Star M&E Solutions helps Chan Brothers to minimise energy consumption

Star Mechanical and Electrical solutions work for Star Refrigeration as a subcontractor to provide Chan Brothers, the UK frozen seafood distributor, with a total solutions package for their London 1600 sqm chill store.

The mechanical and electrical solution the client required for the whole building including sales offices, commercial kitchen, canteen area, drivers reception, despatch, QC room and WC's focused  strongly on minimising energy consumption hence reducing CO2 emissions and utility requirements. This was achieved by the use of effective controls such as a maximum demand metering and the upgrading of the existing BMS control panel to integrate not only existing services such as under floor heating but also new services such as access control, CCTV, telephone and fire alarm systems.

Mark Pennington of SMES commented that "all the clients service requirements were delivered in compliance with building regulation part L" and to "the complete satisfaction of the customer".

The cooling solutions specialist Star Refrigeration who assumed the role of principal contractor for the job valued at £2.7 million, praised the quality work of the electrical and mechanical contractor on the warehouse conversion "the assistance of SMES was essential for the successful delivery of the cold storage facility" said Rob Lamb, Star Group Sales & Marketing Director.
