MKP designed the mechanical and electrical services for the extension of construction hall B2, ship building facility for Vosper Thorneycroft surface fleet division.
The building is used for producing key parts of the new Type 45 destroyers at its new £60m yard in portsmouth. This building is an important maritime manufacturing facility located in this historic naval dockyard.
This is an industrial building on an impressive scale, housing two tiers of heavy-duty overhead cranes.
The development, deep within the Royal naval base, was complicated by an instruction not to interrupt the base’s construction capabilities, aswell as a 37-week build time. Nonetheless the M&E services installation on the construction hall was completed two weeks ahead of schedule.
