Gilberts is supporting Conlon Construction enabling Lancashire Constabulary to deliver facilities and services that are fit for purpose in line with changing laws.
The Blackpool ventilation manufacturer has supplied more than 300 air movement and control units for the refurbishment of Skelmersdale Police Station. The project follows Gilberts’ provision of similar for one of the Constabulary’s main operating centres two years ago.
The Skelmersdale refurbishment is being undertaken by Conlon Construction supported by Pick Everard and James Mercer Group Mechanical Engineers. In addition to upgrading the façade, the interior is being remodelled and upgraded to create efficient, collaborative spaces appropriate for current and future policing requirements.
As part of its works, James Mercer has installed Gilberts’ GSFE circular swirl diffusers and GECA eggcrate grilles at all levels throughout the building, to provide dedicated supply and extract airflow. The general air movement units are complimented by Gilberts’ Firegard FG2 and FG3 high velocity ductwork smoke and fire dampers and DUC fire dampers rated to deliver up to four hours’ protection against penetration of smoke and fire, managed by some 80 control modules.
