The development’s location on the grounds of the university meant all work had to be installed with minimal noise and disruption due to the site’s centrality and proximity to other residential areas. The contract had to be coordinated fully with the university and all district heating, LV distribution, fire alarms, data, CCTV, intruder alarms and water mains had to be vigorously checked and queried by the university’s departments. HE Simm had to accept a very late instruction to provide all the active data equipment and have it all installed and fully commissioned eight weeks before the programmed completion date. The University wanted 100% witnessing on all life safety equipment, which in reality meant that every smoke head, emergency light and external light needed witnessing over a six week period. On handover day HE Simm had to produce a completed D1- D4 form that the university needed completing before they would accept the building. This was a document with over 1000 pages of information.
