Extent of insulation work,pipe and cables penetrations, re-organization of fire zones related systems and, especially, routing of new and even existing ventilation /AC ducts so that, in conjunction with extremely low clearance between garage and new deck (2.35m only) a lot of skill has been demonstrated by the Builder in arranging all ducting with required penetrations, dampers etc within confined environment occupied with old and new ship systems.
