Contract Type: JCT Design & Build

The Emerson Group and PE Jones Contracts (Manchester) Ltd (“PEJC”) have a long standing relationship with East Cheshire Hospice. In addition to construction of parts of the existing Hospice the Group has been a regular supporter of its fund raising activities.

As part of its on-going development the Hospice secured planning approval for a new Clinical Annexe and approached PEJC for assistance with the implementation of the project. The new state of the art facility features a curved footprint with extensive use of roof glazing and “green” sedum roofing. Working closely with the Hospice and its professional advisers, (Architect, Structural and Services Engineers and Quantity Surveyor) Jones Contracts acted as “Management Contractor” to carry out construction of the £2 million project. Working collaboratively on an open book basis competitive tenders were sought for work packages and Jones Contracts undertook management and attendances for the principal works on site on a fixed cost basis.

Given the sensitivity of the surroundings all of the works were carefully sequenced following full consultation and coordination with key hospice staff. In broad terms initial phasing concentrated on the new build facilities, which were brought into operational use to create access for works within the existing buildings.

Regular design meetings continued in parallel with procurement activities to ensure that the work packages were contained within the overall cost plan whilst providing the desired levels of quality in the new facility. The Hospice took full benefit from the savings which were achieved in this process.

PE Jones Contracts (Manchester) Ltd received a Built-in Quality Award 2009 from the Cheshire East Council in respect of our works at East Cheshire Hospice, Macclesfield.
