The brief

In the role of Principal Contractor, Briggs & Forrester Special Projects have completed the hydraulic separation project on ten boiler houses at the University of Oxford.

The £1.3m project consisted of the hydraulic separation from the district heating system which is served by boilers located in boiler house 1 and 2. All works at the university were completed under live environment conditions due to being an occupied campus.

The works included the removal and modification of the existing pipework to allow the installation of 14 local plate heat exchangers, 29 pump sets, 17 pressurisation units, 39 expansion vessels, 10 de-gassers, a mixture of new and upgraded BMS panels, new pipework and isolating valves, all then tested and commissioned in line with the client’s requirements.

What we did for this project...

We have a fully integrated design and build capability across the group, including 3D coordination and Building Information Modelling. By developing the design and being fully involved in the early stages of a project, we can provide timely design solutions and verification.

The group provides a range of specialist skills encompassing engineering, design, installation, and maintenance. The combined experience, knowledge and expertise of all five divisions enables the group to develop and implement fully-integrated solutions for some of the most complex and demanding mechanical, electrical and public health engineering installations.

We guarantee a smooth handover transition with the project team remaining the main point of contact, the development of commissioning and training plan and regular visits from our team in the months after practical completion.

We offer the design, installation and commissioning of the full range of mechanical and electrical building services, providing turn-key solutions including buildersworks, groundworks, specialist finishes.

Our principal contracting capability has been developed in response to increasing demand from clients with projects requiring highly serviced refurbishment, critical plant replacement, infrastructure and fit-out works.
