Poyle 1, Slough

A two-and-a-half-acre brownfield site was cleared to provide the opportunity to develop a 43,500 sq. ft warehouse and headquarter office building within touching distance of Heathrow Airport.

The building was designed to achieve industry best practice in sustainable design and achieved an A rated Energy Performance Certificate and a BREEAM Very Good rating.

The proximity of the building to Heathrow Airport imposed onerous acoustic performance targets which significantly influenced the design of the building and building services to enable it to achieve acceptable internal acoustic performance within the office space. This included specific acoustic treatment to the building fabric and services penetrations to ensure compliance.

As the appointed Design and Build main contractor; Howard Russell Construction appointed Clark Degnan to provide MEP Contractor detailed design from RIBA Stage 4 onwards.

Clark Degnan were also appointed by the main contractor to provide regular site visits in their role as BREEAM Accredited Professional to help facilitate the Construction Stage BREEAM assessment gathering and achieve additional credits under the BREEAM assessment.

Clark Degnan Consulting Engineers were employed by Howard Russell Construction to undertake the full mechanical and electrical building services design for a large industrial project in Slough, London. The project itself comprised of two large industrial buildings situated on two nearby sites, both with fully fitted out offices and large storage facilities. Poyle 1 was also designed to achieve a BREEAM Very Good rating. In order to assist in achieving the projects BREEAM objectives, Craig Degnan of Clark Degnan Consulting Engineers was also appointed as a BREEAM Accredited Professional, and provided essential support to the site team. The service provided by Clark Degnan was exceptional; and their knowledge and experience from a BREEAM perspective was invaluable in achieving the buildings BREEAM rating. Clark Degnan provided support to all of the site based staff and their regular site attendance assisted in a smooth commissioning, witnessing and handover process. We would have no hesitation in recommending their services to others, and we hope to have the opportunity to work together again in the near future.
