This community focused project situated in the multicultural hub of Mill Road, Cambridge saw the construction of a £15m Mosque for the Muslim Academic Trust. Working with main contractor, Gilbert Ash, for the first time, Munro forged a strong customer relationship, providing engineering value during the preconstruction phase of the project.
With an MEP value of £2.8m and a key objective to provide a sustainable installation, Munro has provided renewable energy sources such as photovoltaics and air source heat pumps. In turn, all further mechanical and electrical installations, such as the heating and cooling systems, the underfloor heating, all lighting services and lighting controls will be able to utilise this renewable energy, creating a small carbon footprint for the running of the building.
Mechanically, Munro’s team also provided natural ventilation as well as rainwater collection and grey water systems that provide the Mosque with the ability to conserve and recycle water.
