Preliminary project meeting
We worked successfully with Carillion Construction on an external wall insulation scheme across three sites in Lancashire. Our involvement began at the early stages. Dialogue followed between our structural engineer and Carillion, along with their client, to advise on a grounding/fixing specification which would allow installation of our canopies to sit flush to the face of the external wall insulation system. This collaboration at the start of the project ensured the system was designed specifically for the job and better by design.
We surveyed all of the properties on behalf of the client and contractor to provide a full specification of the canopy and advise on any features which could be incorporated to improve the functionality of the canopy, which in turn would speed up the programme. We also offered a more cost effective solution to the original specification on a quantity of properties on one site, which was accepted by the client and contractor, saving time and money.
A dedicated account manager for the project liaised with the three site managers, running their own site as part of the programme of works. This ensured the right canopies were delivered to the right site at the right time, ensuring handover targets were met. As part of the collaborative relationship between the contractor and Canopies UK we attended on site meetings for the duration of the scheme and provided a warehousing facility to stock canopies to ensure deliverability.Our installation teams worked across all 3 sites making sure handover targets were achieved.
