Case Studies

Heriot-Watt University: James Nasmyth Building

Our Mission

The project involved the stripping out of the existing internal services, with the fit out MEP feeds provided from the existing infrastructure.
The Universities protocols and installation procedures were fully applied to the project, with a successful delivery. The heavily serviced installation required detailed co-ordination, set against the restricted space parameters. This was successfully undertaken by JGM. The services testing, commissioning and hand over exercises were managed and controlled by JGM.
