The Bristol Royal Infirmary, also known as the BRI, is a large teaching hospital situated in the Centre of Bristol.
As part of the £80 million redevelopment of the BRI, contractors Willmott Dixon appointed Briggs Amasco / Hyflex Roofing to apply a total of 1,900 sq mts Hyflex Exemplar Cold Applied Liquid Waterproofing. Completed on time and on budget, our relationship with this major client continues to grow and have subsequently completed additional contracts, all to the satisfaction of the client.
On completion of the BRI Bristol Project, Willmott Dixon completed a Performance Review and we are pleased to show the results as a PDF download.
Hyflex has received high praise for the work they completed at Farringdon Academy School, Sunderland, Tyne and Wear. Peter Dalby, Associate Director of Summers Inman who were consultants on the project, rated Hyflex 9 out of 10 on various categories such as overall quality of product or commission and overall quality of service. Peter also scored Hyflex 10 out of 10 for “completion of contract to agreed cost.” Peter went on to comment “Hyflex provided an excellent service with trustworthy, reliable site operatives and friendly, non-contractual commercial team. The quality of the end-product was excellent and both ourselves and the end-users were delighted with the overall performance.”
Built by Morgan Sindall, the project forms the latest stage of the £400 million Hull Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme. Faced with a series of failing roofs, the main contractor turned to Hyflex Roofing, part of leading waterproofing and roofing specialist BriggsAmasco.
“Hyflex was selected primarily because of their extensive experience, and in-house expertise from detailing and design, procurement and management of the works on site, commented Paul Limb, project manager, Morgan Sindall. “This combined with the known quality of their workforce provided a winning formula for this element of the works.”
With minimal disruption key, the Hyflex scope of work for the composite panel roofs on a number of pitched roof areas included all on-site health and safety requirements, including scaffolding, access towers and anti-vandal office unit, security store and welfare unit.
One of the most important factors of the contract was the very tight schedule for the scope of works. The work had to be completed during the college holiday break mainly due to the large amount of scaffolding involved which had to be completely removed from site before the students returned to the college.
“The team responded well to the short deadlines which ensured the challenging project could be delivered on time, on budget and to an exceptionally high standard,” added Paul Limb.
Following the removal and replacement of perimeter flashings to facilitate access to gutters and to seal bottom area of sheets, Hyflex completed the detailing work using the company’s Exemplar PMMA system with a finish coat of a light grey retroflect finish as specified by the contractor and client.
In line with Morgan Sindall’s exceptional environmental standards, Hyflex utilised designated skips on site to recycle all waste produced where possible, and dispose of the rest to demonstrate it had been disposed of correctly and in line with current environmental regulations.
Working closely with WB Projects, Hyflex completed two roofing applications during the expansion and refurbishment of the North Street and East Street branches of Marks and Spencer. Project Manager Tom Murphy praised the construction team, saying, “Thank you all for your hard work not only on North Street but also East Street. Both stores have been delivered to an exceptionally high standard.”
The North Street store, completed in November 2011, included the construction of an additional 8,000 square feet of retail space, whilst the East Street store was revamped with wider shopping aisles and a new coffee shop. The projects also helped to create 85 new jobs at the high street chain.
Following the successful handover of both stores, Tom Murphy added, “Once again, thank you all for your hard work in delivering the two stores and I look forward to working with you all again in the near future.”
