Full design and build MEP services along with the use of offsite manufacturing techniques were utilised by main contractor VINCI Construction UK and end client UPP, the UK’s leading provider of on-campus residential and academic accommodation infrastructure. The contract saw HE Simm deliver work on the separate buildings – all fed from one main energy centre.
Nigel Plant, Contracts Manager for VINCI Construction UK, comments on HE Simm’s involvement: “In 33 years, I have never come across a company as good or as focused on customer care and collaborative working.
“HE Simm stood shoulder to shoulder with us, which made for a fantastic project all round.”
Ian Bruce, Business Unit Director for HE Simm in Manchester, also comments: “We have a long-standing relationship with VINCI and playing our part in the delivery of the scheme for UPP at the University of Hull will only add to this very successful relationship.
“The student village is a fantastic development and one we are proud to have been involved in – I hope that students will be happy in their new environment for many years to come.”
