The HALO Hub project, based in Kilmarnock, is the first phase of a planned 28 acre regeneration of the former site of the Johnnie Walker Scotch Whisky facility in Kilmarnock and is designed to provide an exciting environment for digital, manufacturing and cyber businesses.
Emtec Building Services are delighted to be progressing works for our client Morrison Construction Limited, following on from other recent successful completions such as Greenlaw Business Centre, AFRC UoS & St Dominics PS.
Emtec Building Services are providing the full MEP services for the project under a Design and Build contract, which comprises of a new build, mixed use 4 storey building including a public café, retail space and 3 storeys of lettable office space. The project incorporates the implementation of integrated service rafts, which are being prefabricated at our off-site facility in Rutherglen along with other elements such as plant room skids. Solar PV shall be provided by Emtec Energy, who continue to investigate the future renewables potential of the entire site. The “Halo” effect will be achieved at rooftop level with the installation of a perforated screen housing the external plant illuminated by specialist LED energy efficient lighting
Following on from the initial design intent provided by Ramboll, our design for the project is progressing well along with Hawthorn Boyle, whom we have employed to complete the M&E Services design to BIM Level 2.
We welcome the participation in strong client engagement using a collaborative approach between Halo, Morrison Construction and Emtec Group companies including Building Services, Off-site Prefabrication, Energy and Facilities Services maximising all available opportunities.
The main services installations commence June 2020 with project completion scheduled for November 2020.
