Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd is a new build project situated within the University of Surrey Research Park in Guildford. The build was funded by the University and leased to Surrey Satellite as a production facility. It is a 2,225m² steel framed building, which was purpose built as a new satellite production facility.
The internal area consists of a main satellite production hall, a secure seep rated area for secure satellite production and a third smaller satellite production area. To compliment this there are general laboratory areas, propulsion laboratories, flight assembly areas, a mission control area for control and monitoring of orbiting satellites and control bridge areas which overlook the production bays, various meeting rooms and welfare facilities. The majority of the satellite production and lab areas are built to cleanroom ISO8 standard.
Working Environments role was to provide the complete mechanical and electrical services design and installation package. These works include the design and installation of the following: supply and extract air distribution systems to the cleanrooms and general areas, LTHW heating system, CHW cooling system, air conditioning to mission control and comms rooms, compressed air system, nitrogen distribution system, domestic hot, cold and waste pipework system, HV power installation, LV power installation and sub-main installation, general power installation, lighting, data installation and fire alarm system.
