TNG is delighted to be carrying out feasibility services for a construction project at Regents Park Community College in Southampton, on behalf of Southampton City Council with Faithful+Gould, Southampton.

Upgrades

The College in King Edward Avenue in Shirley has an OFSTED ‘good’ rating. It is carrying out several upgrades to its teaching facilities. Works shall include the creation and upgrade of the Science rooms, the alteration and creation of a new Technology department and an external Sports Changing facility.

Concept Design

Our Engineers are carrying out a feasibility study for the works. This includes surveys of the existing services, and concept design of the Mechanical and Electrical services to RIBA Stage 2.

TNG has been enlisted by CBRE Limited to carry out a condition survey for an office building in Rugby, Warwickshire.

Mechanical Services

We were instructed to assess the condition of the Mechanical engineering plant and systems at Cemex House for CEMEX UK Operations Limited.

Condition Survey

Our team of experts carried out a non-invasive survey of the systems within the 9-storey office building.  They then produced a comprehensive report detailing the current condition of the existing engineering services to submit to the Client. The report contained information relating to the required and recommended remedial works. It also detailed the expected life span of the systems and budget costs for their upgrade to help future planning.

TNG is delighted to be working with Radian Group Limited again on two more central boiler house upgrade projects.

Boiler House Design

The works at Orchard Terrace in Alton, & Tyrell Court in Southampton, comprise full duties detailed design, tender analysis and on-site duties. TNG shall be Principal Designer on both of these schemes.

Tender Specifications

Work has started with a detailed survey of the existing installations at both facilities. This will be followed by the detailed design of systems that may include replacement heating boilers, pumps, HWS calorifiers, controls, valves, gas detection, insulation, cladding, flues, LV electrical distribution boards, containment, plantroom lighting and power.

Radian group shall issue the tender specifications and mechanical and electrical services drawings produced by our team to the tendering companies. Work is due to start on-site in August; during this stage, TNG shall carry out regular site visits, snagging, witness testing and handover.

Summer Works

TNG has already been working with Radian Group this summer on two other projects due to finish in August. The first at Doreen Welfare House, Eastleigh and the second at Oak Lodge, Bordon, both included boiler and calorifier upgrades.

We are delighted to have recently handed over a new MRI Suite at Jersey General Hospital.

MRI Scanner

The project, in St Helier, Jersey, involved the Engineering Services and Builders Work associated with the fit-out of a new MRI extension shell that was to become a fully functioning and compliant MRI scanner facility.

The project was divided into two contracts. The first included the alteration and remodelling of the existing Radiology department to afford the space needed for the scanner’s ancillary functions.

TNG carried out a survey of the existing facility and its engineering services and provided full duties M&E detailed design for the new MRI suite. The design and construction was phased in order to allow continuity of service and minimise the impact of the works.

Client Advisor

The second contract involved us acting as the Employer’s Agent and Client Advisor for the turnkey MRI installation. Our Engineers produced the Employer’s Requirements and M&E engineering documents and drawings for this phase. We were also responsible for reviewing the Contractor’s design proposals and subsequently, the progress and quality of the MRI equipment installation.

Halo Lighting

We were especially pleased to help deliver this important scheme because of the cutting-edge technology used. The MRI equipment that was installed, included a state-of-the-art Philips Halo lighting system. The specialist lighting system helps to soothe and keep patients calm and still during the scan. Coloured lights and projections are emitted in order to create a tranquil atmosphere that makes the procedure less unsettling.

Successful Installation

The MRI department in Jersey is one of a few in Europe, outside of private practice, to use this type of lighting system to enhance the patient experience. We are therefore, really pleased to have played a part in the successful installation of this equipment. It will bring comfort to many island patients in the future.

TNG is excited to start work on the redevelopment of an existing 2-storey commercial/residential building in the heart of Southampton.

New Build Scheme

The £2.2M new build shall comprise a ground floor restaurant with an additional 4 floors of residential apartments on top. TNG will be providing mechanical and electrical performance specifications, outline drawings and contractor design checks.

TNG is pleased to have been selected to provide full duties detailed design for a replacement MRI Air Handling Unit (AHU) at Poole Hospital.

Tender Drawings

Work shall include a survey of the existing installation and infrastructure. We shall also prepare calculations for the new plant capacities, detailed design of the AHU replacement and the tender package that shall be issued by Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

TNG shall also be Principal Designer on this project.

Work will start soon on a feasibility report for the replacement of the existing cooling chiller at Weymouth Community Hospital.

Principal Designer

Working for the client, Dorset Healthcare University NHS Foundation Trust, TNG shall be Principal Designer under CDM Regulations 2015. We shall provide a feasibility study including a detailed mechanical and electrical survey, load and capacity calculations and an option appraisal and report.

TNG is pleased to start working on a brand new leisure centre in Broadbridge Heath on behalf of client, Neilcott Construction Limited.

Consultation

Horsham District Council shall be constructing a new multi-million pound sports and leisure centre at Horsham, to replace the existing Broadbridge Heath Leisure Centre.

Following extensive consultation with users, stakeholders and the community, the Council agreed to the go-ahead for the new £12M sports and leisure centre in December last year.

Sports and Leisure

The development will deliver the largest public “dry-side” sports and leisure facility in the area.

TNG is honoured to provide full-duties detail design for two exciting new RNLI lifeboat stations.

Lifeboat Stations

The first in Newlyn, Cornwall, will replace the existing Penlee lifeboat station. The new 2-storey construction, designed by Studio Four Architects, shall be constructed on the existing site. It will provide much-needed additional space for the team.

Once constructed, the new lifeboat station will feature large high-level windows that will help the RNLI to survey Newlyn Harbour and well beyond.

This project is due to start on site in the spring 2018, and work is already underway in our office.

Boathouse

The second project will provide a new-build lifeboat station and boathouse at the RNLI Wells–next–the–Sea facility, located on the North Norfolk coast of England.

The new boathouse will be built to house the station’s newly acquired Shannon-class lifeboat and her launching carriage. The new boathouse will also accommodate the Wells’ inshore lifeboat, crew and workshop facilities.

Shannon Lifeboat

The Shannon lifeboat will replace the existing Wells’ Mersey-class lifeboat, Doris M Mann of Ampthill, which is nearing the end of its RNLI service life. The new Shannon-class vessel is designed to reach emergencies more quickly and more safely than its predecessor. It is the first RNLI all-weather lifeboat to be powered by waterjets rather than conventional propellers. These give the craft speed, shallow draft and unmatched agility whilst still being able to cope with the roughest conditions.

Virtual Modelling

The Wells-next-the-Sea project shall run concurrently with the Penlee scheme, with both lifeboat stations due to hand-over this time next year. Both schemes will be delivered utilising 3D design models in order to construct the builds virtually during the design stage. This will support the smooth and efficient construction of both facilities and reduce the risk of any on-site delays.

Robust and Efficient

Visits to site have been a pleasure; the scenery in both locations is stunning. However, the excellent but serious work carried out in order to save lives, is never far from our minds.

We are honoured to be able to help provide robust and efficient facilities that will enable the crew perform to the very best of their ability.

We will be pleased to provide updates on both project as they progress.

This year, TNG was pivotal to the successful delivery of several Operating Theatres at Jersey General Hospital, in the Channel Islands.

Operating Theatres

Work first began in 2014 on the designs for Theatres 5 & 6. Two new Operating Theatres were created, complete with new primary Mechanical and Electrical engineering services and infrastructure. They were constructed within a new 3-storey extension to Block B, 1960’s Wing. The lower and upper ground floor provided plant space for the new theatres located on the top floor.

Phased Works

The creation of the new theatres enabled pairs of existing theatres to be upgraded, without affecting clinical delivery. The subsequent phase involved the staged replacement of mechanical ventilation plant and associated electrical supplies in Theatres 1 to 4. It also included the full refurbishment of Theatres 3 and 4, including new ultra clean ventilation canopies.

Full Duties Design

TNG provided full-duties design of the Mechanical and Electrical engineering services for both contracts. All works were completed in August this year, on time and within budget. Throughout both phases, works were carried out within an existing live estate, therefore all facilities serving other areas had to remain fully operational throughout construction.

TNG was delighted to be able to exercise its expertise and help with the successful delivery of such a critical service at the hospital in Jersey.
