norman rourke pryme has been awarded for its project leadership as CDM Co-ordinators on The Camborne Public Rooms in Cornwall, to create 18 Nr. Affordable units for occupation by the over 50’s.
Over a number of years this building presented numerous CDM co-ordination issues and the award is for excellence in Design and Construction Health and Safety Risk Management.
The Association of Project Safety (APS) annual awards are the construction industry’s premier showpiece for excellence in design and construction health and safety risk management. The team were also shortlisted for CDM Co-ordinator Of The Year.
In its past glory The Camborne Public Rooms was the centre of Holmans No. 3 rock drill works. For 200 years Holmans was a major employer for a community steeped in mining history. When mining declined the site fell derelict for 15 years with some buildings on the verge of collapse.
Numerous health and safety issues were incurred and carefully managed by norman rourke pryme on behalf of client, Coastline Housing. They included: Structural collapse and the installation of a hangman’s gallows to minimise operative entry to the site; asbestos contamination and the sequencing of its removal; the installation of a movement activated CCTV surveillance system; the removal of tons of pigeon guano and the following environmental deep clean and the management of site waste.
Matt Maslen of norman rourke pryme said: ‘Regeneration of this iconic building in a World Heritage site demanded best practice and we were pleased to deliver this award-winning project to the satisfaction of our client. We are very proud to have our work on this project recognised nationally by the APS.’
