Project Description:

UniSA City East, Reid Building, Level 5 Lab Upgrade

Client: University of South Australia
Project Value: $2,131,179.00
Procurement Method: Managing Contractor

The project incorporated the redevelopment of the existing laboratories into a new Cancer Research facility comprising a combination of chemistry laboratory, instrument room, cell biology laboratory (including tissue culture facility) and individual offices. The project was fast tracked to facilitate the arrival of key stakeholders into the facility and Harrold & Kite Pty Ltd were required to program and coordinate works in a collaborative effort with the University and lead consultants, to deliver the project within the timing and physical restrictions presented.

Major mechanical, hydraulic and electrical service infrastructure was required to facilitate the new facilities and minimal interruption to the existing building users was paramount. Close co-ordination with key stake holders of required shutdowns and significant programming of out of hours works was required to achieve the key major milestones and in turn the successful delivery of this project.

Attention to detail and controlled inspections during the build ensured that the strict requirements of the project specification design and performance brief was achieved and allowed careful and considered attention to the overall detailing of the architectural finishes.
