McGill were appointed by Ogilvie Construction Ltd to supply and install the M&E Services to the new build student accommodation blocks at Murano Place, Edinburgh consisting of blocks A & B providing 278 beds, common rooms and a management suite.

We successfully completed the works in only 36 weeks with over 40 electricians, plumbers and heating engineers employed on site at the peak of the Contract.

We used our in-house design team to produce the drawings in REVIT MEP Software. This allowed us to fully coordinate the Services and to develop 3D Modelling for the Plant Room. The pipework for the Plant Room was fabricated off-site reducing the installation time and improving quality.

McGill Fire & Security were appointed to design, supply, install and commissioning all of the Fire & Security systems servings the 2 blocks.

LED luminaires were installed throughout the development as a measure to achieve the SBEM calculation for monthly energy use and carbon dioxide emissions.

The M&E Work Package included specialist sub-contractors for systems including the, Television and ICT Installations.
