Technical Specifications

We utilise the Specification Expert platform for compiling all our technical specifications. In certain instances a client may dictate a ‘Contractor Design' procurement route to be applicable as opposed to the traditional/full design route.

Where such circumstances occur, we can provide a ‘performance' specification as a benchmark document against which contractors will base their own design and tender submission.

TKC have a wealth of knowledge and experience dealing with the known utility providers and have built up working relationships with a number of senior decision makers therein over a number of years.

• Low, medium and intermediate pressure gas

Maintenance Contracts

Effective and planned preventative maintenance is an essential item for buildings and their systems. Large amounts of money can be spent and indeed wasted if maintenance is either ignored or treated as reactive only.

TKC have a number of existing clients with multi site operations where we have created planned preventative maintenance documentation/contracts and have tendered and subsequently managed the implementation on site for our clients.

Sustainability / Renewables

In recent years the topics of ‘sustainability' and ‘renewable energy sources' have become widely used in the early stages of project consideration/briefing. In many cases the desire to be seen to be environmentally friendly has fallen flat due to a lack of proper understanding and appraisal of the options available, their viability and the actual capital costs involved relative to gain/benefit.

TKC have undertaken a number of options appraisal exercises for a number of varied projects but unlike many other M&E consultancies, we have also implemented a number of projects in Scotland where renewable solutions have been adopted.

Examples of recent projects are:

• Dunedin Canmore Housing Association – Westfield, Edinburgh – Centralised CHP (Combined Heat & Power)

• Link Housing – West Bridge Mill, Kirkcaldy – Centralised CHP

West Bridge Mill Fuel Solution

• Dovecot Properties – Dovecot Studios, Edinburgh – Multi bore GSHP (Ground
Source Heat Pump)

• Port of Leith Housing – Western Harbour (R2) – Centralised CHP

• Braemore Estates – Residential Development, Comrie – Solar Water Heating

TKC have a detailed knowledge of the various technologies available to the market
and can advise our clients in detail which, if any, of the available options are viable
for a specific project.
