Jeakins Weir has won a Bronze Award at the 2019 Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) National Site Awards, for its work expanding and refurbishing the A&E department at Kettering General Hospital.
The prestigious award, for projects under £500,000, was presented to Jeakins Weir Site Manager Mark Elliott and his team including Contracts Manager Steve Dix at an awards ceremony in London on April 11th, 2019.
The £460,000 A&E department building project saw Jeakins Weir create two new consulting rooms, a new enclosed paediatric waiting area to improve the experience for children, a refurbished reception area, staff rest area and a quiet room for patients and families.
Jeakins Weir MD Alistair Weir explains the CCS National Site Awards selection criteria: “Projects are nominated for an award as a result of project visits which score highly or are deemed award worthy. Our work at Kettering General Hospital scored 40 out of 50. We are delighted to have received this honour from the CCS and it’s extremely rewarding to be involved in creating life-changing treatment and care facilities for the local community.”
The CCS monitor conducting the visit praised the site – here is an excerpt from the report: “This is a site that projects an exceptionally positive image of the industry to those who come into contact with the project. The level of co-operation being given to the client and the highly effective working relationship that has been developed merits particular mention.”
The A&E expansion project for Kettering General Hospital NHS Foundation Trust was developed under the empa-ii (East Midlands Property Alliance) framework.
