Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning
Energy conscious system selection and attention to detail makes Chorley + Bisset a leader in developing appropriate heating, ventilating and air conditioning solutions. These systems often dominate the energy requirements of the building, and so matching the HVAC system to the character of the building requires particular care. Our objective is to create technical solutions to efficiently satisfy current design requirements while providing flexibility for the future.
Plumbing and Medical Gases
Chorley + Bisset designers are experienced in a wide range of piping requirements for potable and non-potable liquid systems, gas piping systems and specialized drainage systems for laboratories and industrial applications. This includes medical gas systems, one of the more demanding and specialized fields. We have completed numerous specialized piping projects in health care, academic and industrial facilities.
Fire Alarm and Suppression
Fire and life safety systems are important components of the Mechanical and Electrical infrastructure in a building. Our broad knowledge and experience in the engineering of fire alarm, sprinkler and standpipe systems enables us to design appropriate and dependable alarm and suppression systems.
It is essential that normal power and emergency power systems be thoroughly designed to maximize reliability. Design and development of these services requires a thorough understanding of the variables that influence the systems. Our Electrical team has the depth of experience, training and skills needed to design practical and reliable power systems.
Building lighting design needs to be practical, creative, and occasionally dramatic. Lighting designers must balance these objectives with the pace of developments in lighting technology. For lighting design, we routinely utilize computerized lighting design tools to achieve the desired illumination levels and quality. Our aim is to provide lighting that complements the architectural vision through efficient and imaginative lighting design.
Communication and Security Systems
The rapid evolution of communication technologies and the increased demand for data security have created interesting challenges for electrical designers. Engineering of IT systems has developed into one of our key areas of activity. Through involvement in demanding security projects such as courthouses, police headquarters, data centres, specialized laboratories and animal research facilities, we have developed comprehensive capabilities in the engineering of security systems.
Building Energy Analysis
Energy management and building energy analysis are priorities in our design of Mechanical and Electrical systems. We have completed numerous energy audits and follow-up energy implementations in buildings. These projects feed valuable technical information back into our design activities.
