Project Objectives

Key Integrated Services were awarded the contract to provide the Mechanical & Electrical Services in 2017.

The services we provided included:

· Air Handling Units

· Pumps and Pressurisation Systems

· Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Systems

· Water Treatment and Legionella Control

· Minor Building fabric maintenance

· Lighting Systems

· Building Management System

· Statutory inspection and testing

· 24/24/7/365 Reactive and emergency repairs


As the facility is operational 24 hours a day, to ensure minimal disruption and maximum uptime of assets, Key Integrated Services assigned a number of engineering maintenance operatives who have a strong understanding of the building’s environment allowing them to provide speed of response and first-hand knowledge of the critical assets.

It is imperative that the critical HVAC assets are maintained to ensure the comfort levels are maintained for the employees 24/7/365 days per annum, whilst ensuring no impact or detriment to the production and distribution facilities.


The provision of a 24/7/365 proactive maintenance service for our client and the building users.
