PQQ- Design & Build
The new facility (circa 2,500m2 incl. Nursery and SMA) will cater for the long-term educational needs of Braidside Integrated Primary School’s 440 pupils and replaces existing facilities at Fry’s Road, Ballymena.
Thomas Hanna & Co Ltd were responsible for the installation of all mechanical services for Braidside Integrated Primary School. The scope of the project was design and build and this allowed the County Fermanagh-based firm to fully employ the knowledge and experience gained over 50-plus years working in all sectors of the industry. “We worked alongside the consultant engineer ISD and project team to develop and deliver a sustainable installation solution for the mechanical services based on the outline specification,” says Martin Hanna, Managing Director of Thomas Hanna & Co Ltd. The school’s design had a flat roof, which meant a reduced space for containment. “Along with our team members, Braham Electrical and Knox Clayton Architects, we coordinated our combined services to maximise the available space providing a suitable solution that allowed for maintenance and future expansion if required,” says Martin. “This ensured any potential clash was addressed and amended prior to works commencing on site, ensuring a trouble-free installation. “To date we have partnered with Glasgiven Contracts on six projects and are looking forward to partnering with them again.”
