Cundall is proud to have worked with Kennedy Fitzgerald Architects on the Grangewood acute mental health unit. Cundall was the mechanical and electrical engineers for this project in conjunction with our local sub-consultants, Taylor and Feagan. We also provided sustainability consultancy.

We have helped to design a building of exemplary quality, which minimises energy consumption by optimising the envelope performance and maximising the use of natural ventilation and daylighting.

Cundall’s environmental and sustainability specialists carried out extensive building simulation to optimise comfort conditions, fabric performance and energy strategy. A biomass (wood pellet) lead boiler provides over 75% of the thermal energy (heating and hot water) for the building. Underfloor heating is provided throughout the facility. This has created an “A” rated EPC energy assessment and a NEAT “Excellent” score.

We have optimised patient and staff safety through innovative services design.
