Small Is Still Beautiful – Plant Rooms Success

Blue + navigational icon

Whilst it is always a pleasure to work on large civil engineering and major building projects the Kepi team also get tasked to complete smaller bespoke jobs. In this case a couple of Plant Rooms were required at Hamid Karzai International Airport, Kabul, Afghanistan by the NATO Support & Procurement Agency. Kepi took on the design, construction and fitting out contract, demonstrating their ability to deliver smaller but complete turnkey projects.

After the ground had been prepared for the new buildings, actual construction work was started. The base concrete slab was laid and this had an additional strip slab added to aid access. The column, truss, wall and ceiling steel fabrication works came next followed by the fixing of insulation panelling and sheathing. There was a great deal of welding and jobs like door mounting required, this was delivered by Kepi’s on-site team, who also installed rubber matting to all the internal concrete floors.

Once the build stage was finished the inside and out were painted and prepared for fitting.  This started with the installation of electrical rough-ins, SDB and GPO’s. Next came the necessary services including electrical lighting, an air conditioning system, full plumbing including connection to mains water and further plumbing work for a water pump, heater and pressure tank.

As with many of Kepi’s projects in conflict regions the end use of the building remains confidential but after commissioning and testing it was handed over to a very happy client. Whether it’s a major camp vehicle servicing centre or like this a simple project to supply Plant Rooms the same amount of time is spent on quality management and work is delivered and checked to the highest standards.
