  • Construction of a new lightweight aluminum plantroom housing 13 air handling units

Risks have been effectively mitigated resulting in seamless implementation of all complex works.

A highlight has been our management of the live environment with no issues raised in relation to our stakeholder engagement, dust and infection control, and major services integrations.

The installation of medical equipment was completed to a superior standard and plantroom works have met client expectations, complying with BCA requirements.
