Harrow ESFA Schools
Project name: Harrow ESFA Schools
Location: Harrow, Middlesex
M&E Order Value: £7.4m
Contractor: Kier Construction
Working strategically with Kier, Dodd Group was appointed to deliver installation of MEP services to 5 new build schools: Priestmead Primary School, Aylward Primary School, Weald Rise Primary School, Marlborough Primary School and Cedars Manor School.
By working with Dodd Group in a collaborative approach, Kier Construction was able to benefit from Dodd Group's vast experience within the education sector used to develop a fully compliant scheme with cost certainty whilst allowing delivery of a high quality installation and still bringing value to the client.
Dodd Group's early appointment by Kier Construction on the Harrow school batch allowed us to gain common deliverables to the material procurement and design across the schemes which not only brought savings but will simplify future maintenance activities for the end user.
With the 5 schools secured the Kier/Dodd Group partnership developed further, allowing lessons learnt from project to project to be integrated.
The 5 new schools were designed and constructed over a 3 year period each taking on average 24 weeks to complete the mechanical and electrical installation.
All projects were completed on time and to the agreed costs.
Nominated for the Social Impact Award (Kier Southern and Thames Valley Awards 2018).
