• Parochial Hall / Cluan Place; internal fit out of existing vacant areas which conform to office, classrooms etc. And installation of mechanical & electrical services

Staff working on this listed building was educated on the importance of its history and as a Museum of international importance.

AEM Ltd was employed by the client to provide and install associated Installation that is associated with modern Implementation within the Museum/Leisure Environment. The installation and its fundamental conception ensured that the principles of Energy Conservation within the particular environment had been installed with the future in mind.

Works included the following installations: General Power and Lighting, PA system, Fire Detection, Intruder Alarm, Telephone/Computer Installation, Door Access Control and External Site Lighting.

Mechanical Installation work took place within the museum and included the following:

• Heating
• Domestic Plumbing
• Ventilation


The Installations and the building were delivered on time and to budget through a robust programming strategy. Regular meetings were held to ensure that Cost Targets agreed were met and that the progression of works was as per the programme.

A quality installation was guaranteed to the client on this project as we had the opportunity of producing sample boards of Accessories/Fixtures & Fittings for them to decide, with our professional advice, what suited those best.
