challenge New research laboratory
solution Signed up to a project charter to set out key objectives
benefit Overall project cost reduction
challenge To create a two-storey Research Laboratory to replace an existing outdated facility.

The heavily serviced project was to be undertaken despite the overall budget being significantly reduced.

Our project scope covered all mechanical services including 22 fume cupboards and fully air-conditioned laboratories with a total value of £1 million.
solution We, as part of the client's design team, signed up to a project charter to set out key objectives for the smooth running of the project.

The Charter created an open non-confrontational environment beneficial to all parties and was an essential ingredient particularly with the restricted budget.
benefit Using value engineering, teamwork, and a risk/reward strategy, we contributed to an overall project cost reduction satisfying the client’s budget without compromising their main project objectives.

Our work was undertaken over a 12-month period, was within budget, on schedule and is a showcase facility for the client.
