This site visit will be hosted by Mark Campbell, Contractors Director at Felix O'Hare & Co Ltd.

 

The School is the largest Special School of its kind in the UK and is being constructed to a particularly high standard of finish. It is scheduled for handover in September 2017.

 

The project is being administered using an NEC3 contract, BIM has been used in the design and construction, and the finished building is set to be BREEAM certified.

 

From challenging substructure conditions to the use of Drone footage to aid the construction management team, the project has included many challenges which will be of interest to CIOB members.

 

Expected duration of the event is one hour.

 

Regarding Personnel Protective Equipment (PPE), please bring a high visibility vest and hard hat, though boots are not required as the building is nearing handover.
