Mach-Aire awarded fume cupboard contract at Cambridge University’s Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology facility

Mach-Aire is pleased to announce that it has been appointed to design and build 60 fume cupboards for Cambridge University’s new Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology facility.

Cambridge University is developing a new Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology facility, to bring together its teaching and research departments under one roof. The university wants to create state of the art facilities which will not only allow them to compete with other leading international universities but also act as a pioneering centre for collaborative research with industry.

Mach-Aire has been appointed by the principal contractor, Morgan Sindall, to design, build and install approximately 60 Classic VAV style fume cupboards. The fume cupboards comprise a mixture of bench and walk in type, each having automatic sash closer devices fitted (to optimise energy efficiency) and automatic fire extinguisher systems. The client, Cambridge University, has been heavily involved in the selection of the fume cupboards for the Chemical Engineering & Biotechnology (CEB) Building and Mach-Aire’s appointment followed inspections at existing Mach-Aire fume cupboard installations to ensure the solution met the client’s specification.

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to work closely with both Cambridge University and Morgan Sindall on such a prestigious project, providing a high quality, bespoke fume cupboard solution that is expected in a world class facility.” Said Roy Allwood, Managing Director of Mach-Aire.

The project is due to be completed in June 2015.
