Fast-track programme implemented to meet 11-week deadline, cut costs and deliver innovative solutions.
This contract consists in the refurbishment of Sidney Webb House, a student accommodation building at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). As Principal Contractor and designer, SPIE has been responsible for design, procurement and site management as well as the removal and fit-out of the new internal fabrics, furniture and fixings, and mechanical and electrical services.
As part of the work, SPIE provided first-fix services:
- electrical distribution,
- light fittings,
- M&E services,
- 2,400 new LED light fittings,
- four new modularised air source heat pumps at roof level,
- new hot water pipework distribution,
- fire alarms and electrical distribution panels.
SPIE also carried out surveys and risk assessments while working in parallel – with fast turnaround of procurement.
This 11-week on-site programme has been a challenging endeavour from both a technical and programming aspect - because of the speed and complexity of the work – more so than SPIE’s previous contracts with Unite Students.
