Location: St Teath, Delabole & Perranporth, Cornwall
We were successful in our tender and negotiation to build three new Sure Start Children’s Centres across Cornwall.
Sure Start Children’s Centres are designed for children under five and their families to receive high quality integrated services and information within their communities. Children’s Centres offer services to give children the best start in life and help them reach their potential.
The new building at St Pirans, Perranporth was in immediate proximity of the existing adjacent buildings and school property and we had to ensure that access was maintained to the existing buildings and to the schools car parking areas. Additionally we were required to maintain appropriate means of escape to all existing buildings including providing all necessary temporary screens, hoardings, signage, etc.
The contract period overlapped the school’s term times so we found it imperative to arrange for deliveries to and removals from the site so as to cause the minimum of inconvenience to the occupants and general public, and employ all necessary protective measures to ensure that no damage whatsoever occurred to existing buildings and facilities whilst the building operations were in progress. The school catered for an age group of 0 – 11 years and we gave special consideration to ensure the safety of all pupils, parents and staff during the works.
