Inviron completes refurbishment of EDF’s Glasgow office

Inviron’s Project Delivery Team (PDT) has delivered a large scale CAT B refurbishment of EDF UK’s newest office premises in Glasgow.

Appointed as Principal Contractor, Inviron worked in partnership with EDF Property Services to deliver the project over a timescale of nine weeks, which included:

  • Strip out/adaption of M&E services
  • Installation of new M&E services
  • Construction of new meeting and operational rooms
  • Construction of a new kitchenette
  • Co-ordination of Furniture/AV & IT installations

Providing expert knowledge and adapting to changes in scope, the PDT worked collaboratively and effectively with the EDF Property Services team to complete the project without any delays to the agreed programme timescale. All whilst ensuring full compliance with EDF’s Zero Harm initiative and the overarching Inviron Guiding Principles.

Ciaran Collins (Inviron, Head of Projects) commented: “This was an exciting project, one that required a great deal of focus to ensure all works were seamlessly co-ordinated, planned and executed effectively given the various challenges the team faced. The dedication and resolve shown by the team to achieve this fantastic result were exceptional. It was satisfying to see firsthand and be an integral part of the EDF/Inviron collaboration working at its very best to achieve this great result for our mutual client.”

Clive Taylor (EDF, Strategic Works Delivery Manager) said: “I would like to commend Inviron for their efforts. They worked very well with Property Services, helping us with solutions to issues as they arose. Inviron picked up additional scope for us when others were not able to and were very receptive to the challenges as they emerged. I was pleased to be at the opening event when the EDF Executives were very praiseworthy of the outcome and everyone’s efforts.”

Metro Rod Drainage and Plumbing Survey

With the current economic crisis resulting in higher prices and more of a squeeze on resources, FMs need to ensure that they have robust building and maintenance services in place to control costs and reduce the need for emergency repairs. When it comes to drainage and plumbing there are also the challenges of dealing with extreme weather, from droughts to flooding, the need to meet stringent regulations and to avoid causing environmental damage.

UK drainage specialist, Metro Rod, has launched a survey which explores the main areas of interest for FMs in maintaining drainage and plumbing, including how they currently assess their supply chains to ensure they’re working with partners that meet the highest possible standards and provide value for money.

The results will be published online so that you can see how you compare to others within the sector.

The survey should take just 5-10 minutes of your time, and as a thank you, you will be entered into a prize draw, where one lucky winner will be picked at random to receive a £100 Amazon voucher.
