Silcock Leedham’s Contribution

Silcock Leedham was appointed to take the end user’s original outline design concept and deliver fully coordinated construction layouts with associated technical information for mechanical & electrical installation by the services contractor.

We worked closely with the main contract team to assess the concept design for ‘buildability’ and cost and produce thermal analysis and natural ventilation studies to confirm the concept was achievable. We then assisted with the selection of the services contractor and finally were novated to the services contractor’s team to deliver the build.

 

Added Value / Unique Selling Points

We assisted the client with the concept design decisions and commercial engineering exercises to ensure the delivery of the project within cost constraints and with the preferred services contractor.

We were able to utilise our broad range of specialist skills to provide technical support including building thermal & carbon modelling.
