LABC Cymru Building Excellence Awards 2017 - Swansea               Best Large Commercial Building - Creative Cluster

 

R&M Williams received recognition from LABC Swansea for the constructionof Swansea's Urban Village centerpiece, the Creative Cluster. With 16,500ft2 of creative space situated over five floors, the Creative Cluster is an affordable and cutting-edge hub for small start-ups and the creative companies. The community-centred work environment will allow like minded creative individuals to engage and share ideas with one another and help foster a thriving creative quarter in Swansea.

Congratulations to the Site Team and all involved on a highly successful project. We look forward to the Regional Awards at the Vale Hotel in April.

Dom Amirat - Project Manager - Coastal Housing said, "As a client it was absolutely vital for us to ensure that the impact of constructing these projects in such close proximity to our tenant’s homes and our commercial tenant’s premises were kept to a minimum and did not compromise their quality of living. This, together with the city centre location provided R&M with some difficult logistical challenges which were met through excellent planning and communication at all times with Coastal and the occupants of the development. As part of the process of negotiating the contract for the new build office, R&M were instrumental in assisting us and our design team with value engineering exercises to ensure that we were able to reduce the cost of the project whilst maintaining our aspirations to deliver a high quality commercial building. As a client we are extremely pleased with the quality of the completed buildings and the unique environment that they have provided in this part of the city centre. The working relationship established with R&M has been excellent and we look forward to continuing to work with them on further projects."

Silver Site Award - Considerate Constructors Scheme

 

R&M Williams Ltd worked with local housing organisation RCT Homes to transform Dyllas Court into a modern and spacious retirement complex. The development won Silver for showing the highest levels of consideration towards the public, its workforce and the environment through adhering to the Considerate Constructors Five Point Scheme. We received high scores across the 5 categories required by the scheme, specifically in ‘Respecting the Community’ where close contact was kept with the elderly residents and the local community throughout the project and ‘Protecting the Environment’ where 96% of waste produced was diverted from landfill, utilisation of local labour and a Cycle to Work scheme was encouraged with the Site Manager cycling to and from site every day . The project team worked tirelessly to achieve the resulting  Silver Award  which was well deserved.

Mark Wardill, Senior Quantity Surveyor at RCT Homes said, "It is fantastic to see R & M Williams recognised for their best practice. During the development of Dyllas Court it was important to RCT Homes to strengthen relationships with the community and create a link between our sheltered residents and local people. Working with R & M Williams enabled us to manage the build with local support and deliver a great modernisation project on time and on budget.”
