The project presented a number of challenges around program, coordination with other trades, specification of equipment and quality of the installation due to the fact that the supermarket area was open plan with no ceilings. Our contracts team was required to work closely with the Client the main contractor and all other trades to coordinate works to ensure that the works remained on schedule to meet the aggressive deadlines. The fact that the supermarket area was open plan with no ceilings presented challenges with regards the lighting design and cable and containment routes, this required that the quality of the installation was to the highest standard with stringent quality checks in place as the project progressed.
