At the Rolls Royce plant on the ring road in Derby, this project comprises the construction of a new manufacturing facility,
including a reception area and energy centre.
Although the client is the main neighbour at the site, this team delivered a level of support to the wider community described
by the Scheme Monitor as “quite exceptional”. Among the very many initiatives included the voluntary development of
a garden area for a local school from recycled timber, and there was also a full programme of apprenticeship and site
administration opportunities. The team worked with a local park on several environmental clean-ups and there was
considerable encouragement for women considering joining the construction industry. Added to this was the extensive
employment of local suppliers.
The site performed equally highly in the areas of safety and environment, showing a clear commitment to workforce health
and welfare. Throughout the site there was open and productive dialogue at all levels. With all these elements fronted by
an extremely impressive overall presentation, this committed site demonstrated the value of considerate construction to
On the University Hospital of Wales complex in Cardiff, this new-build project required the construction of a six-storey building
with surgical theatres, high dependency wards and critical care beds.
The site’s affiliation with the Scheme was strongly promoted at every opportunity, backed by an exemplary performance in
all areas. The appeal of Ivor Goodsite was fully exploited with the character meeting hospital patients and visitors. He also
attended a site family event and helped give a safety presentation at a local school. Ivor’s image was even used on a site
hoarding to provide a photo opportunity for young visitors. Other community engagements involved local schools, hospital
patients, and community groups, with proceeds boosting local and national charities. Occupational healthcare and general
welfare facilities were also of a very high standard, with energy-conserving measures including the harnessing of rainwater for
cleaning boots, tools and watering plants.
The exceptional all-round standards achieved on the site reflected the dedication of the site team and helped to promote the
construction industry, particularly among potential newcomers, as a great place to work.
