Engineering Services for Buildings


Wolsey Art Gallery, Christchurch Mansion


In alliance with Main Contractor, Seamans, our Special Projects Division provided the installation of both mechanical and electrical services to this Grade 1 listed Tudor mansion. Built in 1548 the building houses a museum and art gallery which exhibits paintings by Constable and Gainsborough

The mechanical installation involved the replacement of the AHU system, due to the space restrictions, the old unit had to be manually dismantled and removed whilst the new unit was delivered in kit form and assembled in position.

The BMS system controlling the AHU system was replaced to ensure the close monitoring and control of the temperature and humidity within the gallery to protect the displayed items.

The lighting in the gallery was replaced with a new track mounted set of spotlights to provide flexible lighting in addition to the installation of new decorative pendant lamps.
