This project involved the conversion a 120,000ft² former printer cartridge factory (Xerox) into a workplace for 1,200 customer service staff for both PayPal and eBay.
Accommodation consisted of open plan offices, meeting rooms, boardrooms, along with a central gallery connecting the 330 seat restaurant, training centre and gym at one end with a town hall space, café and basketball court.
FKM’s role as Mechanical Contractor was the responsibility for the engineering co-ordination and installation of HVAC Systems, Chilled Water Systems, including the full deployment of a DR Suite/Data Centre with an APC ‘In Row’ cooling solution.
To assist in the delivery of the project, the works were completed utilising 3D modelling, BIM, to Level 2, where all services were coordinated with the Design Team to ensure clashes during the construction stage were mitigated.
All works were completed within programme, on specification and on cost.
