The expansion is part of a move to more than double Arm’s UK headcount over the next five years, increasing its number of Cambridge-based employees to 3000.
The air handling unit support frames were supplied via R&M Electrical in Hampshire to building services engineers Integral UK.
There were four large air-handling units to support in total, each approximately 6000kg in weight. All Pump House frameworks were designed to manage the imposed loads of the air handling unit sections being supported, to ensure that uniform load distribution through the frame feet was achieved.
All frameworks are height adjustable via the M24 adjuster legs to compensate flat roof falls, and cross bars can be rapidly placed onto the frame end bars by simply dropping them on from above, providing for a very fast assembly. They are available from stock on a two to three day lead-time.
Steelwork is hot dip galvanised for durability, and is manufactured to EN 1090-1:2009+A1:2011, Part 1.
