PlanetSite water and energy use and carbon emissions were monitored, whilst a waste champion ensured our ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’ strategy was enforced through a site waste management plan.
ProfitThe project plan developed to incorporate a staggered build, allowing part of phase two’s construction to take place at the same time as phase one and the demolition of the old care home. This helped to save time and money and bring the contract in four weeks ahead of programme.
To meet the customer’s tight budget we sought alternative products and methods of building. Through close work with our Mechanical & Electrical supply chain, the need to access roof voids was designed out, as was the need for large service access doors. In addition the new building featured a mixture of different roofs – warm, cold and green – and interfaces between these.
The discovery of asbestos in the existing building was quickly dealt with professionally, causing minimal effect to the customer and programme.
Through the entirety of the works, the existing facility required constant access for Emergency Services.
