What was our client looking for?
VINCI Construction was looking for a partner to carry out a variety of fit-out services involved in the construction of a new build student accommodation block in Newcastle.
They needed a company who had the resource and expertise necessary
to take on a project of this size and scope. As a leading property services
company with a large labour resource and experience of working on
similar projects in the area, MITIE was the perfect partner for this contract.
How did we help?
Our team carried out a huge variety of works on-site – everything from
drylining and insulation through to passive fire protection and decoration.
By working closely with our client during the tender stage we were able to
provide a fixed price for the works which meant our team took on 100% of
the risk, while our client benefitted from price security.
This close working relationship has continued throughout the contract with
regular meetings to ensure both parties are kept up to date with progress.
Good communication meant that our team knew when problems were
coming up and could be flexible with the programme.
By working in partnership with VINCI Construction UK, our team are on track
to complete the project on time, ready for students starting university in the
new academic year.
This state-of-the-art building now provides 213 beds for students through a
mixture of studios and self-contained flats. All are fully equipped with the
latest mod-cons for 21st century living.
