Oxford University Biochemistry Phase 2 – Challenging times through the Coronavirus pandemic

Oxford University Biochemistry Phase 2 – Challenging times through the Coronavirus pandemic

Congratulations to Laing O`Rourke`s site management team for the way they have kept everyone safe which has allowed the project to progress safely during the COVID19 pandemic.

There have been challenging delays with the procurement of materials, we experienced some suppliers closing their doors for a number of weeks, stopping deliveries to site altogether. The installation teams work force has had to be reduced to ensure safe social distancing can be achieved whilst still performing their duties in a safe way. With all this happening the project is still progressing well.

Integral have been monitoring the material delivery to site from both European and UK suppliers, very closely, which has proved challenging over the past 10 weeks. This has meant constant contact with suppliers and review of the site programme when delivery dates where finally agreed.

The project is planned to be completed mid July which is not far from the original contract date. Considering additional work and delivery issues we believe this is a testament to what can be achieved when Main Contractors, Sub Contractors, and suppliers all work together to deliver a project.

Nearly there ……
