Harper Keele Vet SchoolEducation
On a tight timescale, during the pandemic and with the backdrop of Brexit, Harper Adams University and Keele University joint venture needed a state-of-the-art veterinary school operational in time for their second cohort of students as the current facility was not able to accommodate the growing number of students in the coming years.
The developer, Noviniti, appointed Seddon to design and build the Breeam Very Good building to house both teaching facilities and a vets practice, to provide real-world experience to the developing students.
Our role as Project Monitor was to represent Keele’s interests in the time, cost, and quality aspects of the development, ensuring that key dates were kept, costs were managed, and value for money and quality were maintained. This was achieved by attending progress meetings and site visits, ensuring Keele’s interests were at the forefront of discussions and decisions by the developer and their team.
Despite the challenges of the pandemic and Brexit and due to exceptional efforts by the team, completion was achieved on time, with the changes requested by Harper & Keele to further enhance the building and reduce future operational costs confirmed and good value for money.
