Taking part in the Dragon Boat Race Doncaster and beating our target of raising £500 for Bluebell Wood Hospice!


A P&W team lead by the MD Anthony Wheatley took part in the Doncaster Dragonboat Race 15th July to raise money for the very worthy Bluebell Wood Hospice.
 
The team and supporters on the day comprised of P&W employees, family members and friends.
 
It was a dismal start to the day (weather wise) but the team embraced the challenge and achieved their objectives:
 
TO WORK AS A TEAM
ENJOY THE DAY
NOT GET WET (for the most part anyway)
 
The team worked hard and the results were better than anticipated
 
Race 1 - 2nd 76.31 seconds
Race 2 - 2nd 67.71 seconds
Race 3 - 2nd 70.25 seconds
 
Overall we came 12th out of 28 teams (just missing out on a place in the semi-finals)  (1st place time 67.46 seconds)  even the sun came out later on in the day.
 
We consider this to be a fantastic achievement for our first time taking part in this event.
 
We have already booked our place in the event next year, our target shall be to make the semi-finals.
 
Most importantly we smashed our target of raising £500 for Bluebell Wood (achieved £761.50 + gift)
 
A big THANK YOU to our team, our supporters and our sponsors.

Pacy & Wheatley | Live Project - Healthcare Design and Build in Harrow, London

Healthcare Design and Build, London


Client: Cygnet Healthcare
Type: New Build & Refurbishment
Location: Harrow, London
Sector: Private Healthcare
Procurement Method: Negotiated 
Project Value: c £3.7 Million

Project Description

Pacy and Wheatley Construction are delighted to be appointed, by our repeat client Cygnet Healthcare, an exciting design and build project within the healthcare sector in London. The programme was developed in conjunction with our client’s team to ensure minimal disruption, and with consideration to our clients business plan to provide 18 additional beds, day spaces, specialist care and staff areas.
The works consist of various extensions to match the existing building facades and a series of phased refurbishments across multiple areas of the hospital. Refurbished areas have been taken back to a masonry shell and the works will include a complete overhaul of the mechanical and engineering installations. New robust specialist doors and furniture, along with bespoke anti-ligature window systems are also to be installed.


The Challenge

Site constraints and location offer up a number of difficulties, due to the tight access, limited parking and construction activities required to facilitate the works. The hospital is to remain live throughout the build programme with access for all staff, visitors and medical professionals.
Careful consideration has been taken to design detailing, and co-ordination with the planning authority is key to the success of integrating the new extensions with the existing hospital.

Pacy & Whealtey | Residential Refurbishment in York

Residential Refurbishment in York

Client: Norstar Ltd
Type: Refurbishment
Location: York, North Yorkshire
Sector: Residential
Procurement Method: Tender
Project Value: c £800,000



Project Description


Pacy and Wheatley are delighted to have been appointed by our new client Norstar Ltd, to complete a Residential Refurbishment on a relatively new office block into a 24 luxury apartments in York. The site access is shared with a working office off a busy city centre route. The structure is around 10 years old and of a steel framed design with large open plan areas. Work is required to remove all internal elements including all services, internal walls and suspended ceiling system. Due to the increase of properties within the building we need to increase incoming supplies meaning a new electrical substation needs to be built along, a new larger water supply and structural alterations to make the building suitable for 24 new apartments.

The Challenge

Completing the complicated design process in a very short time frame. Ensuring that works in and around the nearby office building are undertaken with no negative impact or disruption to the staff by consultation with the office manager about planned work and good forward planning of large deliveries. Co-ordination of all new incoming services and statutory connections and disconnections is critical to achieving the required handover dates for completion.

The Solution

In order to ensure minimal disruption to the offices and units on the shared estate, our site managements team held regular meetings with the office management. Through close communication and planned deliveries we were able to prevent any disruption to the businesses. During new service installations that involved trenching significant sections of the shared access road, we were able to design the trench to allow access to the existing businesses using road plates at the site entrance and moving the services and shot gun installing the ducts.

Key Achievements

The end product in a prime location at the centre of York was a huge success and sold extremely quickly prior to project handover. Through regular design meetings and discussions with both our client and the vendor, we ensured that the finishes and products selected led to very sellable, quality apartments.
