We’re delighted to announce our partnership with Balfour Beatty in their recent development of Strathclyde University’s Learning and Teaching Building. To coincide with their 25% by 2025 strategy, we supported the UK’s largest construction contractor in their strategy to streamline onsite activity, enabling them to focus on improving their efficiency, waste reduction and labour costs.
As a business, LINIAN are aligned with Balfour Beatty’s and the Government’s strategy for lower cost, lower emissions and faster delivery by 2025. Since our company started in 2006, we have been passionate in providing users with faster, safer and simpler installation solutions. Working with the construction company has been a key factor in cementing our ability to provide innovative solutions from large to small scale projects… and this one was a biggie.
“The clips are a great product to use due to the speed of install, they leave a good finish (especially with us having an exposed finish), and you do not require as many components or storage as you would with screws, rawlplugs and clips. Very positive feedback from SPIE, who are installing the fire alarms, and also the BBK team who are installing the Emergency Lighting. We have had positive comments from the University Clerk of Works, so all in all, it will definitely be getting used on future projects”.
Project Engineer, Balfour Beatty Kilpatrick
In the development of the Strathclyde University Learning and Teaching Building, Balfour Beatty used over 10,000 LINIAN clips. Utilising them for the speed of install, they were able to adhere to their faster delivery times, installing cabling up to 72% faster than their traditional installation methods. Our clips helped them to improve their efficiency on site without the need for additional tools and equipment and lengthy training courses, which really confirms our message of being faster, safer and simpler.
Our clips also helped secure vital cabling neatly which created an aesthetically pleasing finish on the building’s industrial and exposed look, all while staying compliant to fire and safety regulations.
Working with Balfour Beatty has been a fantastic opportunity for us, and we are looking forward to what the future holds.
