Commercial case study 3
C&G were requested to complete the full installation within the bistro and bar of a large university complex, within a 10-week programme, with no possibility of an overrun as the university was due to reopen on September 9th (the day after handover).
We had to closely liaise with all trades on site, to ensure a seamless transition from core & shell to working bistro bar.
We worked alongside many interested parties: main contractors, sub-contractors and 3# design elements. The final decorative lighting scheme involved some 15 different circuits, with 27 assorted fittings, all of which were suspended from the slab on exposed containment.
Also completed were the sound system, kitchen supply, ventilation, emergency lighting, data and small power installations.
The project was completed on time, within budget and with a zero-harm safety record maintained for the duration of the project.
We overcame a number of issues whilst on site:
The site was within another main contractor for the whole site project for the university refurbishment and a second-tier main contractor for the bistro bar we were working on.
C&G put a supervisor in place to manage the project and ensure that all elements of the installation were completed in a logical sequence of works whilst meeting with end client’s clerk of works and head of departments to ensure all parties were involved in collection decision making.
Another issue to overcome was access. All deliveries were required to specific gates, within allotted times only and the location of the gates was constantly moving as the main refurb was coming to a close. This meant close liaison with main contractors and our suppliers alike, to ensure all goods were directed to the correct access points.
Whilst a challenging project, we are sure you can see from the images that the efforts of all involved were rewarded with the end result being a grand success. We were pleased to have played a major role in leading this prestigious project.
