Project Brief

The Humber Renewables and Engineering UTC provides state of the art education facilities for 14-19 year old students. The brand new facility opened it’s doors in September 2015 and supports the existing educational institutions within the area. The building itself is state-of-the-art with specific investment in specialist equipment and teaching spaces to support the focus on engineering and renewables. It is also visibly sustainable with wind cowls and solar panels.

This significant project sits in the heart of Scunthorpe town centre. Adept were appointed to this £9.5million educational project by Clugston Construction who were working directly for the Local Education Department, building on an established working relationship with the firm.

Adepts enthusiasm to play an integral role within the creation of educational spaces was solidified during this significant project, completing on time and on budget by senior engineers.


Solution

The expertise of Adept’s senior engineers facilitated the innovation needed to provide complex engineering design whilst utilising state of the art technology, thus ensuring the highest quality of client services.

Bi-directional links between master series and Revit maximised efficiency and minimised errors during the build. In addition, design model exchanges with suppliers enabled Adept to continue to thrive in the area of quality multidisciplinary working.

Expertise regarding cantilevered steelworks, designing despite minimal bracing opportunities and bridged foundations to avoid necessary services minimised client costs and disruption. Adept’s commitment to responsive consultancy was demonstrated through the design of temporary works assistance as required.

The provision of multiple design options inclusive of secondary supports, chimney masonry, deck designs and depths for both the composite suspended floor and the roofing enabled client choice throughout the build. Adept thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to play a part in creating an innovative environment to foster the talents of the next generation of engineers.
