Birmingham University proudly claims to be "the global university at the heart of an ambitious city" and - as befits one of the "Top 100" universities in the world - is in the midst of a 10 year campus investment plan costing £1 billion. The current phase, to be completed in 2021, will see the opening of facilities worth £365 million and the University has now announced Phase 2 of its capital masterplan, which outlines new projects between 2022 - 2026.
That makes the recent work that Weatherite Air Conditioning Limited has undertaken for the University even more significant: The design, manufacture, supply and installation of a new plantroom on their current project was a great order in itself but it will also hopefully open the door for many more projects in the future.
Birmingham - based Manstal Limited, a building services company specialising in electrical and mechanical installations, approached WACL when another supplier had failed to provide the proactive service that Manstal were looking for: By comparison, they visited Weatherite and were impressed by our "can do" attitude, innovative approach and ability to design and build a bespoke plantroom in two sections and join them on-site.
As ever, offering the best solution at the right price and ensuring that we hit tight deadlines was also critical, but were proud to say that after a tough examination, Weatherite passed with flying colours!
