The Sewell Group

 Award Winning Construction Company Chooses AVFlex GreenSpace

The Sewell Group, a Times Top 100 company for three years running, has also been chosen by Hull City’s Primary Care Trust to be its estates and development partner through Citycare a Hull based property development company.

The partnership has been a huge success with around £50m expenditure so far on nine healthcare schemes in Hull. The latest construction development being progressed by Citycare is the £14.7m Bransholme Health Centre at Goodhart Road. This flagship development will replace an existing building which has become far too small to offer the increasing range of healthcare services that are needed.

At the heart of the construction site is one of Wernick Hire’s AVflex secure modular accommodation site offices. An AVflex can be tailored to offer partitioned or open plan accommodation to a very high standard. In this particular case the AVflex is an ECO system, a specification considered essential to match the Sewell Group’s 2011 Gold Award for the Considerate Constructor’s Scheme.

Additional specification for the AVflex ECO includes under drawn floors, which provide a double steel skin packed with 220mm of insulation, double glazed windows, convector heaters fitted with timers, PIR controlled lighting, door closers, push taps and dual flush WC’s.

The eleven bay AVflex at the Bransholme Health Centre is equipped with a canteen, locker-room and a toilet and shower room on the ground floor. The first floor has a large open-plan meeting room, offices, a kitchen and male and female toilets. A fenced safety walkway with a tarmac floor has also been fitted around three sides of the AVflex. Project manager Cavan Gray-Nicholson said of his top-of-the-range site accommodation, “This is my showroom. From here the client or their representatives, who visit the site regularly, can view progress in comfort from a safety guarded walkway on the first floor. I am really happy with this installation; it is the highest specification site office I have ever worked in”.

The internal fittings of an AVflex secure modular accommodation site office can be tailored to suit individual site needs, but standard fittings would normally include double electric sockets, IT and telephone points in dado trunking, convector heaters, category 2 lighting and carpeted areas on the first floor, but additional options can include furniture for sale or hire and comfort cooling. The Bransholme Health Centre AVflex was supplied finished in the Sewell Group colour scheme.
