Enhancing communitiesSchool involvement was a huge part of the project and the team went the extra mile to engage the pupils. This included regular site tours for the engineering and technology students to learn about the build as it progressed.
Improving the environmentSignage was used to show students our environmental targets to help showcase responsible business. Throughout the project 98.9% of all waste was recycled and across 22,356 hours worked, we had an average of 25.7% of these worked by local people.
Working together with our supply chainAt an early stage in the project, we worked closely with Concertus to agree value engineered changes to the scheme.
This project was due to take place right at the heart of the campus, and across the crucial GCSE exam period. By working closely with the school facilities manager and business manager, the team planned schedules for work around the exam calendar – this included complete standdown times during every exam so that pupils could undertake their works in silence.
Working across a number of phased areas in the school meant that careful planning was needed to schedule the works, whilst ensuring business as usual for the school. Through lean planning and collaborative working, the team ensured the project was delivered on time, in budget and scored a 10 out of 10 for customer satisfaction on handover.
"From our point of view it was flawless, hassle free, and everything was taken care of. They were just so on it - they thought of things before we thought of them, and planning ahead was fantastic – we were kept involved with a phasing schedule so we could work around it, and it was just all so slick."Maggie Shaw, Facilities Manager
