Project Overview

Total Group were successful in securing the design, supply and installation works for the Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) services on the new West Bromwich Building Society Head Office in West Bromwich. The building society was looking for a reliable and sustainable solution that would provide back-up in the event of a power outage.

The Total Group approach

Total Group successfully delivered the design and installation of a large, complex data centre and chiller plant, energy efficient and sensory lighting throughout, and all building services to kitchens, bathrooms and washrooms. State-of-the-art ventilation and control systems were implemented in order to minimise energy consumption.

To ensure the building is able to remain operational during a power outage, the six-storey headquarters also required the installation of a UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) system and two twin back-up generators.

Raised access floors were implemented throughout the building to allow power bus-bars and data cabling to suit the diverse range of office layouts.

The building now occupies over 500 people and boasts significantly improved facilities for both the client’s employees and their customers. The sustainable solutions implemented led to a BREEAM rating of ‘Very Good’, which will help West Bromwich Building Society increase market value, lower operating costs, and contribute to the well-being of the environment.
