Framework appointment providing MEP consultancy services throughout the estate. Projects were executed in live environments as well as to tight timescales during educational recesses.

Recent projects have included: 

•UCB Restaurant refurbishment: The complete replacement of the Public Restaurant area ground floor lighting as part of the refurbishment. Our team completed the refurbishment of the original Restaurant and kitchens in 2005.

• New Bocude d’Or Kitchen: Creation of a new competition kitchen providing state of the art facilities for students to compete at a professional level. 

• Make Up Studio 7th Floor: A new facility providing a theatrical make-up studio which included a specialist lighting scheme and local exhaust ventilation to remove the level of contamination introduced by the theatrical make-up process.

• Where there were similarities in design requirements across multiple projects and sites, we were able to transfer knowledge to ensure that lessons learnt were shared and opportunities capitalised upon. It ensured the consistency and quality of solutions were maintained across all sites.
