Quora Group’s appointment in July 2022 to undertake the mechanical installation of a new district heating energy centre at Mertz Court, Newcastle University, marked another milestone in prestigious projects awarded to Quora Group in the region. Chosen for our extensive experience and exceptional quality in plant room and energy centre replacements, Quora Group played a crucial role in the university’s expansion and carbon reduction plans. The successful completion of the energy centre project reflects Quora Group’s commitment to excellence, safety, and our ability to deliver innovative solutions within tight schedules.
Overseeing this complex project was Quora Group’s project manager, Liam Stott, responsible for ensuring the successful delivery within a challenging 12-week timeframe. The location of the energy centre within a live city centre university campus environment posed further challenges, necessitating daily safety briefings and meticulous planning to ensure works were carried out safely and efficiently.
Material handling proved to be a significant challenge, with heavy carbon steel pipes of up to 500mm requiring welding and installing at height. Quora Group’s dedication to safety ensured that specialist lifting equipment and detailed lifting plans were employed to execute the work without incident, upholding our reputation as a reliable contractor committed to health & safety.
Through comprehensive planning, implementation, and adherence to health and safety protocols, Quora Group achieved an impressive record of zero accidents or incidents during the project’s delivery. Our strong relationships with the supply chain played a vital role in the timely delivery of materials and equipment, allowing for efficient installation and commissioning within the tight schedule.
Newcastle University now benefits from a state-of-the-art energy centre that significantly reduces their carbon footprint and environmental impact. The high-quality installation ensures trouble-free operation and cost savings through reduced energy consumption. The success of this project has solidified Quora Group’s partnership with NG Bailey and positioned them as a trusted collaborator in the Northeast’s education, healthcare, industrial, and commercial sectors.
