Programming and key dates were paramount in delivering this project. Due to the high usage of all seven Autoclaves, minimal down time was a key requirement to ensure Imperial College could meet the high demands for sterilisation of medical equipment on the Campus.
Weekly project meetings between Alpine, client, manufacturer and commissioning teams proved to be the successful driving force to deliver this project.
Within the SEC building, particular care had to be given due to the sensitivity of experiments and tests carried out. A slight vibration within the same area could have caused months of scientific tests to be abandoned. All work tasks that had the potential to cause issues were programmed to minimise the risk of delays and overruns.
The Installation of a new sub-mains to facilitate the Autoclaves had to be achieved in out of hours due to the operating times within the laboratories and the vibration issue that covers eleven floors of Copper vent pipe.
