Sewells team wins top marks for fire station repurposing project

The Sewell Construction team repurposing Central Fire Station in Hull, working with Hull Esteem on behalf of Ron Dearing UTC, have scored 45/45 in their recent Considerate Constructors Scheme inspection for respecting the community, caring for the environment and valuing their workforce.

A post-inspection point has been awarded for implementing innovative best practice by the team at Sewell Construction engaging with students in producing a 360 degree video tour of the project as it progresses for sharing with wider stakeholders.

The former fire station building is being transformed into a new sixth form centre and STEAM studios for the UTC to increase student places to meet demand and will open from September 2023.

The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a not-for-profit, independently managed organisation that supports and guides positive change in the industry. Monitors are looking for projects that follow the ‘Code of Considerate Practice’ in three key areas, which the site team achieved 15/15 for in each category.

Sewell Construction Project Manager Dave Major said: “We are continuously looking for innovative ways to develop the business and deliver sustainable solutions to help our clients, whilst supporting skills development. This score echoes that and is a testament to the hard work of the team and the quality approach we take when delivering projects.”

The Industry Average for Schools and Colleges sites is 40.77 and there are over 3000 sites currently registered with the scheme nationwide.
