Hangar 76 is an existing 3,224m2 facility which formed part of a regeneration programme to the existing military airfield at Trenchard Lines, Upavon
Services Design Solution was appointed to undertake the detailed design of the Building Services associated with the reinstatement of the Hangar.
A survey of existing Hangar lighting verified that the existing lighting was beyond its serviceable life and a complete replacement was necessary
We designed a new lighting scheme incorporating high efficiency T5 fluorescent luminaires, incorporating lighting controls with presence detection dimming and daylight savings
By adopting this strategy, we were able to reduce installation costs by £30K, with reduced operational cost over the life of the designed lighting system. Enhanced fire risk due to the storage of aircraft in the building requiring an increased level of detection of a fire alarm system to satisfy the Client Insurers and the site Fire Office
Key aspects of the design in the Hangar requiring particular
We designed a suitable distribution system incorporating metering of electrical services in accordance with the requirements of Part L of the Building Regulations including centralised monitoring of the metering results
There was insufficient power to meet the electrical load to the Hangar, therefore new site mains including the upgrade of the HV network, was designed and installed under the Contract
Throughout the project we were in dialogue with the Client, Building Surveyor, Structural Engineer, CDMC and Fire Officer to enable us to agree a fully compliant and cost effective design package including the preparation of final layouts, sizing of Building Services and the production of full specification and drawings including Designers Risk Assessments
This lighting proposal has now been adopted for all future developments on the site.
