BMS Design, Install and Consultation





Intech worked closely with the Dodd Group to secure this Project during the lengthy Tender period. Our highly trained Sales Team collaborated to ensure that any design risk was eliminated and that our proposal was as accurate as possible prior to order placement.

Programme: February 2023 – November 2023

Consultant: Hydroc

M&E Contractor: Dodd Group Southern

Project Details

The Project was the refurbishment of a 2 storey Secondary School for alternative provision based in London. The project was undertaken in 2 phases whilst the School was in operation. The mechanical works involved the addition of a new Panel in the Boiler Plantroom to accommodate the extra Heating Plant requirements. This panel was integrated with the existing recently installed Trend Panel so that additional Boilers could be sequenced and existing heating circuits maintained. Hot water is provided by means of 2 No storage calorifiers with backup heating via electric immersion heaters

A second Panel located in the Tank Room provides control of the Ventilation and cold water plant with assisted ventilation to the facility being provided by MVHRs and speed controlled fans to the two main halls controlled via temperature/CO2 sensors.

A comprehensive metering system connected to the BMS allows data transfer of the Building utilities consumption to the standard DoE iServe System. The installed BMS is Trend, utilizing the latest IQ4 Controllers and other data acquisition devices.

Key Deliverables

As is the norm with fast track projects, the timely procurement of a full design package for approval was paramount to ensure delivery of the Project.

As usual Intech’s Design Team rose to the occasion with a full suite of Technical Submissions being prepared and submitted well ahead of programme for comment by the Client’s representatives and the design was approved with minimal comments.


The main challenge was to maintain the existing system in operation as the new Controls were being installed. A phased changeover was implemented with integration of new and existing BMS Systems undertaken seamlessly and with no downtime or affect to the School operations. This was achieved by Intech’s meticulous planning of the engineering and approach to the changeover of the systems.


Intech delivered a successful Project that has increased the School capacity from 35 to 100 in this specialised educational facility. An excellent BREEAM rating has been achieved and ongoing energy consumption is being constantly monitored and compared by the iServe system which imports data from the new BMS whilst superior comfort and air quality is maintained by the BMS System.
