Assignment Details

  • We were instructed to provide an overview management service with responsibility for design, procurement, logistics, programme, H&S and on-site installation teams
  • This included the review and monitoring of all the above aspects of the project with emphasis on programme
  • Weekly monitoring and reporting on all aspects of the progress of the package
  • Negotiating andprocuring on site access and other hired items
  • Identifying and highlighting any contract issues and managing to a conclusion
  • Communication with Carillion to maintain and develop client relationship

Project Challenges

  • The package had been secured and was progressing through the design state when we were engaged
  • We reviewed and imparted our practical experiences at the design stage to ensure buildability to all elements
  • The concrete frame with inserted metsec modules created a very challenging perimeter EPDM and silicone seal detail
  • To ensure compliance we completed a sample room and trailed the perimeter seal to ensure the design concept actually worked on site
  • We also monitored and updated the overall project programme on a daily and weekly basis, hand in hand with Carillion construction programme and fed this information back to all in-house departments to ensure phases were, designed, procured and manufacture in good time
  • We monitored glass sealed unit orders and coordinated delivery to site with the supplier
  • Glass sealed units to the 4 no large atrium roof lights required mobile and spider cane access. We met with the supply chain companies and negotiated the order along with all H&S requirements for this operation
  • We also managed all site reporting plus H&S documentation, and held weekly progress safety and training meeting with the installation team
