St Mary Axe, London

ACTS has been involved in numerous fit-out contracts at the iconic 30 St Mary’s Axe

A current project which we are undertaking for our client involves the complete
refurbishment of tenant occupiable space on the 30th floor. The design brief involves
reconfiguration of all M&E services to suit the new architectural layout which include:
• Re-configuration of the addressable lighting control system
• Re-positioning of the modular LV power systems to suit the new furniture layout
• Installation of temporary fire alarm and voice evacuation system during reconfiguration
works of the main systems
• Full communications server room renewal inclusive of fibre optic interlinking between
client occupied floors
• Fan coil unit repositioning and re-configuration to serve the new layout
• Alterations to the existing sprinkler system to ensure system coverage is maintained

Forth Valley College, Weir & Mezzanine - Falkirk

As part of the campus re-development at Falkirk’s Forth Valley College, the
Middlefield building was due to be demolished. The staff that were based within
this section of the campus had to be relocated to the main building. Two areas
within the main campus area were designated to be refurbished. The mezzanine
block which was within the main brick built building and the weir block which was
an externally mounted 2 storey purpose built portakabin.
Both areas were stripped of all existing mechanical and electrical services as
they were deemed to have expired their lifespan. New services including electrical
heating, power, lighting, ventilation and water services were installed to suit the new
architectural floorplan. The main electrical supply distribution was also modified
as the existing electrical storage heating system was supplied from an off peak
metered switchboard. A complete new addressable fire alarm system was aslo to
cover these areas as well as the main college building.

to provide detailed design for the M&E services for the extension project at
Pebblebrook Primary School.
As part of our works we were responsible for the design of classroom lighting,

same automatic controls logic as the rest of the school.
