IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING PROJECT REQUESTS
Each year our Project Managers and Surveyors undertake hundreds of work requests, works planning and competitive procurement with external contractors. Many requests are also subject to statutory / regulatory approvals (planning, building regulations, asbestos etc.) and this alone can take 2-3 months, often more. Even seemingly very small works, such as electrical changes can have hidden issues or complications our team will need to deal with, such as fire safety.
To help us help you, it’s important that you get your Planon ‘Project Requests” to us as early as possible, along with confirmation of your faculty and budget approval (and code) as necessary.
Once we’ve received your project request, subject to the complexity of your project(s), we may need you to complete a more comprehensive Project Initiation Document (PID) which will allow us to fully understand your exact requirements in order to commence design and costing, and we can support you in completing this if required.
We will be working closely with Faculty Managers to help co-ordinate Project Requests going forward, and would ask that you keep your relevant manager informed of all requests you submit.
Thank you for your co-operation, if you have any queries about this process please email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us via the Facilities Helpdesk on ext. 93333.
