Scroll through some of our case studies detailing our biggest challenges and successes...
The Hoover Building is one of the UK’s finest examples of Art Deco architecture. It has been a landmark on the outskirts of London since its construction in 1932. Having been home to the Hoover Company for more than 50 years, the site was also used to manufacture electrical aircraft components during WW2 (at which time the entire building was coated in camouflage colours and netting).
Not only is the site Grade II listed, it is also 'of special historic interest'. This meant that any refurbishment work carried out by Tesco and EIC was subject to scrutiny from many government agencies, including English Heritage.
The project centred on the creation of two new office blocks on the prestigious race track at Brooklands estate in Surrey. Once the buildings were completed, new businesses would bring more jobs to the local area.
In accordance with government legislation, the estate had to meet the energy saving requirements set by BREEAM. As a design-build project, EIC worked with the client, architects and builders to deliver two first-class office buildings.
EIC deliver hard services (planned preventative and reactive maintenance) and installation project works for 34 SAHA sites located throughout the north and central regions.
We are moving into the sixth year of our close working relationship with SAHA. The contract covers traditional PPM with reactive maintenance. In addition we provide comprehensive cover alongside the traditional stables of PPM and 24/7 cover.
In this challenging but rewarding environment EIC are committed to working in partnership to ensure the effective operation of the SAHA estate.
A new 5,000 seat stadium was pre-designed and built at Alexander Stadium, Birmingham. The new arena contained a concessions area, offices and gymnasium. To ensure a sustainable development, an environmental strategy was created which incorporated the conservation of fuel and power and the monitoring of energy performance. This, together with low carbon choices and offsets, generated a low carbon footprint for the building with no reduction in the high quality services for the client.
The EIC team worked closely with Thomas Vale's Engineering Consultants Van Zyl & de Villiers (VZDV) to maximise the potential for energy efficiency and sustainability.
EIC were appointed by main contractor, ISG to install the UK’s most innovative heat recovery system. The award winning initiative – to use energy recovered from the crematorium and used to supplement the heating system at the neighbouring Abbey Stadium Leisure Centre and pool in Redditch – is set to be one of the most efficient heat recovery schemes in the country.
EIC work in partnership with main contractor, Vinci Construction to complete the design and installation of M&E services to meet BREEAM requirements and energy efficient standards.
The landmark city centre pub, The Varsity, which sits within The George Hotel has been taken over by the University of Wolverhampton and converted into modern administration offices for the University.
EIC were awarded the contract for the new design and build project for the University of Wolverhampton to convert the existing ‘George Hotel’ into new administration offices for the university. The three storey building is separated from the university’s MA building by an alleyway and has been redelivered to provide a new recreation area, café, shop, meeting rooms and office areas.
In partnership with main contractor Wilmott Dixon, EIC were selected to deliver a 21st century educational facility. The task was to create a building that was a learning hub for all. Somewhere that could be both formal and informal, both business-like and welcoming; a special place for children, staff, parents and the community.
Addenbrooke’s Treatment Centre is an £85 million treatment centre in Cambridge. The building is located on Cambridge Biomedical Campus and is a real centre of excellence, bringing together clinical services and research under one roof.
EIC were chosen by main contractor, Longcross Construction, to assist with the refurbishment of an existing medicine testing facility in Park Royal London, including an extension of new wards to enable the facility to have additional testing capacity.
This was a mechanical, electrical, design and build project which consisted of a number of tasks, from the removal of existing gas chillers to an upgraded Sky network throughout the research centre. This challenging project required welding of pipework in the records department, which meant the freezing of existing pipe work to enable existing supplies to remain operational during the refurbishment, as well as access control heating.
ISIS, based at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory near Oxford, is a world-leading centre for research into physical and life sciences.
The laboratory supports a national and international community of more than 2000 scientists allowing research into subjects ranging from clean energy and the environment, pharmaceuticals and health care, through to nanotechnology, materials engineering and IT.
Charlotte Street Hotel is a fashionable 52-room hotel situated in London’s media quarter, just a short walk from Soho Square. This converted property is now a chic, high-end establishment which includes superb facilities including a guest drawing room, a library and a state of the art screening room.
The interior of the hotel was designed by owner and award winning designer, Kit Kemp.
The Chancery Court Hotel is a stunning five-star hotel set within the walls of a magnificent Edwardian building. Located in one of London’s most famous areas - High Holborn. The building is ‘listed’ with English Heritage and features lavish interiors.
The striking building was created using materials such as Cuban mahogany and seven types of marble (including extremely rare types such as Swedish Green and Statuary). The most prominent feature of the building is the Renaissance-style Grand Staircase which is created entirely from marble. Due to the historic nature of the property, all work carried out was done under the supervision of English Heritage.
During this three year project, EIC totally refurbished the mechanical and electrical installation of the medieval castle, church and private areas on St Michael’s Mount. Working on a National Trust property brings unique challenges in the form of regulation and other specific requirements. In this case, the main issue was the Mount being almost cut-off from the mainland during high tides.
With our experience of listed status, EIC were fully prepared for the task. Meticulous planning meant that the location of the project did not result in delays.
EIC were appointed by main contractor ISG to assist with the re-development of existing facilities at the stadium. The main focus of the project was to update the current building and enhance the previous features into a new leisure complex consisting of swimming pool facilities, new changing rooms, a dance studio and a gymnasium. The existing sports hall remained the same.
The works were carried out in three phases. The first phase being the construction of a new swimming pool, complete with new reception area, spectators and changing facilities.
A new store for Waitrose located on the outskirts of the city of Lichfield. The building is single storey with all major plant located within a screened area on the roof. The store consists of sales floor, bulk storage, management facilities and customer care facilities.
The project was a fast track installation using cable basket and Wieland plug and play wiring. Completion, staff training and store opening was achieved for the client on time.
This project was to develop a new Tesco’s store on a disused brown field site. The site had previously been home to a Kwik Save supermarket and public house. The new Tesco zero carbon supermarket was constructed on the site along with a community library, car parking and petrol filling station.
The main contractor, Simons Construction, requested EIC for the project. We have experience and a successful track record with a previous zero carbon store in Bourne.
