Health and Safety

In May 2010, Dornan Engineering were audited by “Safety Schemes in Procurement”. Our EHS Manager compiled documentary evidence to meet the questions on our policy and arrangements for Health and Safety within the company.

NISO Award for Dornan Dornan Engineering’s EHS Manager submitted an assignment to the National Irish Safety Organisation / Northern Ireland Safety Group in July 2010. After 3 months of adjudicating from the NISO panel on 600 entries, 118 companies received awards with Dornan Engineering receiving the 3rd highest award on the night – The President’s Award. This All Ireland Award was presented to EHS Manager Paula Kennedy by Mary O’Rourke TD in recognition of the consistent commitment to excellence in Health and Safety Management by the company over a number of years. Traditionally, multinational companies have received the President’s award therefore Dornan Engineering are delighted to have broken new ground in this area. 2010 was not the first time that Dornan Engineering had taken part in the NISO Awards. The company received recognition from NISO for 5 consecutive years including three Regional Awards and a Distinction Award. However, it was the consistent commitment to ongoing improvement in health & safety that lead to its winning of one of the top accolades this year. In conjunction with core business elements, safety deliberations are amalgamated into all aspects of operations including the development of safe processes and risk management with legislative requirements

defining the minimum level of acceptable work practices. EHS Manager, Paula Kennedy went on to say that “the NISO Presidents Award will be used as a benchmark in our objective towards continuous improvement”.

Compliance with UK Health and Safety Regulations encompassed 50% of the submission with the core criteria embodied in the CDM Regulations. Being CHAS Compliant will enable Dornan’s to secure contracts in the UK. Each month, thousands of contractors and consultants apply for work with public and private sector organisations in the UK. The CHAS system was necessary in order to secure the Great Minister House contract.

Safety through environmental standards is a Dornan motto which emphasises the belief that by doing our everyday work in a professional manner with respect for our colleagues and clients, we will naturally create a safe work environment. Achieving the President’s Award is a culmination of years of effort by a company who can be justifiably proud.

In the earlier part of 2010 Dornan Engineering applied for the ECIA Safety acknowledgement.

DORNAN ENGINEERING HAS THE FOLLOWING ACCREDITATIONS:

Dornan takes Silver at the RoSPA Awards Ceremony, Birmingham In March 2010 our EHS Manager, Paula Kennedy, ventured into the UK Health & Safety Awards, the first application by Dornan Engineering. The key fixture in the UK Health and Safety calendar offers organisations a prime opportunity to prove their ongoing commitment to raising health and safety standards. The RoSPA awards are not just about reducing the number of accidents and cases of ill-health at work; they help to ensure that organisations have good health and safety management systems in place. In the current economic climate, these awards demonstrate that employers care about their employees and will not let health and safety standards slip even if times are tough.

Kennedy said that ‘Dornan Engineering have shown a commitment to protecting the health and well being of its employees and others. Entering the RoSPA awards reinforces the message that good health and safety is good for business, and clearly demonstrates an organisation’s dedication to improving performance in this crucial area.’ The Awards Ceremony was held at the Hilton Metropole Hotel in Birmingham on 13th May 2010. The prestigious Silver Award was presented by Lord Jordan of Bournville, CBE, to Derek Duffy, Operations Director & Paula Kennedy, EHS Manager.

External Audits on OHSAS 18001 & ISO 14001 Systems Dornan Engineering were audited on November 8th – 10th 2010 inclusive on our Safety Management Systems, OHSAS 18001 & our Environmental Management Systems 14001 by an external auditing company. The auditor reviewed documentation from our sites in Ireland, Frankfurt, Belgium, London as well as our CCGT Power Plant in Wales. (A special thank you to our Site Safety Manager in Pembroke, Steve Griffiths & his team for their efforts in preparing the Pembroke site for the audit). The environmental and safety legislative requirements for each of these countries

has been successfully transcribed into Dornan environment and safety systems. Higher level systems such as Legal Compliance, Aspects & Impacts, Improvement Initiatives, Management Programmes and Order Progression were audited. Documents at site level such as audit findings, accident investigations, risk assessments etc were also audited. It was a great achievement to have been audited for 3 days and not to have any Non Conformance Report issued against the company across its European locations. Congratulations to our EHS Manager, Paula Kennedy, who has been successful in securing a position on a newly formed

panel for safety professionals in October 2010. There were several applicants for the position with 7 candidates being appointed. The other 6 candidates are from manufacturing & pharmaceutical environments as well as two candidates from IBEC. The panel, named ‘Health & Safety Experts for Europe and the Middle East’ are now providing expert advice to manufacturing and pharmaceutical companies setting up offices in European and Middle East locations.

Spotlight on Projects PEMBROKE Dornan Engineering commenced work at the Pembroke Power Station on 7th June 2010, involving the Electrical & instrumentation and HVAC packages of work the largest combined cycle power plant ever built on a plant in UK. Our first task was to ensure for the safeguard of our workforce. As the project is located 8km outside of Pembroke town, in a remote area and due to the congested nature on site with only availability of 20 car parking spaces, Dornan decided (under the approval of Alstom) to transport by bus all employees to and from the site. We investigated a number of central locations close to the main road and rail networks around Pembroke town. Our estimate is to employ a workforce of around 350 people over the project duration. We started by developing a detailed Green Travel Plan for submission for approval to proceed to Alstom. This has resulted in renting car park spaces and utilising between 4 to 5 coaches daily during peak times, staggered to alleviate road congestion in the area. The aim of this Green Travel Plan was to minimise the impact of car travel on the environment, by reducing congestion, enhancing accessibility and improving local air quality. Dornan Engineering’s Green Travel Plan is a package of behavioural and physical initiatives adopted by us, to both reduce dependency on car travel and to promote the use of alternative modes of transport or ways of working that will reduce car use to and from the Pembroke power station and the immediate road network surrounding the projects site location. We want this travel plan to work and act as our strategic document to manage the projects transport demands. In order to meet our green travel plan targets, there is a number of actions we have taken to ensure success. These can be used to a greater or lesser extent according to local conditions, and will be selected to suit the project and local authority requirements. Dornan consulted with Alstom and The Pembroke County Council Transport Planners / Engineers at an early stage, on the scope of the Green Travel Plan. This ensured that all the necessary considerations had been taken on board for implementation. From day one our site team were under pressure to commence construction, with the first of the 400/21kV GSU transformers already in place and ready for assembly. The project timescale for the complete electrical installation is 13 months which as you can imagine is extremely demanding even in ideal conditions. Our first task was to appointment sub-contracts for specialist work, risk assessments and method statements for approval from Alstom as well as approval of the contract programme. We

had a flood of design information to digest in order to build to specification. Due to the fast track nature of the project a number of turnover packages were partially handed over in order to minimise any delay. The build of the Areva GSU transformers was an extremely difficult job but congratulations to all our team for making it happen. The Cariboni bus duct was the first of its type installed by our appointed sub-contractor and raised a number of challenges although we had the availability of another specialist to assist in its completion. The cable basements had to be fitted out with cable containment– although they are not actually basements - because of

the switchrooms been delivered in modular form and lifted onto support steelwork with the cable ways built at ground level. Despite early challenges on the project the first systems – referred to as TOP’s (Turn Over Packages) on Unit 11 were delivered to schedule. The spiders web of scaffold within the Turbine Hall made it difficult for the team when installing the containment to the Gas & Steam and Steam Turbine Areas but on we sail non the less. The 400kV cable routes from the NG sub-station has started and is progressing well. There has been major rane lifts of major and expensive electrical equipment including modular Switchrooms, Generator circuit Breaker and Diesel Generators.


Dornan Engineering Services were awarded the initial pre-construction M&E surveying works scope and then subsequent JCT Contract for the complete refurbishment of a leading Finance company, at Kingswood in Surrey.

Generator set upgrades and Fire Alarm system works, all whilst keeping the existing building operational 24/7 which includes all mission critical plant serving the company’s existing main Data centre. The works also include the complete internal refurbishment of their existing offices as well as upgrading the BMS systems to a thorough breed Trend system and replacing all the data transfer systems. These works are being carried out over 6 section and some works that need to be carried out to the common areas are being undertaken out of hours. The initial pre-construction works was to conduct detailed M&E surveys and evaluate proposed changes to the data and meeting / conference room facilities, detailed programming and detailed site logistics commencing fully on site on 16th August 2010. The project finally completes in December 2011.

The works include the replacement of all roof cooling plant including Cooling Towers and Chiller sets (which had to be carried out by helicopter) and the replacement of existing M&E plant including

DORNAN DIGEST JANUARY - MAY 2011

All Approved Contractors are subject to periodic assessments. The purpose of the periodic assessment is to check that the business is maintaining its technical standards and is continuing to comply with the NICEIC rules relating to enrolment.

While our recently completed M&E projects at GlaxoSmithKline in Coleford Gloucestershire and EMC in Cork involved traditional system test, commissioning and handover at project completion, many of our projects now undergo continual phased handover of systems and zones as the project progresses. Continual mid project handover of completed installations is challenging for our Quality team but has contributed to improved onsite quality and project control. Our team on the Legal and General Project in Surrey have been successfully completing and handing over sections of the occupied live building including all inspection, test, commissioning and health and safety records applicable to the scope of work. From a Quality point of view each weekly report reflects progress on method statements for future commissioning activities, progress on areas currently being commissioned, and documentation status on areas for which commissioning is complete. To date we have successfully handed over several M&E sections of the live building, and roof plant room. On the CCGT (Combined Cycle Gas

Turbine) Power Plant in Pembroke, our Quality and Handover team are meeting an aggressive schedule of system turnovers for the electrical installation and more specialist areas of transformer and bus duct assembly and complex cable support structures. The project will see a progressive handing over of systems in each of the 5 turbine halls (Units 11 to 51) in succession including completion of the common support facilities on site. To date Unit 11 is substantially handed over and turnover of systems in units 11, 21 and 31 now overlap, demanding close co-operation between Dornan Area Superintendents, Dornan project planning, control and quality teams and Alstom Engineers. Our vision is to further develop our Quality Management and project handover systems to allow and offer ongoing verification and turnover of systems and building zones.

Our Mechanical division comes under the spot light of BM TRADA (Certification body accredited by UKAS).

BM TRADA Certification carries out all of the inspection and assessment visits for HVCA and has done so since the scheme launch in April 2003.

As members of the HVCA (Heating and Ventilating Contractors Association) Dornan Engineering is subject to a regular independent third party inspection and assessment audit to verify our technical competence and commercial capability.

Membership of third party Schemes provides our clients with the confidence that our work is completed by competent staff and complies with relevant safety and Quality standards.

Feature

Lift Off After months of concise planning and preparation, Dornan’s team, led by Project Manager Paul Morley and Health & Safety Manager Martin Rooney, executed a successful Helicopter lifting and final positioning of new Chillers and Cooling Towers to L4 Roof of the Kingswood site, Surrey. Supported on the day by Helirig Ltd and Plant Movements Ltd, the Helicopter took off from the General Sports field, on the East side of the building and took just 75mins to execute 20 lifts. A total of 4 chillers, 8 compressors, 4 cooling towers and 4 cooling towers fans were lifted into place. The heaviest of the equipment weighed in at 2.5 tonnes. A team of 14 men were on hand to ensure the lifting was executed as planned. All pieces of equipment were marked out and numbered, corresponding to the placement area on the roof for the Pilot to navigate the equipment into place with ease and precision. All parties involved were pleased with the smooth running operation of the lift on the day. See the full video of the Heli-lift action on our website: www.dornan.ie

Following on from the successful relationship built between Mace and Dornan Engineering Services on the Newbury Data Centre for Nationwide Building Society, where Mace achieved the British Safety Council 5 Star award, the Sword of Honour and the 5 Star Environmental Award we were keen to ensure the high standards achieved were maintained on all of our science and technology projects. Health and Safety was therefore a key consideration when awarding the sub-contract for the works at Kingswood House, as the project contains some particular challenges including the lifting of new plants onto the roof by helicopter. Dornan have yet again proved to be the right choice; winning our monthly health and safety league three months running despite tough competition from other sub-contractors. The proactive approach to Health and Safety and the commitment of a permanent representative in Martin Rooney for this task have all played a part in this achievement, as has the active participation in the safety committee meetings and our BMOS (Behavioural Management of Safety) scheme which seeks to modify the actions of those working on site by getting them to look at what is and is not safe on site for themselves. The aim is to change all of our attitudes to safety and create an ongoing safe culture. The management and execution of the helicopter lifting and plant movement activities over the course of one weekend again had to be well planned and coordinated in advance between our two companies to ensure logistics, security and welfare requirements were all meshed and could be cohesively presented to the client and their CDM-C (Construction Design Management Co-ordinator), responsible for advising the client on the suitability of our methods from a Health & Safety point of view. The works were carried out to plan without a hitch and 20 lifts were completed in 75 minutes with loads of up to 2.5 tonnes being moved. We still have twelve months to run on this project and plenty more challenges to face but we can look forward with confidence knowing we have the right team for the job.

GSK COLEFORD / EMC / TICONA

GSK COLEFORD Dornan Engineering UK are pleased to have been involved in the project which was part of GSK’s recent £67m investment in the new bottling plant at Coleford – the largest capital investment for the Consumer Healthcare business at GSK. We carried out the mechanical and electrical installation, working closely with Project Management and the GSK management team. We worked hand in hand with our helpful client to ensure that there were no problems with the project, despite working in close proximity to the operating plant. We co-ordinated with the bottling plant installers and operators, Logoplaste, as well as the other contractors on site including Chalcroft. We built a load bearing scaffold to take the 20 tonne chillers and installed all the plant successfully, in a very tight site perimeter. The Mechanical and HVAC Scope included Air Handling Units & associated ducting systems, Steam and Condensate pipe, Chilled Water and Condenser pipe work from Adsorption chillers to Hybrid Cooling Towers, LPHW pipe work from a steam to LPHW heat Exchanger, Domestic Water Pipe work, Air Conditioning system to the Offices and Lab, Building Management System and instrumentation., Air & Waterside commissioning of the above systems. The Electrical Scope consisted of LV boards, Mains Cables from the HT Transformers to the LV Boards, Sub Distribution Boards and all Cabling from LV boards, power cabling to HVAC plant small power, LV power to moulding plant, Data cabling and Data installation, Fire Alarm and interface with the existing factory alarm, earthing installation, lightening protection installation and Security System. The systems had to be commissioned in phases and we carried out a controlled handover of the systems in a phased manner as production equipment was installed and brought on line. The final act of this phased handover takes place on the 15th February with the full load test. Our site management team consisted of Dermot Daly, Fergal Meagher, Tony Dunican, Pat Hunt. John O’Mahony, James Dougan, Brian Flaherty and Martin Rooney. The quality, safety record and on time delivery of the project is a credit to the team.

EMC² Dornan’s has completed the implementation of an energy saving project on EMC² Campus, in Ovens, Co. Cork. EMC² is a world leading data management and IT infrastructure provider. They have been successfully implementing energy saving strategies in their Cork plant, and this project forms another part of their overall plan. Supported by SEAI (Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland), the project has successfully implemented free cooling technology to a number of areas at EMC². The Dornan project team consisted of Dermot Daly, Tim O’Donnell, Peter Farrell, Paul McGuire and Kevin Donovan, who all worked closely with ARUP Cork, and EMC² to ensure that the integration of new services with systems and within operational rooms proceeded without any service interruptions. The project required close coordination with many large crane lifts, varied work fronts and tight deadlines. Ambient Rooms: the Air Handling Units with mixing sections were re-furbished and AHUs which were recirculation only had mixing sections installed. This allows the cooling load be partly or totally achieved using fresh air. Thermocycling Rooms: free cooling was achieved using pre-cooling coils in the Air Handling Units served by two roof mounted dry coolers. IDC Data Centre: free cooling is achieved by installing pre-cool coils in the computer room air conditioning (CRAC) units and a dry cooler on the roof. The refrigerant based computer room air conditioning units (CRAC) had variable flow control valves

ing are currently at 95% overall Ticona TiGer Project, Germany. and Trioxane units form the bulk of the

fitted and EC type plug fans provided. CB2 Data Centre: free cooling in the form of dry coolers were integrated into the chiller installations and EC type plug fans were installed in the internal CRAC units. New high efficiency motors were installed in the AHUS and Variable Speed Drives were installed to control the motors. This allows the fans run at their most efficient duty to serve the client’s needs. The total installation is closely controlled and monitored by the networked Building Management System and the resulting

remaining work. Loop checking is progressing well with 3,748 loops now complete out of a total of 5,272. The target finish date for the Trioxane unit is the 25 February 2011, and Polymerization is targeted for the end of March 2011 with the final systems handover and demobilisation being carried out in April 2011. In November 2010, Dornan had a peak labour force of 350 personnel. On the 2nd February 2011, we will have achieved 500,000 safe manhours without a recordable incident or a Loss of Time Incident. Dornan’s scope of work involved the supply of engineering design, project management, materials supply and installation services, for the Electrical and Instrumentation works associated with the project. This included 1 million+ metres of cable, 153,000 metres of cable ladder/tray and the installation/testing of ~12,000 instruments. This project was instigated as part of the

savings are displayed in real time. The project comprised of elements of mechanical, electrical, BMS and builders works. We carried out the role of PSCS on the project. This project builds on and continues our successful relationship with EMC² where we had previous implemented a chiller replacement project in 2009.

DORNAN DIGEST JANUARY - MAY 2011

This celebration is important for many reasons. One million learners all over Ireland have completed challenging programmes, learned new skills and tested their achievements against objective national standards. Valuing learning means having it recognised on the National Framework of Qualifications. Recognising learning creates new opportunities personally and socially, and opens doors to further learning experiences and to enhanced participation in the workplace. One million people with FETAC awards at levels 1-6 of the Framework were represented by twelve learners from a range of different programmes of learning. Sean Walsh of Dornan Engineering received a commemorative award in Recognition of level 6 Advanced Certificate Craft.

Sean represents success in setting a target, mastering what he set out to do and a willingness to work to achieve his personal potential. From the Golden Vale of Tipperary, Sean completed his programme in Clonmel with FAS, and also with Waterford Institute of Technology and the Dublin Institute of Technology. While in school, he was inspired by a work experience placement with a local electrician. He commenced working with Kentz Corporation and, as part of his apprenticeship programme, he participated in some of Ireland’ major projects, including the new Aviva Stadium. Sean is currently working at the Pembroke Powerstation project.

After a quick stop in Tenby for a coffee & water top-up and we knew we were coming to the end of the spin. DESTINATION REACHED! We were grateful to the Dornan & Shaw Pembroke team who we were greeted by that night in the Harlequin Rugby Club for some food & drinks and to add up site donations gathered over the two days. Thankfully over the two days we managed to avoid any rain, punctures or crashes. The following morning, we visited the site to present the cheque to the trustees of the Pembrokeshire cancer society. Our total collection was at a staggering £6,000, the highest donation the society had ever received since they began in 2004. One of my favourite aspect of working at Dornan involves taking clients to see our various sites so they can experience first-hand the quality of our workmanship & installation. However, I can safely say that my next visit to Pembroke will be from the comfort of my car with the radio or music on. A special thanks and mention to the following: Dornan Engineering, Paul Carvill & The Shaw Group. To Joanne Sheehan, for organising collections and Site photos with the Dornan Site Team. To John Richardson, our Driver for the two days. And to everyone for their donations & support.
