Description

CPW served as the M&E consultants within the architect led design team responsible for delivering this scheme, which provides a new visitor centre that forms part of the National Trust owned and Grade I listed Dunham Massey Park.

Services provided by our project team, aside from the full design of M&E services, included the assessment of the site’s infrastructure and production of a feasibility study relating to new connections and sustainable design solutions.

The key features aided the delivery of a low carbon and low energy visitor centre which provides an aesthetically rewarding experience to the building’s occupants. We are delighted to have supported this scheme and believe it reflects our capability of delivering Heritage schemes.

Key challenges:

Due to the distance of the building from the main road, it was initially problematic to locate a service route which would only cause minimal disruption to everyday use of the park. Similarly, pathways had to be closed to accommodate the installation of the lake source heat pump solution. The lake also had to be drained in order to integrate the racking and pipework coils; this was achieved by diverting in-flow water to surrounding lakes.
