Happy New Year and welcome to our re-freshed website, which we hope you find an insightful reference point into the quality, type of service and added value we deliver to our clients across the region.
2020 tested our ability to adopt new ways of working, innovate, critique and adjust methodologies and more than ever required collaboration and tenacity to harness the skills of our suppliers and partners. Our ability to plan, co ordinate and control all aspects of the construction cycle ensured that we delivered projects safely, with minimal interruption in the healthcare, higher education and commercial sectors of the market.
The commitment of our staff and suppliers supported site progress and aided in us in driving projects toward practical completion, but we were also able to harness lessons learned and bring those into proposals and bid documents. The ability to display and demonstrate this tacit knowledge at bid stage underpinned an excellent end to the calendar year, during which we secured new projects in the primary, further education and defence sectors of the market, while securing additional works on the campus of one of the regions most respected universities.
During 2021 we will continue to focus and build on the strength of our approach, where we unite the best and most responsibly managed local specialists to deliver above and beyond our clients expectations. We believe in the practical economic and social impact of ensuring that investment in our region is apportioned amongst suppliers who can demonstrate a commitment to delivering the highest quality service.
Our commitment to social development and improving the communities within which we work, saw us continue to invest in ongoing professional development, graduate recruitment and the support of charities such as the Matthew Tree & LandAid.
Now more so than ever, trusting in skilled, connected and committed teams to deliver projects is at the forefront of our clients minds and we look forward to bringing more of your ‘buildings to life’ in 2021.
Thank you for taking an interest in Bray & Slaughter.
The project was secured through a competitive tendering procurement route.
Due to a requirement for school places, the school is expanding, and this block is to accommodate the additional pupils. The works are internal alterations and single storey extensions to provide; enlarged hall & kitchen, 3 no. classrooms, Learning Resource Centre, SEN Group Room, Toilets & Cloakrooms. New main entrance & canopy enlarged parking & emergency vehicle access.
The project was due to commence whilst the school remained occupied, however due to recent announcements from the UK Government, works have continued in isolation as we continue with Covid-19 restrictions in place.
Bray and Slaughter have been awarded this project by our new Customer, Bath College.
The project was secured through a competitive tendering process in competition with others and will comprise of the reconfiguration and refurbishment of the fourth and fifth floors of the McCauley building in the historic city of Bath.
Extensive refurbishment works will see both floors transformed into teaching/learning space for the Institute of Technology Facilities.
The project programme will continue until the second quarter of 2021.
Bray and Slaughter have successfully secured a new project to provide an extension to the Clients current facility.
The new 50T extension is being constructed at Babcock Internal Group office in South Bristol.
The project is logistically challenging due to its location at the busy Winterstoke Road in Bristol, which is commonly used to access most parts of the city.
The works are due for completion in the 2nd quarter of 2021.
It was with great joy that employees, friends and families were able to take part in another Christmas collection for the Matthew Tree Project.
We have supported the Matthew Tree project for 4 years and wanted more than ever to continue with this collaboration this year. So this year was by far our largest collection to date and a fantastic contribution to support families in crisis within our society to have a better Christmas.
This year so many vulnerable families have struggled financially in somewhat unprecedented circumstances due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and with little or no support.
We are therefore committed to continuing our efforts supporting local communities throughout 2021 and beyond.
Bray and Slaughter completes new primary academy for Wiltshire Council.
The project comprised of the construcion of an educational facility to accommodate a new 2 Form Entry Primary School together with a 30-place nursery and associated external works included the refurbishment of an existing car park and the provision of a football pitch and Multi Use Games Area.
The new state of the art learning facilities are bright and airy classrooms to inspire young minds.
Bray & Slaughter have completed the fast track fit-out to the 6th and 7th floors of an office development at Capital Quarter in Cardiff for Geldards Solicitors.
Works included the provision of partitioning and other general fitting out to include offices, meeting rooms, kitchen and break out areas and significant mechanical and electrical alterations and improvements.
Commencing just prior to the Coronavirus pandemic becoming prevalent in the UK we were faced with further challenges. Located in a city centre environment with limited parking for vehicular deliveries and access to the 6th & 7th floors via one lift in which to transport materials. Despite these challenges the project was delivered safely, whilst ensuring social distancing was in place and to the highest quality standard.
This small but logistically challenging asbestos clearance/composite window replacement project has been recently secured and will see us implementing a number of lessons learned from our larger 2 West Project. Works will complete in November 2020.
