Contractors World - Volvo EC27C proves ideal for Robert Taylor Tree CareVolvo EC27C proves ideal for Robert Taylor Tree Care

Robert Taylor Tree Care of Denny, Falkirk has taken delivery of a new Volvo EC27C compact excavator for its tree maintenance and timber handling business.

Originally introduced to the Volvo brand when they purchased a three year old EC25 which ran for four years meeting all their requirements, so it was a logical choice to stick with ‘proven’ brand when it came to replacing the unit. The 2.7 tonne compact excavator has been equipped with a fully rotating log grab utilising the hydraulic supply to the bucket cylinder rather than fitting a bespoke rotation service.

This is a family run business is strategically based in Denny in the Central Belt, to undertake projects throughout the whole of Scotland

£40m development at Marble Arch uses offsite engineered solution

Marble Arch House, a prestigious new office, retail and residential development in the heart of London, is being equipped with a state-of-the-art offsite-manufactured building services solution designed and built by Pipe Center’s Modular Engineering.

The development, which will have exceptional environmental credentials, is designed to achieve a BREEAM rating of “excellent”. The developer is British Land and building services contractor LX Engineering (South).

The offsite solution consists of 271 modules, including 3D horizontal floor units, pipe work risers and prefabricated 2D fan coil units (FCUs).

The floor modules include services for heating, chilled water, electrical containment and tempered fresh air ductwork, while risers include hot and cold water, chilled water, boosted cold water, soil vent pipes and cooling water mains, all fully insulated.

It is the first time that Modular Engineering has included FCUs in an offsite engineered project. The specialist is building 100 fan coils into specially designed frames at its facility, including prefabricated valve assemblies and insulation. When transported to site and located in position, the units are ready for immediate connection.

Ductwork was pre-assembled into the modules at Modular Engineering’s production facility by a specialist ductwork contractor nominated by LX Engineering (South).
