Award Winning Project -Stoke Centre for Urology, The Royal Surrey County Hospital

The Stoke Centre for Urology at The Royal Surrey County Hospital was Highly Commended at the Building Better Healthcare Awards.

The project was a collaboration between ‘The Prostate Project’ charity and the NHS to create a sector-leading new-build facility for treating prostate cancer patients.

The new building, named the Stokes Centre of Urology in honour of Colin Stokes, features a cutting-edge theatre for brachytherapy, which uses tiny radioactive seeds to treat prostate cancer. It also includes ultramodern consulting and treatment rooms, as well as a small laboratory for research.

Completion of the Horizon Technology Park

CBG Consultants had the pleasure in attending a special event on Friday to mark the completion of the Horizon Technology Park, Eynsham. The project was driven by Polar Technology Management Group who specialise in providing advanced engineering technologies based around composite materials and metallic fabrication.

CBG undertook the design of the M&E package and provided construction support throughout the construction of this high-tech production facility and state of the art office suite in Oxfordshire. The building had to meet the stringent needs of the specialist manufacturing machinery and equipment whilst still allowing for future flexibility to enable our client to stay at the forefront of their industry.

Command of the Heights – Fort Amherst, Chatham

Works are progressing well at the Command of the Heights project at Fort Amherst, Chatham.

The National Lottery Heritage Fund scheme includes the adaptation of the casemates of a former Napoleonic fort into an open air theatre, provision of new toilet facilities, and re-landscaping of the waterfront area on the site of a former MOD depot. The fort itself is a Scheduled Ancient Monument, largely looked after by a dedicated team of volunteers. CBG Consultants have worked with Medway Council and pdp Green Consulting on the delivery of the project since 2016, and it is great to see it come into fruition, with Coleman James as main contractors. Watch out for an official opening in September 2019. (📸 Phil Pead – Medway Council)

 

CBG Consultants achieves Investors in People (IIP) Silver Standard

We are pleased to announce that after 10 months of hard work we have been accredited as an Investors in People (IIP) Silver organisation.

Investors in People is the international standard for people management, defining what it takes to lead, support and manage people effectively to achieve sustainable results. Underpinning the Standard is the Investors in People framework, reflecting the latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry. IIP is about empowering the talent within the organisation to create greater success.

The level of service that we provide to our clients is directly related to the development and calibre of our team and we are proud to support the learning, development and career progression of those working with us.

To achieve the silver accreditation, surveys were used to shape our company’s values and vision and identify how we can improve our working practices, culture and environment for the good of everybody. Auditors measure our performance based on the IIP framework which is organised around nine key indicators of high performance, each with three underpinning themes.

Successful accreditation against the IIP Standard is the sign of a great employer, an outperforming place to work and a clear commitment to sustainability, so we are very proud to have passed this assessment, and to now be fully accredited until 2021.
