The Turbo Machinery Research department was originally housed in a former power station that provided inadequate space for research.

The University purchased an industrial building for specialist adaption. The project consisted of inserting a mezzanine to the building and internal alterations to accommodate the Department’s specific needs including compressed air, power and hydraulic requirements.

We were engaged by Oxford University Estates Services to provide the technical and electrical consultancy services associated with the relocation project. Services included: HV and LV distribution, structured IT, high pressure compressed air and vacuum systems, cooling systems and air supply systems for the research rigs.

We are currently working on a follow-on extension project to provide a new computer house, due for completion in 2019.
