challenges

Both projects demanded careful detailed planning to ensure the finished product was delivered to the high level anticipated by the client.

The main challenge with these projects, were maintaining progress while not effecting the operation of the building. Much of the works were conducted out of hours, so building users were not impeded.

Much of the equipment installed had extremely long lead times, so orders needed to be placed early to ensure delivery within the program require.
Working in old buildings always reveals hidden secrets from yesteryear. Requiring modern day solutions that comply with current codes. We discovered old pipe work, asbestos, unsupported structures and electrical services issues, that needed managing. This required a collaborated effort between consultants and contractors to determine the most cost effective practical solution. It also required negotiating with Authorities as physical restrains within the building did not allow full compliance to current requirements.
