UBI were successfully appointed by 1080/Alpha to manage and complete the installation of Height Adjustable Workstations in Dublin for the Central Bank of Ireland.
UBI liaised closely from the beginning of this project with 1080 and the Main contractor to eliminate any potential issues that could arise, although we had agreed certain criteria it was obvious that due all the other site activities we would have struggled to hit the programme. Adding to this, in between desks were special tall lamps that had to be installed and hard wired as went along, we had to work closely with the electricians and contractors on site so that everyone could complete their part in this key stage of the installation.
We called an all parties project meeting within the first week and we agreed that the only way we could get the product to the relevant floors and for UBI to meet the Project hand over date was to develop a plan to utilise the hoist after 8pm in the evenings when it wasn’t saturated by other trades and planned in smaller weekend crews to enable us to push the programme forward, we agreed costs with all parties resubmitted RAMS and rescheduled our teams accordingly. UBI dealt directly with all suppliers on 1080`s behalf for non-conformity and delivery shortages.

“We employed UBI to offload and install all our office furniture for this project in central Dublin which included 1450no height adjustable desks c/w monitor arms, 1460no mobile pedestals, 900no storage units and 12no managers offices. This was a very demanding installation as we were working on a building site with extremely tight deadlines and involved interacting with various on-site trades. UBI approached this project in a very professional and methodical manner but were still able to adapt to the daily challenges thrown up by demands of the various contractors. UBI certainly didn’t shy away from any of these challenges but instead met them head-on and we were able to hand over the completed project within the timescale. We have used UBI for many years on both large and small installations and would intend to carry on with this in the future”
