The Global Underwater Hub is a cutting-edge research and innovation centre focused on underwater technology and subsea operations. Situated in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England, the hub required state-of-the-art mechanical and plumbing services for its new office space. Quora Group, a renowned engineering and construction firm, was chosen to handle the design and build of these critical systems.
The Global Underwater Hub needed a reliable partner to develop and install high-quality mechanical and plumbing services for their new office space. The project’s primary objectives included energy efficiency, sustainability, and compliance with industry regulations.
Why Quora Group?
Quora Group had a solid reputation for delivering top-tier engineering solutions in various sectors, including commercial and industrial projects. Their exceptional track record and expertise in designing and installing mechanical and plumbing systems made them the preferred choice for this project.
Key Steps and Achievements:
Quora Group’s team of skilled engineers conducted a thorough assessment of the Global Underwater Hub’s requirements. They devised a comprehensive design plan that incorporated energy-efficient HVAC systems, efficient plumbing layouts, and sustainability features such as intelligent heaters that can detect and open window / door, timed water heaters and High efficiency heat recovery units and VRF systems not only the selection of the services was deeply considered, but a great attention to layout had to be factored in, as all the mechanical services were “on show” and surface mounted, strategically positioned behind the likes of acoustic panels to not only aid in acoustics but also in overall aesthetics, once complete!
The mechanical and plumbing systems designed by Quora Group incorporated energy-saving technologies, such as heat recovery systems, and smart controls. This approach not only reduced the facility’s environmental footprint but will also result in long-term cost savings.
Quora Group implemented sustainable practices by designing plumbing systems that reduced water consumption and minimized waste.
Quora Group’s team of experienced technicians executed the installation with precision. Their attention to detail ensured that the mechanical and plumbing systems performed optimally from the very beginning, minimizing the need for future maintenance.
Rigorous testing and commissioning procedures were carried out to confirm that all systems functioned as designed. This thorough process guaranteed that the Global Underwater Hub’s office space had reliable and efficient mechanical and plumbing services.
During the project a great relationship was immediately built with both the main contractor and client, that led to a seamless transition from concept design, to completion.
