Project Scope:

The Mastercard fitout was the first phase of their new technology campus at South County Business Park, Sandyford. A total floor area of 107,000sqft of a new CAT A office accommodation was enhanced to CAT B client’s specification. The works were delivered under a JCT design and build contract and achieved both LEED Platinum and WELL Platinum. The mechanical scope include the demolition and repurposing of existing services and provision of new supplementary services including air handling units, central HVAC circulation pumps, four pipe fan coil units, CRAC units, air conditioning, energy management and building management systems.

Client vision/objectives:

The first phase of Mastercard’s technology campus, the objective was to deliver state of the art category B fit out to the client’s energy performance (LEED & WELL), acoustic and mechanical performance. The campus provides their staff and contractors a world class environment in which to work and collaborate with their teams and all serviced by the barista bars, restaurants, town hall, meeting rooms, phone boots and collaboration spaces.

Unique challenges of the project:

The project was delivered over a total of 50 weeks from award to handover excluding Covid lockdowns. At it’s peak Tritech mechanical had over 50 management, engineers and tradespeople on the ground. As lead services coordinator Tritech took the lead in managing the coordination of mechanical, and electrical through BIM. With consideration to the tight programme and the need to overlap the pre-construction and construction activities, Tritech developed a coordination and procurement delivery plan for both design and contractor stakeholders to follow to enable the early commencement of site works whilst the coordination phase continued.

Tritech Methods/Innovations:

Tritech’s coordination and delivery plan identified the opportunity areas of the project for early site commencement. The plan focused all stakeholders’ activities on commencing these areas whilst more complex areas where left on hold, buying much needed time to work through resolutions whilst not impacting on site progress. This approach proved critical to the project’s delivery. With the project being delivered under a design and build contract, we worked closely with Axiseng on all things design from plant and pipe sizing to acoustic performance to ensure the ultimate delivery of a variation cost neutral product in compliance client’s Stage 4 design specification.
