Service Module & Partition Head Innovation at the Emergency Care Centre, Aberdeen

The concept of manufacture of off-site service modules has been in use for several years. During the pre-construction planning stage we decided to take the concept a stage further by adding partition heads to the modules. This method afforded the following advantages:-

  1. Fire and acoustic sealing  of service penetrations through partitions in factory conditions
  2. Reduced on-site labour demand
  3. Reduced programme installation periods
  4. Reduction of working at height lowering safety risks

This concept has not been attempted anywhere in the UK prior to this. Please review the attached video for details.

This was a collaborative effort driven by myself, the project director, (Mr. John Kane) and the services contractor (NG Bailey). Mr. John Kane was the winner of the prestigious CIOB Construction Manager of the Year Award 2013 in the New Build & Refurbishment £40-£100 Million category.
