Engineering Excellence for a High-End Research Facility

A&S Mechanical Engineering was entrusted with the design and installation of complex mechanical systems in a cutting-edge research and development facility, focusing on a new toilet block, tea points, coffee bar, and a vast array of specialised process equipment. The project’s complexity lay in ensuring high-quality mechanical systems capable of serving the facility’s rigorous requirements.


  1. Specialised Process Equipment: The client’s specialised process equipment demanded meticulous coordination and a deep understanding of the required services.
  2. Complex Service Integration: The integration of multiple services, including high-output pumped drainage, hot and cold water, Category 5 boosted water, compressed air, and steam, posed a significant challenge.
  3. Procurement Risks: Dealing with high-end, specialised equipment required diligent communication with manufacturers to ascertain the exact service requirements and mitigate procurement risks.


A&S Mechanical Engineering provided a comprehensive solution to address these challenges:

  1. Service Coordination: Extensive coordination with the manufacturers of the 92 specialised pieces of equipment ensured that the mechanical systems met the stringent requirements for the facility’s day-to-day operations.
  2. Service Installation: To facilitate the specialised equipment, the installation included high-output pumped drainage, hot water, cold water, Category 5 boosted water, compressed air, and steam, all designed to perform reliably.


The project’s completion yielded the following outcomes:

  1. High Specification Systems: The complex mechanical systems met the high specifications required by the client, ensuring the facility’s smooth operation.
  2. Specialised Equipment Integration: The meticulous coordination and installation of specialised equipment services enabled the research facility to function efficiently.
  3. Risk Mitigation: Diligent communication and collaboration with equipment manufacturers minimised procurement risks and ensured that the equipment’s service requirements were met.

A&S Mechanical Engineering’s precision engineering and exceptional coordination efforts resulted in the successful integration of complex mechanical systems, serving the high-end research and development facility effectively. This case study underscores our commitment to delivering excellence in mechanical engineering, even in the face of the most challenging project requirements.
