Bray & Slaughter is celebrating after landing an internationally-recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards.

Bray & Slaughter has received a RoSPA Gold Health and Safety Award for working hard to ensure its staff/Clients/Consultants/Supply Chain get home safely to their families at the end of every working day.

Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK's longest-running H&S industry awards.

Following hot on the heels of the internal phase, this month we have struck the protective scaffold wraps and handed over the external elevations to our delighted client.

To complete these works we constructed engineer designed plinths as part of a robust weathering and thermal solution, which ensured the composite windows will perform as design, this solution ensured that minimal intervention with the existing cladding and building fabric was required.  

The phased internal works to create the newly refurbished Claverton Rooms at University Bath have handed over to our client. We transformed a dark and dated internal space into a bright contemporary dining and function space.

The large format external windows were at the end of their life and were replaced with high performance composite frames, improving natural daylight, ventilation and sightlines across campus.  Through clever sequencing and planning we were able to salvage and refurbish the junkers hardwood flooring, along with the upgrade of mechanical and electrical systems to leave a stunning new space for our client UoBath AHS.  

B&S have supported our project teams by ensuring that Covid-secure measures were adopted on all of the site projects.

The health, safety and well being of our employees, customers and supply chain and anyone else who comes into contact with our operations is and always will be our number one priority.

Through the precautionary steps we are taking we remain confident that Bray and Slaughter is doing all it can to continue to deliver our projects safely in accordance with Government guidance. We continue to monitor the Government's website and updates by the Prime Minister and using the information to guide us in forming and amending our strategy and approach to the virus.

This changing environment has provided us with a number of measures which we are taking to ensure the safety and health of our employees and those connected with our works.

We have introduced measures within our sites/offices to implement safe operating procedures and social distancing. One our sites we have one-way directional arrows advising our workforce the best route around the site whilst implementing the 2-metre distancing rules. In addition we have effected a process for planning to avoid close working and this is presented to the workforce within site inductions and displayed on noticeboards.

We have recently been awarded an office fit-out in Capital Quarter, Cardiff for our new Client, Geldards LLP Law Firm.

The project includes the Cat B fitting out of the 6th and 7th floors of a newly completed Grade A, BREEAM Excellent building.

Works include the provision of partitioning and other general fitting out to include offices, meeting rooms, a kitchen and break-out areas and significant mechanical and electrical alterations and improvements.

The project is due for completion in the Summer 2020.

This complex and logistically challenging extension has been handed over to the Royal United Hospital in Bath.

The works comprised of a remodelling and extension of the existing building originally constructed in the early 1970's. Upon completion the works will provide new therapy and group rooms, supported bedrooms and offices.

The completed extension now provides flexible residential accommodation to support different patient groups, such as single sex and parent and child.

Bray and Slaughter joined forces with other industry professionals to take part in the LandAid Sleep Out 2020 to raise awareness and valuable funds to end youth homelessness.

The event which took place at the Bristol City Football Ground was host to around 120 rough sleepers for the night and was hailed a success by it's organisers.

Over £42k was raised for the charity and every penny of the fundraising will go to help our mission to end youth homelessness, and local charities in the region who provide vital services to young people in the South West.

Extensive refurbishment works to the Dyson Institute for Engineering Technology has completed on time.

Works comprised of the fast track refurbishment and upgrade of 13,000 sq.ft of office, teaching, laboratory and break out space whilst the adjoining building remained occupied.

The works were completed over multiple phases to meet key 'live' dates for our Client through 2019 and beyond.
