University of Dundee Medical School

Teaching Accommodation

This £4m project incorporates the construction of a new 800 m² extension with the remodelling of 2,700 m² of existing teaching accommodation within the University of Dundee Medical School. As part of the project new centralised plantrooms were formed to house ventilation, electrical switchgear, boiler and air-conditioning plant to serve both the new extension and the existing accommodation.

The construction contract involves several phases, one of the main challenges of this project being the need to ensure that live services are maintained at all times to all areas outside the construction zone. This required detailed investigation of existing services routes and infrastructure to be carried out during the design period.
