SOUTH COURTS, UNIVERSITY OF ESSEX
Project: Landscaping Works
Client: University of Essex
Services provided: Contract Administration
The University of Essex has a dynamic rolling programme to maintain and improve their campus in Colchester. Included in this programme are plans to improve the landscaping around the student accommodation blocks, which are being upgraded in turn over a number of years.
Daniel Connal Partnership was appointed to provide contract administration on this scheme to upgrade the landscaping around the Walton, Frinton and Brightlingsea student accommodation blocks at South Courts. Landscape architects on the project were Wynne-Williams Associates and the contractor was CGM Group (East Anglia) Ltd. The project was procured under a JCT Minor Works 2016 contract.
The 7 week project was scheduled to take place over the summer break to reduce any potential disturbance caused by the works, with a strict completion deadline prior to the return of students to the site in September. DCP carried out regular on-site catch-ups to ensure that timely progress was being maintained and the project finished on budget and on schedule.
