New Kier Handover Delay

We have been informed that the main contractor, Keir will delay the handover of the project to Imperial by one week until the 14th August. We are looking at the move programme to see what impact this will have given the present dependencies.

This may lead to a shift in your office move date but once we have fully assessed the impact a revised programme will be issued.

 

Disruption to Experimental Services

With the recent issue of downtime dates for machinery and equipment in the various workshops, there has been an increase in requests for work before equipment is taken out of service. For the main workshop this means that it is now very unlikely that longer project work can be completed in the time remaining until after the move to CAGB.

As this very much depends on the size and nature of the jobs being requested, it is strongly suggested that any urgent work is discussed with Roland Hutchins or the other workshop managers to see what might be possible.

There are a number of outsourcing options that may be suitable. The workshop would be happy to offer advice on this. Please do not hesitate to come and see me if there are any circumstances that require further discussion.
