I can confirm that we have recently had a very successful working relationship with Harvey Group on the above Project. The New 18,000 Capacity Stadium required significant Mechanical and Electrical Services in particular a fully coordinated Fire Alarm and PA System which is critical to the overall Health and Safety of the Stadium.
Harvey Group led the full co-ordination of the Building Services and integrated very well with both the Architect and the Civil / Structural Engineer at a very early stage. Their participation in workshops was excellent and their ability to generate full 3D Models of various pinch points was critical to progressing the Structural Design. This in turn meant that the Sub-Structure Design could be finalised and the early stages of the Project got off to a good start.
During the latter stages of the Project, Harvey Group managed the testing and commissioning of the building services in collaboration with the various specialists and also Building Control who needed to witness all of the life safety systems in full working order. They carried out full demonstrations and training to the Client Team and more recently have developed various Stadium Scenarios on the Building Management System which makes it very straightforward for the end-user to operate.
To conclude, Gilbert-Ash are fortunate to have had the assistance of Harvey Group on the Ravenhill Project; we look forward to building on the relationship with Harvey Group and have recently commenced a £20m Hospital Project in London with Harvey appointed as our MEP Design and Build Contractor.
