Big Foot was successful at the awards since its type of non-penetrative system has not been used in the region before and marks a real step-change in rooft op plant support. For the Dubai construction market, Big Foot’s non-penetrative rooft op support systems tick all the right boxes since they are quick and easy to assemble and provide excellent support for HVAC plant and safe access systems whilst maintaining the integrity of modern roofs. They off er many benefits over alternatives including allowing easier coordination on site as the frames are the responsibility of MEP consultants and contractors only. Plus they off er environmental benefits: more sustainable than concrete supports, the frames are also recyclable - if rooft op plant is ever to be reconfigured they can simply be moved and put together again in the new configuration; and the anti-vibration mats that go under the feet are manufactured from recycled car tyres. Big Foot Systems’ innovative nonpenetrative, repeatable support structures are configurable in that they can be adjusted according to the demands of each individual project. www.bigfootsupport.com 01323 844355 enquiry@bigfootsupport.com OCS KEEPS ON CATERING FOR THE GLA The Greater London Authority (GLA) has awarded a minimum six-year catering contract to OCS.

Saracen fasttracked all works for the oil and gas technology provider, taking into account Christmas and New Year holidays and activities, to finish the project ahead of time and within budget. Work was completed in January and comprised the installation of partitioning and mechanical and electrical services. Extensive work carried out in the communications room included the installation of all new air conditioning and a new power solution to ensure all requirements were met. Group IT director for Ikon Science, Dan Wilson comments: “Saracen’s team did a great job of working with us. The move went smoothly and the team’s ‘can do’ attitude was appreciated. Moves like this can bring a great deal of disruption but our global business went entirely unaff ected.” Over the past decade, Saracen’s status has gradually changed from a South East fit out concern to a national full service enterprise.
