Improving the environmentPassive approach to design with the Essex Breathing Buildings model used to underpin the natural ventilation strategy. This resulted in a leading air test result of 1.67m3.h-1.m-2@50Pa.
Working together with our supply chainSix apprentices were placed in partnership with our Services Engineer DPL to develop and qualify the next generation of engineers.
Protecting peopleThe project handed over RIDDOR Free, with zero reportable incidents.
Developing peopleRegular work experience placements employed on the project from Southend and South Essex Colleges. These students were given one and two week placements to learn about engineering, site management and commercial surveying roles.
Working on a live campus, next to two schools, with a shared site entrance with the schools, Morgan Sindall Construction had to carefully coordinate logistics. A dedicated gateman was employed for the duration and logistics schedules were regularly planned with headteachers.
Meeting the complex SEN needs called for bespoke solutions. This included specially designed hoisting systems in the hydrotherapy pool, a robust timber wall structure to protect against any damage, Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment design coordination around the specific use of individual therapy rooms, and liaison with the school to ensure building layout and wayfinding worked with their education needs.
“Part of Morgan Sindall Construction's Customer Charter included the aspiration that the new Glenwood feels like the old Glenwood. It still felt like home! We have a shiny new body, but the same heart - I could feel it, it made my day. Thank you to all involved in this amazing journey!”Judith Salter CBE
