Interserve Makes Time for Excellence at University of York
The contract to develop the £9.5m science building at the University of York marked the first project with a
new client for Interserve Construction.
The University of York Biology Phase 2 project was the design and build of a new three-storey building housing teaching facilities, laboratories, interactive spaces for students and a student administration centre, as part of a £16m development at the University of York’s Heslington West campus.
From the outset, Interserve prioritised the client relationship.
The University had invested in 20 new buildings on the same campus in recent years, as well as undertaking a major expansion of its campus at Heslington East.
Project manager, Oliver Robinson, not only delivered the project on time and budget, but hit all the relationship goals too, gaining a Gold Medal in the Construction Manager of the Year Awards as a result.
He used Powerproject software from Elecosoft to maintain precision timeline control, evaluate numerous potential programme paths, and evolve the programme in real time to meet challenging, and everchanging, client expectations.
