Work Completes at the Iconic School of Engineering, UWE
We’re proud to have completed the mechanical works at University of West of England’s impressive Engineering Building and the building has now opened to its first students. The project represents our strengthening relationship with the University after a series of successful projects which have included the prestigious Enterprise Zone, Students Union Building and the more recent CHP and District Heating Scheme.
The Engineering Building offers state of the art teaching spaces and cutting-edge research facilities for engineering disciplines, such as engine test cells, wind tunnels and dedicated learning spaces.
Appointed by BAM Construction, F P Hurley delivered all mechanical services, which were valued at £3 million, including responsibility for design, installation, commissioning and handover. Our design team utilised their BIM capabilities to deliver the project to BIM Level 2, working in collaboration with the design consultants, Hydrock.
The Client is delighted with their new building and Stephen Denning, UWE Project Manager, said:
“F P Hurley completed the final design and installation of the mechanical services at the new £27 million School of Engineering, Bristol. We are extremely pleased with the service provided by F P Hurley, whose local Bristol office allowed them to support this complex project effectively.
F P Hurley worked well alongside the main contractor, design consultants, UWE Estates Project Managers and in-house Engineers in a productive and collaborative partnership. This stretched beyond the specification, as F P Hurley developed a deeper understanding of our requirements and our various activities.
During the construction phase the site team was helpful, responsive, pro-active at all times and a pleasure to work alongside.
Our engineers are very pleased with the quality of the installation and we would have no hesitation in working with F P Hurley in the future.”
