Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) specialist, LJJ has completed three Nottinghamshire school projects for Kier Construction.

Delivered by the company’s recently-established Midlands office, the M&E schemes at Wainwright Primary Academy, Abbey Primary School, both in Mansfield and Holgate Primary School in Hucknall have a combined project value of £2.15 million. They form part of the Priority School Building Programme (PSBP), being delivered for the Education Funding Agency (EFA).

Each new school is built to a similar two-storey PSBP model, with 17 classrooms, including nursery provision, along with a sports/assembly/dining hall, full catering kitchen, reception area, admin area and welfare facilities.

All three mechanical installations involve new water and gas supplies to the building and the installation of two gas boilers for each school, along with an air handling unit for supply and extract to the toilet and admin areas. NVHR (natural ventilation heat recovery) units have been installed above the radiators in each classroom linked to CO2 sensors as part of a natural ventilation strategy and LJJ have installed a BMS (building management system) to control the plant room.

The electrical installation for each school includes new switchboard and mains distribution along with all small power, data and lighting, with PIR sensors installed for each classroom and toilet block. A fully programmable fire alarm system, CCTV, intruder alarm and access control have also been installed.
