Specialist facilities include a working ship’s engine, cross-discipline project bases to encourage blended learning, an innovative multi discipline engineering hall, a ship’s bridge simulation suite, alongside generic teaching/learning/support spaces. The building is highly technology enabled, with activated circulation designed as an integrated learning landscape.

Quartermile, Edinburgh (Quartermile Developments) celebrated a hugely successful night at the third annual Scottish Property Awards on March 3, 2016 with the team scooping both the prestigious Development of the Year (Commercial Building) award for Quartermile 4 and Deal of the Year for the Cirrus Logic pre-let at Quartermile 4.

Scheduled for completion in April 2016, Quartemile 4 will provide 128,000 sq ft of Grade A office space in Edinburgh, helping to meet the city’s increasing demand for commercial space. The building’s distinguishing features include its contemporary floor-to-ceiling windows and roof terraces, which boast striking views of Edinburgh, The Meadows and the Pentland Hills.

The global company, which is headquartered in Austin, Texas, is to relocate from its existing Edinburgh premises to occupy four floors of Quartermile 4, covering 70,033 sq ft. With FanDuel set to occupy the remaining three floors of the building, the deal resulted in the building being 100 per cent let four months before practical completion.
 
 
 
RICS Scotland Award

RICS Awards Scotland

City of Glasgow College Riverside Building

Hulley & Kirkwood were delighted to be part of the team to win a Design through Innovation award at the RICS Scotland awards ceremony held on 14th April 2016.
 
We were an integral part of the Glasgow Learning Quarter consortium professional team which have delivered the City of Glasgow College new Riverside Campus, which comprises the main educational accommodation for the Faculties of Nautical Studies and Engineering/Energy. The campus also includes a new Halls of Residence.
 
The main educational facilities are split between two primary buildings, the teaching tower and workshop block. The teaching tower, comprising some 12,000m2 GIFA is arranged over a Ground Floor, Mezzanine and seven suspended floors, all arranged around a large feature atrium. The workshop block is simpler, constructed over a Ground and First Floor and comprising some 3,700m2 GIFA. The accommodation requirements attracted some very specific and unique spaces, which in turn attracted a considered and specific MEP approach. Two key examples being a 360 degrees simulator (ships bridge) and a working Ship's Engine Room.
 
H&K were responsible for the full Technical Design of the MEP services including Mechanical Ventilation, Space Heating, Comfort Cooling, DX ICT Cooling, Public Health, Electrical Power, Artificial Lighting, Fire Alarms ICT, BEMS and Vertical Transportation. The MEP design for the College fully embraces a low energy/carbon ethos.
 
The building has been formally assessed under BREEAM 2008 (education), achieving an ‘Excellent’ rating for the Design Stage.

The Herald Property Awards for Scotland

The Herald Property Awards for Scotland 2016

Campbeltown Town Hall Conservation and Regeneration Project has recently won a Judges Special Award at the Herald Property Awards 2016.  This is a fantastic recognition for the sensitive restoration of this wonderful building at the heart of the local community.
 
A lottery grant was awarded to restore the historic town hall in Campbeltown, Argyll. Campbeltown Town Hall refurbishment is a community hub with offices to rent, conference and meeting facilities and a one-stop-shop for accessing services for local organisations and community activities.  
 
This is a key element and focal point of the regeneration of Campbeltown town centre, with the Council eager to see the building operated by and for the benefit of the community, generating activity in the town centre and giving local people a community asset they can be proud of.
 
At the early stages of the project, Hulley and Kirkwood carried out renewable energy option studies with simple payback analysis. Annual energy consumption profiles were also created from which a mixed fuel strategy was developed in order to allow the Town Hall to obtain a new gas connection from the local town mains which has restricted capacity for new connections.   
 
The building services have been designed to be as sympathetic as possible to the original features, including the refurbishment of existing ventilators and ornate light fittings. Simple to use, robust system choices feature throughout to avoid creating a complex maintenance burden on the Trust who will be responsible for the operation of the facility.

Woodland View, NHS Ayrshire & Arran

Woodland View, the new £46m mental health and community facility in the grounds of Ayrshire Central Hospital in Irvine, has won Best Mental Health Development at the Building Better Healthcare Awards ceremony on 3rd November in London.

Hulley & Kirkwood was Mechanical, Electrical and Medical Gas Designer to Balfour Beatty who was appointed by NHS Ayrshire & Arran to finance, design and construct the development. The project, funded using the Scottish Government's Non-Profit Distributing Model, comprised a new 206 bedroom integrated mental health and community facility, bringing together a comprehensive range of mental health patient facilities. During construction, clinical services were maintained on the hospital site within the existing operational buildings. The new facility was constructed in a series of phases to allow appropriate decant provision from the existing buildings. The energy strategy for the building incorporates combined heat and power plant and extensive use of natural ventilation to reduce carbon emissions and utility costs.
 
This new healthcare facility will help NHS Ayrshire & Arran with its long-term goal of shifting the balance of care from acute hospitals into more community based facilities.

Kensington Neighbourhood Health Centre

Consisting of one in a group of four new neighbourhood healthcare centres completed by Hulley & Kirkwood for L&SHP under the LIFT scheme, the £6m project in the Kensington area of Liverpool was the final phase and benefitted from a number of design and client lessons learned to produce a superb facility consisting of GP consulting rooms, podiatry, dental surgeries, treatment rooms, minor surgery facilities, group rooms and the all-important adjacent pharmacy facility.

Stadium Business Awards

Stadium Business Awards 2014

Lancashire Country Cricket Club

The new revitalised, renamed and radically transformed Emirates Old Trafford, Lancashire County Cricket Club has been awarded Project of the Year at the Stadium Business Awards 2014.  The Lancashire venue has hosted some of the most exciting matches in cricket history. The £20m redevelopment of the Old Trafford cricket ground has metamorphosed the historic venue into one of the country’s premier sporting destinations with two new grandstands, a revamp of the existing pavilion (with 15,000 seats extendable to 25,000 seats), state of the art new player and media facilities, a big screen and advanced floodlighting.  The wicket was also re-orientated to run north-south for the first time in 150 years. The new facilities were set to the highest new standards for International cricket providing a host of new educational and training opportunities for the local community.

Hulley & Kirkwood provided the M&E design system with sustainable features such as rainwater harvesting; solar hot water, low energy lighting, super insulation and inverter driven displacement ventilation. To provide the flexibility required, large power supplies were distributed within the raised floors to serve each of the suite split options; there are lighting control systems to each area and an in house PA system for speech and background music. H&K also provided the design of the new permanent floodlighting system consisting of four 53 metre high masts each with 107No. 1.5kW lamp “Green Generation” luminaires. Spill light was a key concern for this installation, not least due to its neighbouring residential situation; this has been successfully dealt with using luminaire light direction controllers and gun-sight aiming of the point sources.
