.

Added Value / Achievements

The client was provided with a better understanding of how the HVAC system works and its limitations along with a detailed review of the current condition of the plant and controls. Recommended action points, remedial works and solutions were also presented to resolve the heating issues identified.
