HIE Advance Units, Orkney – New Warehouses & Office

IKM Building Services were appointed directly to Highland and Island Enterprises to form part of their design team who were engaged to provide the design services for two speculative warehouses in Orkney. The location of these two buildings, one near Kirkwall and the other on a separate island of Lyness, brought with them their own design challenges. Neither site had natural gas, so the design had to use an all-electric solution while also achieving the clients B+ EPC rating. We designed an air sourced VRF solution, this allowed the warehouse space to be free of any obstructions while also achieving the required energy efficiency. The project has been granted building warrant, and was issued to the departments supply chain for pricing. We formed a good working relationship with the project architect (360 Architecture) and have now completed another project together.
