At a recent Mansion house dinner Professor Paul Curran, Vice Chancellor of City University, announced as part of his after dinner speech “Our fourth action is to invest up to 165 million pounds in our infrastructure, estate and academic processes. This will provide the facilities our students want and will increasingly demand in a world of strong international competition and higher fees”. In the first phase of this regeneration Artic Building Services, having been successful in becoming one of the contractors on the framework, has secured through competitive tender £2.4 million worth of project work over 3 sites, the Tate, Abacus, and Properties & Facilities buildings. The project works are varied and include the installation of new ventilation air handling units, VRF AC systems, power and lighting and in one case a complete building fit out. All projects are expected to be completed by November 2014.
Richard Tooher, Managing Director, commented “Yet again Artic have secured substantial contracts through competitive tender demonstrating the quality, service and value for money that Artic can bring to major projects”.
