Client: Arup, SPT, AHR Architects, Austin Smith
Description: SVM have had a continued involvement with the Glasgow Subways in various capacities since our initial appointment in 2011 to undertake electrical surveys and provide reports on the supply, distribution and cabling infrastructure. A separate project entailed the provision of M&E design duties for three stations including, development of initial proposals into workable solutions which adopted any SPT specific strategies. Power supply; reticulation; distribution; maintenance operations; essential power requirements for the station operational services and track equipment (sump pumps); remote monitoring, driver/train interface; lighting; ventilation and fire detection were all addressed. The design also covered small power, ICT, lighting, emergency lighting, SISS/CIS, help points, new lifts at certain stations, heating cooling, vent (including reversing the vent strategy for the ticket offices), ticket gatelines, relocations and retention of system recently installed at some locations. The works extended to the bus terminus at Govan and involved the auto door controls, new induction loops, water services, and architectural lighting for the external canopies. Most recently we have been proving containment surveys and reports on all stations as part of the full scale refurbishment of all Glasgow subway stations.
