BMSI’s Northern Region Celebrate Successful Start to the Year!

This summer, BMSI’s Northern office embarked on a day out in Liverpool to celebrate a successful first 6 months of the year.

 

In aid of a positive start to 2019, plus keen to utilise an opportunity for teambuilding, BMSI North enjoyed a raucous game of Junkyard Crazy golf in Liverpool city centre. Unsurprisingly, the game wasn’t short of a healthy dose of competition between teams.

 

BMSI Regional Manager, Adam Cain, describes how the day panned out:

 

“We decided to split into our groups and then hacked our way around the junkyard golf course, where it inevitably got very competitive! Lewis Rotheram was crowned the very worthy, inaugural BMSI Crazy Golf Champion after a tense few holes and was sure to be humble in his victory…

 

The team then headed out into the city centre to sample some of Liverpool’s bars before going on to eat at a buffet restaurant. The highlight of the meal was Chris Collins dropping a tray full of cold beers onto the table, but somehow still managing to save his own pint, typical! All in all, it was a great day with a hell of a lot of laughter, and a wonderful opportunity to spend the day bonding with the team and reflecting on a tremendous start to the year!”

BMSI Reflect upon London Bridge Station Success!

In 2018 the London Bridge Station redevelopment (LBSR), was officially re-opened by HRH Prince William, and BMSI are delighted to look back upon an incredible project.

 

James Smith, BMSI Sales Director is delighted to reflect upon the success of the project, commenting:

“The scope and innovative nature of this project was a great achievement for the BMSI team and one that we’re proud to shout about since its completion. The scale of the work completed at LBSR is testament to our capabilities and capacity to deliver above our customers’ requirements, now and in the future.”

 

Taking place over 6 years, expanding the station to 16 Platforms and covering an area the size of Wembley Stadium, the revolutionary redevelopment at LBSR incorporates a staggering 76 Retail Units, as well as expanded staff accommodation and facilities.

Working for NG Bailey (on behalf of Network Rail) BMSI carried out design, supply and installation of the associated Trend BeMS, consisting of 35 MCC Panels, 36 Control Panels and 76 Retail Unit back plates. 65 sets of FCU Controls were also fitted across three levels throughout the Station. The Trend system is based upon the IQ4E ranges of controllers and Modules.

As well as plant control and monitoring at LBSR, the BeMS relays selected alarms to the SMS (Station Management System), together with almost 300 meters continuously monitored and recorded. Boiler, Chiller and Ventilation plant are also all controlled and monitored by the BeMS, plus an extensive Condense Water system provides individually metered energy to all the Retail Units, ensuring an innovative energy-efficient solution to a vastly upgraded, premium facility.

BMSI welcome Uxbridge Students to experience a career in BEMS

Earlier this month BMSI were delighted to invite three students from Uxbridge College to spend a week shadowing BMSI staff and experiencing first-hand what a career in BeMS/HVAC Controls really looks like.

 

Following an initial induction day at BMSI’s Windsor office, students were assigned to different BMSI engineering teams operating across London and the South East, enabling them to spend time with our trained engineers on some of our leading sites.

 

This initiative is part of a drive within BMSI to give greater opportunity to young, motivated people interested in a career in electronics and/or electrical engineering to consider joining the BeMS industry.

 

BMSI MD, Jon Axten, discusses why the company are so dedicated to nurturing young talent at BMSI:

 

“Allowing students access to our  sites such as Heathrow Airport and Great Ormond Street Hospital, to experience first-hand the demands of keeping installed BeMS systems operating to optimum levels, was an absolute pleasure for the entire BMSI team to be involved in.

 

We have made a commitment to again appoint new Apprentices across our UK business later this year and we were interested to hear feedback from our work experience students particularly on what we need to do as an industry-leading employer to make sure the employment opportunities we offer are attractive to the best engineers of tomorrow, something which we are dedicated to ensuring.

 

It was also pleasing to hear feedback from our own experienced engineers about how they were energised sharing their knowledge and experience with young people who are keen to listen and learn. This event has been a great success for all concerned and one we will certainly look to repeat.”

Support Business Development team celebrate training success with Junkyard golf fun

BMSI’s Support Business Development team enjoy a successful training day at the BMSI MediCentre, Daresbury, followed by a competitive game of junkyard golf!

 

National Support Sales Manager, Jen Johnson, who coordinated the training event, was delighted with the outcome:

 

“The technical training we held at Daresbury was a superb opportunity for us to run through the fundamentals of energy management and building analytics with the team and why it is so important that we can support our customers in these areas.

 

Most importantly, we discussed how our MediBox and Medic solution can provide real-time monitoring and analysis, reducing ongoing support costs for our customers and highlighting significant energy savings.  What really capped off the day however, was the surprise win by Midlands Development Manager Ben Summers during junkyard golf, with a rather depleted Keith Bankier and Allan Tannock bringing up the rear!” 

 

Taking place at BMSI’s MediCentre in Daresbury, which is the central hub for remote activity and technology at BMSI, the Sales Support team enjoyed a fully-immersive day of training, combining both projects and support elements to further develop their understanding of energy management and building analytics.

 

Following a fulfilling day of developing their skills and knowledge, the team then enjoyed an evening playing junkyard golf in Manchester city centre, alongside dinner and drinks.

BMSI delighted with Samsung win

The BMSI major projects team have been awarded the contract for the Samsung Retail Store at Coal Drops Yard.

 

Located in the heart of King’s Cross, boasting a picturesque canal-side setting, Victorian architecture and surrounded by newly designed public squares, Coal Drops Yard brings something entirely different to London’s retail and leisure scene.

 

BMSI will be installing a Trend IQ4 system with IQVision front end supervisor, and whilst this is a retail space, it has the plant specification of a main building.

 

BMSI Director James Smith, is thrilled with the win and discusses the complexities of the project here:

 

“This is an ideal venture for BMSI to be involved in and joins a long list of high-profile projects for the team this year.

 

The space at Coal Drops Yard has the added difficultly of its suspended structure and open ceilings, resulting in services not being shared by the two halves, effectively requiring two systems. This is a challenging venture, but one that BMSI are very much looking forward to taking on at full speed, and welcome many more in its wake.”

Securing the contract for One Crown Place has been an especially important win for the Major Projects team at BMSI, as Director James Smith explains:

 

“This is a long-awaited success for BMSI and one we’re proud to shout about. The tender process for this project began with MACE MEP back in August 2017 was only concluded in early 2019 with MJL appointing BMSI for the £1.2M contract.

 

The scope of work on the entire project will take us through three Christmas’ together, and by working alongside Mace we’re confident of delivering on yet another high-profile contract, plus welcoming many more projects of this scale in its wake.”
