Wholesale Outlet Stax Trade Centres Manchester
Having worked on all previous projects beginning in 1996, we have developed with STAX Trade Centres, Mechanical & Electrical installations that create an environment to meet the high expectations of both staff and customers.
Having purchased a new site opposite their existing Manchester branch in Autumn 2007 a new 100,000 sq ft warehouse doubled the size of the existing facility.
STAX opened the new branch for business in the summer of 2009. The new building benefits from a modern cost efficient energy management system, with improved natural light to reduce energy costs and carbon emissions.
This particular contract involved the full Design & Build of the complete Electrical & Mechanical services, including Mains & Sub Main Distribution, UPS System, General/Emergency Lighting, Exterior Lighting, Fire Detection, ICT Installations, High Velocity Ventilation, VRF Air Conditioning.
The main criteria for the project was to achieve an efficient and flexible M&E design within the warehouse, giving a light and airy feel for customers, but with the aim of reducing energy consumption. To achieve this goal an intelligent dimmable daylight linking high rack lighting scheme was developed allowing for utilising the natural daylight especially during the summer months. Strategically placed sensors were sited both externally and internally to monitor the daylight conditions which process the information and automatically alter the internal light levels accordingly.
Programme 30 Weeks
We also completed the M&E works on the new STAX Birmingham contract in 2001 on the 70,000 sqft purpose built warehouse, and also the M&E works on the new 78,000 sq ft Leeds branch in 2006 which with the new Manchester branch made it one of the biggest cash and carry outlets in the country.
