We have, for many years now worked on Mechanical Building Services projects around the world.

A few examples include:


The design drawings for an Airport Terminal in Zanzibar.

Abeid Amani Karume International Airport is the main airport in the Zanzibar Archipelago located on Unguja Island. It is about 5 kilometres south of Zanzibar City, the capital of Zanzibar, and has flights to East Africa, Europe, and the Middle East.

Works included the provision of consultancy services on a Design and Construct project. Works included Terminal extension and refurbishment, detailed engineering design, cost benefit analysis and production of tender documentation.

The Canadian High Commission, Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania, Africa.

Mechair Building Services Limited carried out the complete design, supply and installation of a water purification system including all domestic distribution pipe services and above / below ground drainage.

Liaising with the local building control department proved key for permissions with below ground drainage as although installing underground drainage isn’t the most complicated task in the world, if incorrectly sized and installed can cause a huge amount of damage.

Project Management of an Optical Fibre Manufacturing Plant in Strykow, Poland.

Mechair Building Services were responsible for the project and program planning of the building services including budget and schedule accountability. We co-ordinated by on site foremen and provided a single point of contact following a definitive scope of works. The sub-contractor management ensured all parties were selected from a pre-qualified database ensuring quality and competence, closely monitored by our on-site foremen within a formal communications plan.

The delivery of the documentation including as-built and CAD drafting services complimented with complete engineering support during the handover period concluded a very successful project for both our client and ourselves.

Docks and Harbour Board, Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania, Africa.

Mechair Building Services were responsible for the complete supply and installation of a large scale stainless steel compressed air installation complete with all associated ancillary packages.

Dar es Salaam port is the Tanzania principal port with a rated capacity of 4.1 million (dwt) dry cargo and 6.0 million (dwt) bulk liquid cargo. The Port has a total quay length of about 2,600 metres with eleven deep-water berths. Dar es Salaam port handles about 95% of the Tanzania international trade, therefore programming of the installation and delivery of materials was a critical element.

We provided the installation of modular stainless-steel pipe systems, emergency repair and routine servicing of all types of the existing compressed air systems. Our installation of plant and pipework was all carried out to the relevant British Standards. Our installation service handled systems on a large scale for this commercial / industrial application and offered a full project management service for this turnkey system, handling the complete process from drawing board to installation and commissioning.

The Railway Locomotive Workshop and Offices for The Tanzania and Zambia Railway Authority.

The Tanzania Zambia Railway Authority, popularly known as TAZARA, is a bi-national railway linking the Southern Africa Regional transport network to Eastern Africa's seaport of Dar es Salaam, offering both freight and passenger transportation services between and within Tanzania and Zambia.

Mechair carried out the design and installation of mechanical services, air-conditioning and plumbing services to the Main Railway and Locomotive Workshop. A point in detail was the manufacture of bespoke large scale galvanised steel above ground drainage and guttering, which whilst posing unique logistical challenges proved an opportunity for Mechair to engineer solutions avoiding any delays to the overall programme, maintaining a quality finish.

Provision of Engineering Services to a confidential client – in Taiwan, Japan and China.

Mechair Building Services currently has engineering interests and operatives working exclusively for a global optical fibre manufacturing organisation.

This has developed over decades and continues to offer our unique experience gained in building services engineering to both existing and prospective clients presently and in the foreseeable future.
