In addition to many justice sector buildings, Rotary Building Services provides mechanical and electrical services for some of the UK's best-known government buildings. These include the Palace of Westminster, the Scottish Parliament MSP Offices in Edinburgh and the Welsh Assembly Government Headquarters at Llandudno Junction.
Palace of Westminster, London
Client: Palace of Westminster
Value: £1 million

Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool
Client: National Museums & Galleries on Merseyside
Value: £4 million
Main Contractor: BAM Construct
The Walker Art Gallery houses some of the most beautiful and valuable works of art in the world. Works from Rembrandt, Monet, Turner, Constable and many more grace this spectacular listed building in the centre of Liverpool. Working in a listed building containing priceless pieces of our art heritage requires specialist expertise. Rotary’s offsite prefabrication strategy played an important role in ensuring the gallery’s collection was protected, and also in maintaining the highest standards of health and safety. Rotary worked closely with the other team members to ensure the project ran smoothly, professionally and was completed on time and within budget.
Tate Gallery Centenary Extention
Client: The Tate Gallery
Value: £7 million
The Centenary Development of the North West quadrant at the Tate has afforded a new home for British art from Tudor times to the present day. It provides space for major artists, contemporary art and a dynamic programme of thematic displays and temporary exhibitions.
Part funded by a £18.75 million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Tate Gallery of British Art houses: four new and five refurbished galleries giving 35% more display space for the permanent collection of British art, six new temporary exhibition galleries, Independent access for disabled visitors.
Careful removal and replacement of much of the existing structure had to be completed before the final finishes could be started. This presented some unique challenges, with the rebuild comprising around two-thirds of the overall construction programme. Meticulous planning by the project team and just-in-time prefabrication ensured the rebuild programme was delivered on schedule.
