TRW Systems Ltd, Sunderland

TGA Consulting Engineers have been engaged as Mechanical and Electrical Consulting Engineers for the design of M&E services associated with a £4m extension to the existing factory facility occupied by TRW Systems Ltd as well as a £1.5m refurbishment of the existing factory space.

TGA have worked closely with two separate main contractors (Willmott Dixon and Bowmer and Kirkland who are delivering the extension and the refurbishment works respectively) as well as with their specialist M&E sub-contractors.

The factory units will be used to manufacture and assemble high quality electronic and electro-mechanical components for the automotive industry and need to be positively pressurised to attain near clean room conditions in order to prevent potential contaminants from entering the assembly areas.

TGA developed stage D proposals using Revit to coordinate the mechanical and electrical services with the proposals with those of the architect and structural engineer.
