Equipment installed in buildings
It is important to identify equipment that will be provided within the main contract and equipment which, whilst it may be provided outside of the main contract (because the client may already have the equipment, or they may have existing suppliers) might have an impact on the main contract (perhaps needing to be accommodated in a certain location, or requiring fixing, power supply, air supply, water, drainage, telecommunications connection, etc.).
Equipment requirements might include:
- Built in equipment requiring mechanical or electrical connections such as fume cupboards or drinks stations. A description of built in equipment should include; location, size, and requirements for power, air, water, drainage and telecommunications connection.
- Built in equipment that does not require services such as cupboards or shelving. These should be described in terms of their location and size.
- Stand alone loose furniture and equipment requiring services, such as washing machines, coffee machines and scanning equipment in hospitals. These should be described in terms of their location, size, and requirements for power, air, water, drainage and telecommunications connection.
- Stand alone loose furniture and equipment not requiring services such as tables and chairs. These should be described in terms of their location and size.
