University of Kent - Origins

JSH Project Management were engaged to design and deliver a fresh new feel to the University’s existing Origins Bar that was 10 years old. The client’s timescales for delivery were extremely ambitious and the objectives included extending and reconfiguring the kitchen.

After the brief was confirmed, the design was submitted and signed off. We specialise in working with Universities’ internal departments, and this project exemplifies how well we do this. JSH Project Management completed the drawing pack with all the relevant works, and handed this to the University’s Property Department to comply with the tender requirements. We checked that all equipment and materials were available within the timescales planned for completion of the works, and attended the tender returns and completed a tender report for review by the University’s Estates Manager. The contract was awarded and a timescale to complete all works was agreed as 31 Days.

We then project managed the on-site works and co-ordinated the direct suppliers within the programme to achieve the completion date of the project - which was a matter of days before the start of Fresher’s week.
