We’ve got all the services you could need under one roof. How about we get them under your roof too?
Where to begin?
A good design starts with a good plan. We ensure our initial assessment and analysis is thorough and that we understand all expectations and outcomes. 22 Degrees provides integrated design and consulting across core building services and adds value at every stage of a project. The key gain of an integrated approach is big picture thinking. All aspects of a design are considered from the outset, resulting in better solutions, smarter planning, time and cost savings, improved communication and more streamlined construction management. Whether just a small job or a substantial project our approach means our clients get value for their investment.
It is no coincidence that 22 Degrees is both our Company name and optimum internal comfort temperature. We are all about convenience and function. 22 Degrees designs mechanical building services including heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems with a focus on clean, effective design. A key aim is to have minimal impact on the architecture and structure of a building.
Our mechanical team are adept in handling all aspects of heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and energy efficiency. Our senior engineers are all experienced Project Leaders, skilled in liaising with diverse stakeholders and keeping projects on track.
Hydraulics expands beyond the traditional scope of plumbing and drainage design to cover a host of other piped services within the dripline of the building. No longer is compliance the only consideration in plumbing and drainage design.
The 22 Degrees Hydraulics team has extensive experience in the design of systems ranging from simple to complex and in-depth industry knowledge including relevant authorities, codes, regulations, suppliers, utility providers and industry contacts.
We provide expertise in various hydraulics systems, including siphonic drainage, waste water, solar hot water systems, potable water systems, gas reticulation, rainwater harvesting, system audit and guidance on anything to do with pipes in a building.
A key component of any building is reliable, effective, energy efficient electrical design. Our electrical team has extensive experience across wide market sectors; their expertise incorporates all aspects of electrical design from basic power planning to complex fault analysis and emergency back-up systems.
We provide solutions for all power, lighting, data and security needs along with more sophisticated requirements like high voltage networks, datacentres, power quality and uninterruptible power supplies. Our in-house specialists in lighting design combine cost awareness with technical expertise and aesthetic flair.
Fire engineering is focused on protecting people, property and the environment. Expanding into fire engineering in 2018 is the logical extension of our design services and is being led by one of our most capable Project Leaders, Alex Davis MEngSt (Fire)
The aim of fire engineering is to deliver functional and compliant assessments and recommendations. This enables designs to be accurately costed so informed decisions can be made regarding any required design changes. We provide acceptable solution prescriptive design. Our consultants come from a background in mechanical building services so are expert in the construction design process. This gives them invaluable practical understanding and the ability to see the big picture.
Fire protection systems are a key part of a building design, protecting occupant life and owner property. Good fire protection design involves an integrated approach during the critical design period. We design fire protection systems to enable competitive tenders and to assist architects and developers in ensuring that special requirements are met, without any nasty surprises during construction.
Our designs ensure your building is fully compliant without specifying unnecessary components. Our fire team provide smart performance-based solutions that meet the requirements of relevant codes and give clients a cost effective, practical plan for pricing, spatial planning and layouts.
Building Information Modelling
At 22 Degrees our approach to any project is to utilise BIM to improve the quality and speed at which we can design and deliver projects.
BIM is one of the most important tools we use to ensure critical coordination happens at every stage of the design process. Our methodology allows architects, structural engineers and clients to be involved in every step and to contribute and comment in a collaborative environment.
