PeopleThe project was located at the heart of a busy residential estate and next to a live pharmacy. With this in mind, the team ensured that fully-lit hoarding was erected round the site with public pathways to navigate around the outside.
PlanetWater and energy use and carbon emissions were monitored onsite, whilst a waste champion ensured that our ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’ strategy was enforced through our site waste management plan. The building features solar panels, as well as ‘passivent’ natural ventilation technology and infrared sensor lighting systems.
The circular shape of the stair tower provided a technical challenge, with a variety of modern and traditional methods used to ensure the cone was always round and even.
The concrete soffit also proved to be technically demanding, with the exposed concrete finish requiring input from various parties to ensure the desired outcome. There were numerous items to consider including the spacers used to support the reinforcing steel, the setting out of the ply boards that formed the shuttering, the type of face of the ply to give the appropriate finish, the level of cleanliness and inspections prior to pouring the concrete, and the ability to supply an even and uninterrupted concrete flow throughout the entire pour.
“I would like to take this opportunity to commend Morgan Sindall on the manner in which they fulfilled the construction of the Reydon Healthy Living Centre. Our Reydon branch was in very close proximity to the build and considering the potential effect on my business, there was little or no impact. I would like to pass on my personal thanks to the site staff, who went out of their way to keep me informed of what was going on. From what I have seen the quality of the build has been top class, and we are looking forward to relocating into the space.”Brian Jolly, Director
