Plant refurbishment and installations

We make buildings work and we understand the disruption that ensues when vital services break down.

Our team works with the client to minimise the impact of a refurbishment or installation project beginning with detailed planning and integration of all specialist activities. We ensure that every part of the refurbishment process is integrated with the day to day activities in the building so that disruption is minimised.

We have undertaken major plant refurbishments and installations, including work for the British Council Building in Azerbaijan.

Argent replaced the old boiler with a new, energy efficient gas-fired condensing boiler, overhauled the main chiller, cleaned and serviced the air handling unit and completely replaced the electrical installation from incoming supply right through to new, energy saving lighting. The building remained occupied during the three month contract and all the work was undertaken at night.

We also ensured the buildings standby generator was reliable, because the main power supply in this region is erratic. We overhauled the generator and installed a new changeover panel to enable an automatic start in the event of mains power failure. Argent produced a first class job and excellent on-site and health and safety management.
