Tesco and EIC bring life to the stunning Hoover Building
The Hoover Building is one of the UK’s finest examples of Art .
It has been a landmark on the outskirts of London since its construction in 1932. Not only is the site Grade II listed, it is also ‘of special historic interest’.
Through this project, Tesco and EIC injected life back into a decaying building, working to deliver a new Tesco food store, a petrol filling station, two new customer car parks (above and below ground), a nursery and two office blocks. This project was delivered under the watchful eye of English Heritage. This meant that any refurbishment work carried out by Tesco and EIC was subject to scrutiny from many government agencies.
EIC completes two new office block developments in Weybridge
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.
EIC helps create a brand new sports stadium in Birmingham
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.
