The project comprised refurbishment and essential maintenance works to the existing halls of residence known as Butler and Fern. Improvements to toilets, forming new accommodation and shower areas, a complete mechanical and electrical upgrade, removal and replacement of finishes and redecorations.
The works were to be completed during the summer break prior to the return of the students in September. The project involved close co-ordination between the mechanical, electrical and specialist sub-contractors, to ensure the remaining trades had adequate time to complete their works.
During the work, asbestos was found in the building and Trinity worked very closely with the Contract Administrator to ensure that the original timelines were met.
The buildings were handed back on program, which gave the client sufficient time to fit furniture and blinds. With detailed cost control and communication throughout the project, the final account was agreed within a few days of completing the project.
