INTRODUCTION. THE MEP ENGINEERING design GUIDE. These Engineering Services guidelines have been prepared to communicate SAJ l KCN. engineering Services requirements. They are intended to guide and inform the building Services Consultants, UCL Operations and Maintenance staff in the development and of engineering solutions for all UCL Capital/Strategic Maintenance Programme (SMP) projects for new build and refurbishment installations.
7 UCL will strive to ensure that the highest standard of engineering Services installation and operations are achieved throughout the entire property portfolio. The use of this design guide is not intended to take the place of, or remove any professional responsibility from the Consultants to fully comply with the requirements of a project brief. It would be impracticable to cover all eventualities given the diverse nature of UCL. projects. Where deviation from these guidelines is considered appropriate, these should be subject to approval in writing by the UCL EM&I Team. The following sections give guidance on the required criteria for common installations. The building Services Consultants are required to comply with the specific project requirements as laid down in the project brief or otherwise indicated in writing by the UCL.
8 Project Manager. It is the intention of UCL to ensure that all works are provided to a uniform and high standard. This should be applied to the following;. y Compliance with the project brief, workmanship, quality and appearance y Environmental control and energy consumption y Reliability and quality of materials y Maintainability and resilience of systems y UCL Environmental Sustainability Strategy and Sustainable Buildings design specification The technical standards and deliverables referred to within these guidelines are the responsibility of the EM&I Team. They may not be varied without written approval of the UCL EM&I Team. These guidelines are a statement of the minimum standards of engineering Services to be applied throughout the estate. They are not intended to stifle innovation and technical advances.
9 UCL has adopted a long-term view with regard to longevity of equipment, cost effective energy saving measures and environmental issues. Best Value The building Services Consultant should work both as a member of the team and individually in the spirit of trust, fairness and mutual co-operation for the benefit of the project to achieve transparent and co-operative exchange of information in order to obtain best value for UCL. The building Services Consultant should promote sustainable development objectives that deliver a high standard of design and installation, whilst meeting the economic needs of UCL. They should work in conjunction with the Sustainability Consultant to develop an environmental strategy, specific for each project. design Guidance for mechanical , Electrical and Public Health Services / Revision 5.
10 7. The building Services Consultant should assist in improving the image of UCL by raising standards within the UCL Built Environment whilst providing best value for money. Objectives This design guide has been compiled to achieve the following objectives: y To provide guidance on design strategies in order to achieve, where reasonably practicable, standard engineering solutions whilst promoting energy efficiency and innovative designs. y To harmonise building and site wide systems to facilitate cost effective and efficient operations, maintenance functions and standardisation. y Historically there have [^^g Z ]bo^kl^ kZg`^ h_ fZgn_Z\mnk^kl Zg] li^\bZeblm systems specified and installed across the UCL Estate over many years. This has made the Estates operation and maintenance functions difficult to manage resulting in high running and servicing costs.
