H1 Facilities

Imperial College London

Full refurbishment of the H1 facilities located within ICL’s Hammersmith Campus. The scheme included internal remodelling to provide high quality laboratory refurbishment and surgery suite, by means of room expansion and corridor reduction.

Works were completed adjacent to ‘live’ fully functioning areas and included the installation of high tech M&E, ventilation, lighting and access control.

Key Project Deliverables:

  • Provided decant space to enable SAF works to commence
  • Refurbish the facility, to accommodate predicted animal usage (species/caging)
  • Develop a feasibility option four in detail to include the provision for rabbits and surgery
  • Develop BIM strategy and model for the project
  • Ensure Home Office compliance and EU directive 2010/63 Annexe III

The fit-out works required a high level of MEP services coordination to suit the structural restraints of the building fabric, along with suiting the architectural and specialist equipment layout requirements. Logan utilised their M&E Coordinator to attend onsite M&E workshops, all to timely progress working drawings and technical submissions, to enable long lead procurement items to be placed correctly on order and commence first fix activities to programme.

The project was undertaken within an occupied building, located within the busy Hammersmith Campus, so particular attention and planning was implemented to the logistical requirements of the refurbishment project. This ensured ambulance routes and other campus activities were not comprised.

The client was particularly concerned with security, so under an enabling package, an SR4 steel door set was cut into the external brickwork of the building at 1st floor level and our scaffold access gantry and welfare facilities were all arranged so that the only access was through our steel secured cabins. In addition, we also temporarily fitted CCTV externally, along with intruder alarms and card swipe access to our site set-up, all of which was linked back into the ICL Security Infrastructure.

The scheme participated in a BIM trial, allowing the college to refine the process, requirements and ultimately have a robust plan and scope of work for delivery of all future projects in a BIM environment. The team was tasked with a brief to put a BIM level 2 strategy in place, to trial and review during the delivery of the project. The objective was to identify the benefits associated when designing utilising BIM, any potential issues and learning opportunities.

  • BIM Level 2 Scheme

  • Creation of new high quality surgical suite
  • Works undertaken adjacent to fully functioning areas
