Components: Refurbishment of existing university facilities, including geology laboratories, administration and office spaces
Victoria University had two issues to resolve:-
After considerable consultation with the other departments within the Cotton Building, 1,300m² of existing geology laboratories, administration spaces and smaller offices were allocated for refurbishment.
A senior Xigo project manager was seconded to the university to work within the Campus Services Team. Xigo performed the role of both Project Manager and Engineer to the Contract from inception to completion.
As Project Manager for the University, our role required more than just administering and coordinating the construction works. Xigo became the single point of contact for any issue related to the design and delivery of the refurbishment project. Facets to consider ranged from campus security, access to and from the site, space planning, decanting and relocation of personal and their furniture, temporary works, communication with all stakeholders, all being coordinated and programmed with the absolute minimum downtime.
The University prides itself in delivering the highest quality of tertiary education. Xigo provided the pathway for the University to achieve its goals. These final spaces are now enjoyed as being technically advanced and efficient learning spaces. They have been welcomed by the lecturers, tutors and students.
