Lowe and Oliver, as an approved frame work contractor were awarded the Beam Line I07 Surface Interface Diffraction. Beam Line I07 is a high resolution X-ray diffraction Beam Line used for investigating the structure of surfaces and interfaces under different environmental conditions, including harsh and real world environments.

Employed as the main contractor we were responsible for the design / installation of the cabins including finishes, for the complete complex electrical and mechanical installations including co-ordination of these services.

Working to detailed elevation drawings multiple runs of cable tray and trunking systems were installed for the numerous class cable systems installed from these containment systems comprising conduit systems and dado trunking installed to final point locations.

The systems installed consisted of lighting, small and large power, fire alarm, close control mechanical services controls, oxygen depletion, Beam Line alarm monitoring, clean earth, leak detection, interlocked personal access control and blue lighting.

The project was a demanding project in terms of technicality and programme with close supervision and management required to achieve the clients requirements which required bi weekly reporting and re-programming reports to the clients projects managers.
