This project comprised the fitting out of a new cleanroom environment and associated storage areas for EV battery testing and manufacture. This was located internally within a new segregated area to the rear of the existing large warehouse facility (20m height), at Unit 10 Banbury, for EPS.

Mechanically, this included the provision of a new ventilation system for the cleanroom environment area, compressed air installation, water supply pipework, drainage and heating and cooling for the storage areas. The ventilation system to the cleanroom area consists of a new fresh air supply system, which will maintain the cleanroom area at a positive pressure to the surrounding stores area and a re-circulation system providing filtration, air changes and cooling within the space.

Electrically this encompassed the re-use of existing hi-bay lighting within the main warehouse area, with adapted lighting controls to suit the new segregated construction area, along with the re-use of existing overdoor illuminated exit signs, reconfiguration of existing high-level fire alarm beam detection and retained main LV Electrical distribution systems, to allow the installation of the new cleanroom and associated services.

New dedicated power distribution was provided specific for the new area and fed from the main LV switchboard, to provide a complete new M&E installation within the segregated area. This was inclusive of new internal room lighting, fire alarm systems and general power requirements, with new crane supplies and specific equipment connections via dedicated busbar systems with tap-off units and commando type sockets.
