Mechanical and Electrical
Oakland Air Control Ltd.’s Mechanical expertise is focused on a building’s heating, cooling and ventilation systems. Our Electrical expertise focuses on energy saving lighting & LEDs, emergency lighting, power systems, uninterruptible power supplies and standby generation. Fire and security alarm systems also feature here. Our BEMS controls expertise, utilising their ability to optimise asset usage and energy consumption with occupancy requirements, completes our M&E services portfolio.
Core to our service offering is HVAC - heating, ventilation and air conditioning. We supply, install, service and maintain HVAC systems installed in commercial, industrial and residential premises. HVAC installations can comprise simple, stand alone units installed on a wall, in the ceiling or mounted on the floor. To cool, these installations have to have an outdoor unit to expel heat. These "split" systems form the basis of many HVAC installations in the UK as they are flexible, controllable and cost effective. Oakland Air Control Ltd. supplies Daikin and Mitsubishi Electric products and because of its partner status is able to offer extended warranties on the equipment it provides. Preferred solutions include the Daikin SkyAir heat pump range and the Mitsubishi Mr.Slim in-room solutions.
Larger HVAC systems comprise centralised chiller and boiler plant arrangements. Centralised air conditioning units often circulate cooled air through a network of insulated ducts that mix existing air in the building with fresh air to achieve an optimised and healthy climate within a building.
Mechanical and electrical systems help keep the building’s occupants safe, healthy and comfortable. It is because of these factors that it is vitally important that M&E systems are correctly specified, appropriately designed, competently installed and thoroughly maintained.
Mechanical and electrical engineering systems consume power and are responsible for carbon emissions. It is important that they are used and controlled optimally. Our integrated approach which uniquely includes BEMS controls expertise, enables us to achieve this comprehensive objective.

These regulations apply to people who own, operate or have control over lifting equipment. As the HSE states "this includes all businesses and organisations whose employees use lifting equipment, whether owned by them or not."
The working at height directive has also changed attitudes and behaviours associated with working at height from ladders to window cleaning cradles.
It is vitally important in both cases that systems used to enable human access to structures or assets where the risk of a fall exist are regularly inspected and maintained.

Through our relationship with Mitsubishi we are able to provide financed solutions to help fund new HVAC equipment installations using their MEL Financing Solution. This could be part of a new build, refurbishment or recommissioning project and enables our customers to enjoy the benefits of a new HVAC installation such as reliability, energy efficiency and lower maintenance costs without tying up your capital.
Recommissioning HVAC equipment in your building could result in more comfortable, temperate spaces, lower energy bills and more reliable operation. The very latest HVAC equipment is greener, better for the environment and quieter in operation than previous equipment.
