Top Award for GRAHAM-BAM Healthcare Partnership

Project team collect prestigious award at Considerate Constructors Scheme 2017 National Site Awards.

The GRAHAM-BAM Healthcare Partnership project at the Ulster Hospital Phase B2 - Inpatient Ward Block, was recognised at the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) 2017 National Site Awards in London recently.

The awarding of the prestigious Most Considerate Site Award for projects over £50m is a deserved acknowledgement of the project team, having shown exceptional effort and commitment in pursuit of improving the image and reputation of the construction industry.

The award builds on the Most Considerate Site Runner-Up Awards received by the GRAHAM-BAM team in 2015 and 2016.

The project (recently handed over and now in receipt of its first patients) involved the construction of a seven-storey inpatient ward block with 288 ensuite bedrooms, facilitating day surgery, endoscopy and angiography services and provision of a new robotic pharmacy department.

The CCS scheme looks at the measures a construction site project team has put in place to be more considerate towards client stakeholders, local neighbourhoods, the public, the workforce, and the environment.

Judges were impressed with the high standards taken by the GRAHAM-BAM Healthcare Partnership towards the attractiveness of the site’s presentation which helped to maintain an appropriately low profile within the acute hospital environment, whilst innovating across a range of educational, health and safety, well-being and CSR initiatives.

The project’s engagement with local schools, charities and other stakeholders was also noted for its positive and lasting impression of the industry, while outstanding environmental and safety approaches, exemplified in a successful collaboration with the Northern Ireland Environment Agency, also contributed to the award.

GRAHAM Construction also collected a string of other 2017 CCS awards (as outlined below) which is indicative of the company’s commitment to achieving best practice in construction.
