SKANSKA: South Essex College

This installation project is for our client Skanska who are building the new £33m South Essex College. We have supplied 18 units, which were triple stacked and installed over 2 days, with the finishing works carried out over a further 5 days.

Originally the plan was to install the units using a lorry mounted crane on foundation pads in the car park area. However the day before installation we discovered that the access had been excavated so our area manager John Roper immediately arranged a crane to carry out installation, and of course updated all the H & S info to reflect this.

Finishing works include installing air-conditioning, fire alarm, intruder alarm, carpeting and a kitchen with servery.

As this photo above illustrates the client specified that the units were painted in 3 specific shades of blue, one for each floor.
