About this construction project

As part of ongoing infrastructure maintenance, the steam ducts were identified as an area that required asbestos removal as well as maintenance and survey work.

This meant a series of high risk specialised activities, distributed across the campus that would need to be undertaken within a restricted period of time. The work included:

  • Asbestos removal and environmental cleans to the steam ducts as well as plant rooms.
  • Installation of steam duct seals separating dirty and clean spaces
  • Insulation of steam main pipework and any other pipework and plant identified as part of the planning process.
  • Steam mains and condensate valve installation.
  • Manhole construction
  • Potentially additional sump pumps and associated electrical works.
  • Non destructive testing on pipework.
  • Temporary electrical supplies and water supplies etc

It is important to note that this plan has not gone through any resource levelling. This is deliberate as every project is unique and before you level the plan you will need to configure it for your project for example: adding tasks, changing resource allocation, and adjusting task predecessors and successors. The User Guide explains how to configure your plan.
