03 / Projects in the Transportation Sector

MEP designs for complex infrastructure

DSSR has been involved in the design and engineering of the Greenock cruise terminal, located on the west coast of Scotland. The project involved the conversion of an existing terminal building into a modern, state-of-the-art facility capable of accommodating larger cruise ships. DSSR was responsible for the MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) design, including the installation of new heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems, lighting, power, and communications infrastructure. The project was also designed with sustainability in mind, incorporating energy-efficient systems and renewable energy sources to help reduce the terminal’s carbon footprint.

Overall, DSSR’s involvement in the Greenock cruise terminal project highlights our expertise in delivering high-quality MEP solutions for complex infrastructure projects in the transportation sector.
