JFM Construction win CEF 2012 Construction Award
15th November 2012
Local firm, JFM Construction, recently won the highly prestigious "CEF Construction Excellence Award 2012” in the Health Infrastructure category for the recently completed Rose Martha Care Home. The award was announced recently at a Gala Evening in the Culloden Hotel, Belfast.
The project, on which JFM Construction was main contractor, consisted of the redevelopment of waste ground into the construction of a new 106 Bedroom Nursing Home in Westbourne Avenue, Ballymena for Runwood Homes Plc and a small Private Housing Development.
The project with a value of nearly £6 million and over 37,500sqft in size was completed in 20 months, 6 months ahead of schedule, in a phased completion and within budget.
The project was finished in two sections with the first completed section being inspected and assessed by the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority. Once certification was achieved, careful planning and implementation was required to coordinate the works, as the first section was now fully operational.
Careful planning and project management ensured that the project was completed within the timescale and budget, while ensuring the health and safety of the people working on site and residents and staff of the care home.
The Project Manager was Neil Scullin, who has been employed by JFM Construction for over 25 years. Joe McLaughlin, Director, stated "We are very pleased to win this highly prestigious award and great credit must be given to all those involved. The team constructed this development to a very high standard, utilising simple design & material choices to achieve a high satisfaction from the Client, Residents and Public end users; whilst striving to be as environmentally friendly as possible”
