The University of Kent had a limited budget for a phased replacement of the campuses boiler and plant rooms. A critical factor was to supply the engineers with cost effective measured survey information on the existing plant equipment and major pipe runs, so they could design and install the replacements over a phased programme. Speed and accuracy were essential to ensure the success of this project, whilst keeping costs within budget.
The University of Kent has exceptional campuses in the UK and centres in two of the most exciting and historic cities in Europe. With its main campus North of Canterbury situated within 300 acres (1.2 km2) of park land.
Residential and academic buildings are intermingled in the central part of the campus, housing over 6,000 students.
All surveys were delivered on time and within budget. The first phase replacement works began in 2020.
