Hannan Associates COVID-19 Update

Hannan Associates COVID-19 Update

We would like to update and reassure you that as an organisation it is ‘business as usual’ here at Hannan Associates. 

Whilst the current situation presents significant challenges, we are committed to meeting our ongoing client and project commitments in a manner which follows the Government guidance and provides safe operational conditions for our staff and those of the design and construction teams.

The information below outlines our approach to business continuity and this will be reviewed and updated on an ongoing basis as the situation and Government guidance develops.

Remote Working

From Friday the 20th until further notice our staff will be working primarily from home.

Most people already spend periods working at home so we are not expecting this to have an impact on our ability to support live projects and meet agreed deliverables targets.

Contact with us

Email and all other sharing platforms will all continue working as normal.

Voice contact with our project team members should be made direct using their mobile phone numbers.

If you need assistance with phone or email contact details please email Charlotte Stansfield on [email protected]

Project Meetings

We are well positioned to respond to the need for remote meetings through a variety of conference and dial in technologies.

We are willing to attend small group meetings (5 people or less) if these are considered necessary, until such times as the Government imposes further restrictions on movement. These will be reviewed individually assessing the risks to our staff and other attendees.

Site Inspections

Where sites remain open for visitors, inspections will continue, subject to individual assessment of the risks. During this period our staff will not take part in large group site walk rounds but will carry out the works individually or in small groups. Site contact may also be limited with communication with site personnel by email or other digital means.

Operational Feedback

Whilst we will be doing everything we can to ensure that our service levels continue as normal if you do not think we are achieving this please let us know by contacting the senior project lead who will take the appropriate actions.

As always we would like to thank you for your continued support and loyalty and we wish you and your families all well during this difficult period.

Welcome to the Team Hayley Sheppard

Welcome to the Team Hayley Sheppard

We are very pleased to introduce you to Hayley Sheppard, the latest member of the Hannan team.

Hayley is a BREEAM Advisory Professional and has joined Hannan Associates as a BREEAM & Sustainability Consultant. We wish her much luck and happiness in her new role.

Welcome Hayley!

“I like to lead BREEAM from the fore as much as possible, It should be embedded in the project as early as possible to really reap the benefits. I am very passionate about sustainability and driving this as an agenda. The thing I enjoy most is that I am working as a sustainability professional inputting into new buildings and therefore contributing towards achieving a sustainable built environment. I believe in the possibilities of sustainability without detracting from our quality of life and that is the thing I get most excited about.”

If you would like to talk to Hayley about BREEAM and Sustainability please do not hesitate to get in touch: [email protected]

Liverpool Paddington Village Car Park

Liverpool Paddington Village Car Park

We are very pleased to be providing Building Services Consultancy for the multi-storey car park at Paddington Village, Liverpool for Morgan Sindall Construction.

Paddington Village is part of Liverpool City Council’s £1bn flagship expansion site within Liverpool’s Knowledge Quarter, which will be home to education, health, science and technology facilities as well as residential, hotel, leisure and retail.

The latest plans for the car park feature 12 storeys and 1,245 parking bays, with 12 electric vehicle charging bays and parking for cycles and motorcycles too. The design also includes sprinklers, fire fighting shafts and fighting lifts.

The car park will have a combined heat and power (CHP) energy centre at ground level, which will reduce the scheme’s carbon footprint and will provide district heating and private wire power to the wider development.

Other members of the team include KKA Architecture, Kier Property, Vital Energi and Curtins.

Hannan Associates have worked on several Multi Storey Car Park projects and if you would like to discuss your project with us please just drop us an email.
