University of Hertfordshire

About This Project

During the design phase of their new Science Building, the University of Hertfordshire appointed Hewshott International to provide procurement services to complement the work of their own internal Audio Visual project team.  This landmark new development will bring all the University science facilities under one roof.  Light, airy and full of state-of-the-art equipment, it will house laboratories, cutting edge research technology and areas for informal learning and socialising.

Hewshott reviewed the University’s existing AV design and compiled a comprehensive set of procurement documents to match.  Once responses were received, Hewshott fully reviewed each response, held post-tender interviews and made a recommendation for appointment to the University.

Adam Harvey, AV and Digital Media Development Manager, said ‘Hewshott not only provided us with additional resources to our AV project team and acted as a ‘sounding board’ for ideas but played an integral part in turning the information obtained from multiple stakeholder meetings into a comprehensive industry standard tender document.  We wanted to capture all the stakeholder requirements as well as calling for innovation in AV system design across the whole building.  We achieved this with Hewshott’s help and have selected a top flight integrator partner and exciting future proofed technical solution for our new Science Building”

The engagement with the University of Hertfordshire is an excellent example of how Hewshott can add expertise and specific resource types to certain phases of projects to assist client teams as required.
