PROjEN’s exceptional Health & Safety record continues benefiting a local Stevenage charity
PM PROjEN, a specialist engineering Project Management Company, based in Preston Brook, Cheshire is pleased to announce the safe delivery of yet another successful project at GlaxoSmithKline’s Stevenage R&D Pilot Plant. This success has also benefitted the Stevenage Community Trust with a donation of £530 via PROjEN’s Safety Incentive Scheme.
PROjEN has been providing a professional project management service for GSK and been involved in the delivery of over 200 projects with a capital value in excess of £100 Million. The latest “ADAPT Laboratory project” saw PROjEN successfully complete 16,000 construction man hours without a single minor, major or reportable incident. To raise Health & Safety awareness many projects that PROjEN manage are delivered under a Safety Incentive Scheme through which money is donated to local charities and good causes following good safety performance. PROjEN have completed almost 900,000 man hours of work with zero reported injuries to PROjEN personnel and donated thousands of pounds to good causes – on this occasion the Stevenage Community Trust benefitting to the tune of £530.
The ADAPT Laboratory project consisted of the major demolition, remodelling and refit of a redundant process module to provide laboratory facilities over three floors. PROjEN worked closely with the end users to develop the most suitable layouts then managed the installation of specialist laboratory equipment and multiple trades to provide the service infrastructure required to support all laboratory activities and safety requirements.
PROjEN acted as Principal Contractor and delivered the project with excellent Health & Safety performance to match all preceding projects completed on site and within both budget and schedule. The benefit to the GSK business was to increase available laboratory area without increasing overall footprint.
Stevenage Community Trust is an independent charitable trust, which raises funds and promotes charitable giving in order to enhance the quality of life of people living in the Borough of Stevenage and its surrounding villages. It was formed in 1990 from an idea by the then Mayor of Stevenage, Councillor Hilda Lawrence. It is based on a concept of Community Foundation schemes that have been running for almost 50 years in the United States. The Trust is unusual in the fact that it is a small organisation but it is locally based with all the local knowledge and contacts. The Trust has given out over £770,000 in grants since it started, as well as building up an endowment for the future.
PROjEN’s Managing Director, Martin Seabrook comments:
“PROjEN is pleased to have been involved in yet another project at GSK. The team has been party to numerous success stories and is regularly marked top in GSK’s table of service providers. Like many projects I know this assignment was difficult but its success was the result of much hard work and commitment. I’m particularly pleased that we maintained the high level of Health and Safety awareness on the projects we manage. Our exceptional Health and Safety record of 11 consecutive RoSPA Gold Awards is the result of consistency across a number of sites”.
