Project Description

Pacy and Wheatley completed a Healthcare Construction project in Leeds; the project commenced on this prominent building that stood on a large raised site overlooking local amenities, consisted of an eight bed care facility with separate annex of two self contained units suitable for abler residents. The site backed on to beautiful woodland areas which were highlighted and open. The facility enjoyed lounge areas, kitchen dining room and specialist sensory area for relaxation. The terrace area was constructed to provide a peaceful retreat for residents to enjoy, complete with discrete systems to comply with the CSCI regulations. The front of the building was carefully landscaped around the large sloping car park with secure fencing to enclose the rear. The project is an OSC timber frame building clad with brick, render and art stone ensuring clean lines and pleasing aesthetics.

The Challenge

To produce a first class zero defects product for a valued client. Dealing with surface water run off from the higher forested ground to the rear. To complete the project on time and on budget. Battle with continued heavy snowfall throughout the build period. Ensure minimum disruption to local businesses and neighbours. Enable compliance with CSCI regulations and achieve an air test under 5.0.

The Solution

Utilise competent in house staff for the project who have a previous relationship with the client. Due to the inclement weather conditions, all efforts were put into getting as much groundworks completed at an early stage of the scheme. It was also imperative to ensure the timber frame was erected and sealed as soon as possible to ensure works could continue internally.

Key Achievements

Air permeability test achieved a very presentable 3.19. Arboriculture protection requirements were upheld fully on a very tight site. Our client was presented with a high standard of finish giving patients comfortable surroundings from the improved services. Working closely with flexible, local contractors to ensure the phased handovers were successfully completed.
