Case Study

Bangor Academy and Sixth Form and Nendrum College, 2008

Project Value - £3 Million

Bangor Academy and Sixth Form and Nendrum College, 2008

Opening in Spring 2008, this was a Public Private Partnership school project from the South Eastern Education and Library Board in Northern Ireland. Hochtief PPP Solutions were awarded the contract which comprised of financing, construction and operation of two schools in the cities of Bangor and Comber. As preferred supplier to Hochtief in Ireland, Findel Projects worked in partnership with Hochtief to deliver the Fixed Furniture and Equipment.

The new complex of Bangor Academy and Sixth Form College accommodates more than 1,400 pupils. Nendrum College provides room for 400 students. Together, the two schools offer some 27,000 square meters of space.

Opening in April 2008, Findel Projects worked in partnership with Hochtief to provide a complete solution for the Bangor and Nendrum schools by room. Findel Projects supplied a vast range of equipment across 18 different subject areas, from everyday consumables to art and design and technology.

Our on site project management team were integral to the project, consolidating orders and managing and phasing delivery of equipment to minimise disruption and maximise efficiency, ensuring prompt project sign off. 35,000 items of Fixed Furniture and Equipment were supplied to the sites within two days managed via the Findel onsite project management team.

"Findel's ability to consolidate the equipment supply by room off site is a must to allow other site processes to complete. Site operations at completion stage are always intensive and constantly changing, and working with a company who can adjust to circumstances is of great assistance to Hochtief. We can say without doubt that Findel Projects has always proved to be professional and we would not hesitate to partner with them on future projects".
Project Director, Hochtief Public Private Partnership Solutions.

"Findel Projects are extremely proud to be associated with the largest PFI in Ireland".
