Construction

 

 

Oxford Contracts have worked closely with various construction companies throughout their projects and in some cases have carried out the installation of the furniture for a project in full PPE conditions.  This places extra responsibility and demands on the installation team in terms of both personnel safety and that of the furniture itself, given the potential for damage during the delivery and assembly process.

Installation under PPE conditions highlights the additional need for close co-operation with other teams on site who may still be involved in actual construction or at the very least, snagging activities.

A key area is the successful planning of logistical operations for the arrival, unloading and despatch of articulated and other support vehicles when space is often under pressure.

 

Oxford Contracts are committed to this demanding type of furniture project work and here are a few examples.

 

 

 

Oxford Contracts has been pleased to work with Laing O'Rourke on both the Department of Biochemistry and Radcliffe Infirmary projects at the University of Oxford. Both projects were carried out under PPE conditions and under time constraints to get the furniture installed at the same time as hand-over of the building to the Client.

Laing O'Rourke have been instrumental in assisting Oxford Contracts in the development of this project part of Oxford Seating's business and we have learnt from them. We have developed a clear understanding of how we should operate alongside a construction company on a project and assist them in the overall fullfillment of time and logistical constraints whilst at the same time ensuring the safety of all personnel concerned.

 

 

 

 

 

"From our first meeting through to handover Oxford Contracts (Allitec) provided us with a first class service and were always willing to go the extra mile. This resulted in an installation that was to the highest quality and defect free"

Mike Morris Project Director, Laing O'Rourke

Oxford Contracts have worked with Mace Plus after handover at the Tinsley Building at the University of Oxford for example.  This required liaison with on-site representatives and project management from Mace to ensure the effective installation of furniture in public office and laboratory areas.

 Additionally, we have worked with Mace providing them with furniture for their own construction site support buildings on the Nuffield Department of Medicine building, where Oxford Seating also provided all the laboratory chairs, as well as to the second phase of this project which was the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology.
