240 Blackfriars Road

Location – 240 Blackfriars Road
Client – Mace Ltd
Consultant – Hilson Moran Partnership
Completion – December 2014

Squire Energy have recently completed project including gas network reinforcement, new infrastructure in the public highway, gas services and multiple primary meters serving this prestigious new development near London, Waterloo. The building comprises some 20 storeys / 28,500 sq. m. of office accommodation, a gymnasium, retail units and a number of residential apartments.

We were responsible for the development of fit for purpose proposals, working alongside Hilson Moran Partnership, the project consultant and all liaison with the incumbent gas network owner, design approvals, procurement and installation of all new upstream gas infrastructure along Blackfriars Road, large diameter high level welded steel offtakes to within the building, to serve the main plant room, together with further offtakes to serve a number of retail units and new apartments. The works also included the design, construction, provision and installation of a number of large commercial primary gas meter modules and BEMS interface facility.

Although, due to the location, busy highway and numerous other ongoing construction and mechanical services works, the project was extremely challenging, yet rewarding. Mace Ltd, our customer was very pleased with our unique and focussed approach, commenting that the gas utility services were not only completed on time and to budget but in such a friendly yet professional manner that they looked forward to working with Squire Energy again in the future.
