Wythenshawe College

The project involved the refurbishment and change of use of teaching spaces in various areas of the College including IT suites, Hair & Beauty facility, and animal care teaching building.

The new teaching areas had air conditioning, mechanical ventilation, Natural ventilation, Domestic Hot & cold water, electric panel heaters and sanitary supplied and installed by Gilks.

The project was very challenging due to lack of as built information so multiple surveys were carried out for the BMS strategy and natural ventilation which had been adjusted and modified by others previously and the contractors had not recorded the changes.

As part of the works new VRF and mechanical ventilation equipment is being installed on the roof of the existing building, this had to be coordinated and planned to meet the programme & minimise plant lifts whilst taking into consideration the   ongoing issues with manufacturing & delivery lead in times during this period.

Due to the requirement of areas needed by the college for students in late August a phased handover was planned for areas, this was extremely challenging as we had to plan part commissioning to the areas in order to satisfy building regulations in relation to ventilation & water requirements.
