We Understand the need for Commercial Building Closures, and we feel it important to inform existing and potential clients about our position and provide you with a copy of the Polyteck Guidance on closing down buildings or suspending services during the Coronavirus period.
There are many items that can still be undertaken safely and without impact on your own staff or contractors.
Polyteck can provide daily or weekly site visits to check the building condition and carryout some Compliance works such as Flushing water outlets and weekly bell tests, as well as Building Remote Monitoring via IoT or BMS Remote Monitoring.
Please see enclosed document relating to SFG Procedures and Recommendations
Initial controls visit to optimise plant running
In the first instance we would suggest a one off visit to ensure that the BMS /Time Clock and associated control systems set appropriately to insure optimum Gas and Electricity savings whilst still protection the building fabric and services. I.e. out of hours’ time setting, night set back, frost protection.
The cost of the initial controls visit would be £472.50+ V.A.T. assuming normal working hours 08.00 to 17.00 pm. A second visit would need to be carried out when the building is ready to reinstated this would be same price as initial visit.
We anticipate that setting the controls during the shutdown to ensure that the BMS /Time Clock and associated control systems set appropriately to insure optimum Gas and Electricity savings whilst still protection the building fabric and services. I.e. out of hours’ time setting, night set back, frost protection would be substantial.
Weekly or daily building checks
We would also suggest weekly visits or daily visits to include:-
a) Visual inspection of all plant rooms
b) Walk around and visual inspection of accessible all floors and landlords areas
c) Running of all accessible water outlets to mitigate the risk from prolonged stagnation.
d) Weekly bell test to ensure that the Fire Alarm system is operational
e) Full report sent to the client at end of each day
f) Additional site specific checks could also be included time permitting
The cost of each daily or weekly building check visit would be £404.25 + VAT. assuming normal working hours 08.00 to 17.00 pm
Remote secure package option for BMS systems
We have the ability to install remote monitoring on most makes of Bacnet or Modbus systems and access to your existing BMS systems. Through web based devices which can monitor the BMS alarms and is many cases remove the need to visit site to make controls and time clock adjustments.
If you are interested please have a look at our external engineering support Business https://www.enviro-logik.co.uk/rms-remote-bms-monitoring Budget cost £2,000 + VAT
Please contact us if you would like me to arrange any daily or weekly site visits or discuss any of the above in greater detail.
