Client: University of Central Lancashire

The University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) recently procured mechanical and electrical works via Construction Impact Framework’s M&E contractor’s lot. The scheme involved the replacement of the chiller plant at the university’s Harrington Building. The Harrington Building houses courses in social work and health and is also home to the university’s 24-hour campus security office, Harrington Kitchen and one of the university‚Äôs biggest lecture theatres which seats over 400 people.

Following the conclusion of a mini-competition between CIF’s M&E contractors, J.D Engineering Ltd. were appointed to undertake the works, which began on site towards the end of 2018, with completion achieved in early 2019.

As a result of UCLan’s decision to procure these works (as well as a number of other schemes) through CIF, a significant community investment pot has been generated. In partnership with UCLan, we have decided that these monies will be invested into a local organisation in Preston called SafeNet, who have been protecting women and children against domestic violence for over 40 years. We look forward to working closely with the team at SafeNet, as we will look to deliver on our purpose to generate real social investment and value, on behalf of UCLan.
