Work undertaken

Trevor Jones Contracting successfully secured the project in June 2018 and started late July with a tight program to complete by 3rd September 2018 ready for the children’s return after the summer holiday.

During the six week construction period, Trevor Jones Contracting undertook the following installations:

  • All demolition and strip out of the existing building.
  • Decommission and removal of all mechanical and electrical etc.
  • New heating throughout, hot and cold water services, plant room alterations and Asbestos removal to the plant room.
  • Construction of new timber stud walls, installation of steel beams, installation of new external windows and doors.
  • Refinished hall floor and lighting.
  • LED lighting throughout.
  • Complete new Fire Alarm installation.
  • New small power and distribution.
  • Complete decorations including new plasterboard and suspended ceilings throughout.
  • Minor roofing works and external alterations.
  • Supply and installation of new bespoke cubicle systems and toilets.

Areas of Identified Risk

  • Fixed time scales due to new students starting Early September
  • Working alongside a second contractor installing modular classrooms direct for the Client. Integrating M&E within our scheme.
  • Short lead in for mechanical and electrical so procurement at an early stage was paramount.
  • Regular visits from new users which needed close management due to a live construction site and the H&S risks therein.
