Consultation

The experienced team at Filtermist’s systems division, Multi-Fan Systems, begins each project by listening to the client’s requirements and assessing all aspects of the project. It considers the environmental impacts, the health and safety requirements, and the overall system performance requirements, through to the maintenance schedules once the site has been signed-off.

Multi-Fan Systems issues full technical specifications and tender details, as well as RFQs to sub-contractors on behalf of its clients.

Project Planning

A designated engineer is appointed to each project and is responsible for ensuring the system is planned, manufactured and delivered in accordance to both the design brief and all relevant regulatory requirements.

The experienced team at Filtermist’s systems division, Multi-Fan Systems, are P602 accredited, have undertaken IOSH training including Managing Safely and are certified by NEBOSH.

The project manager can be situated on site for the entirety of the build or as required by the client.

System Design

Filtermist’s systems division, Multi-Fan Systems, employs skilled P602 accredited systems designers who use the latest technologies to produce detailed 2D and 3D plans and visualisations. AutoCad is complemented by FARO 3D scanners to produce detailed plans to scale, with images and animated ‘fly-throughs’ showing how the proposed system will integrate with the planned or existing building utilities. This BIM (Building Information Management) capability enables the client to easily visualise what the proposed system will look like in situ, and plan how the changes will affect their business. It also acts as a ‘user handbook’ for the client once the installation has been completed as the drawings contain exact details of all parts used and their location in the system. Multi-Fan Systems currently works to BIM Level 2, but can deliver up to BIM Level 3 if required.
