GBH win high degree of client satisfaction at Oxford University!

In common with GBH Utilities, M&E Services Provider LX Engineering of Sheffield take justifiable pride both in the quality of their work and the volume of repeat business generated.

A good example is Castle Mill in central west Oxford - a graduate housing scheme for students and couples/families with the first phase completed in 2004 and eight new blocks scheduled for completion in September 2013.

The scheme will incorporate 312 postgraduate units built around a central courtyard, and GBH were engaged by LX Engineering to supply and lay approx 1200 metres of Rehau Rauthermex Uno preinsulated heating pipework...

Close teamwork

LX Project Manager Nathan Briddock says:- “The work was to commence at the new development’s energy centre and terminate in the eight student accommodation blocks. The works were programmed to be completed by GBH in two phases to facilitate the main site construction operations.”

Productive outcome

GBH worked closely across each phase with the client and the site ground-workers to ensure the pipe routes were precisely excavated - key, says GBH Managing Director Trevor Davies, to accommodate the pre-cut pipe coil lengths and eliminate costly additional pipe requirements: “This close working relationship was productive in simplifying the building entry positions within the service risers...

The project value was around £90,000 and was completed in line with the client’s programme.”

In summary, Nathan Briddock concluded:- “This project was one of the first times we had commissioned GBH and, on the basis of their work at Castle Mill and a thorough understanding of both the project requirements and client needs, we would definitely want to work with them again...”
