The nature of the project coupled with the commitment and dedication of the design team, Exeter City Council and SCF, who worked for many years to bring the scheme to site, has set a culture of pride that has continued through the build programme. At each stage everyone has pulled together to not only make the project happen but to upskill the local work force in Passivhaus, educate schools and the community on the benefits and create employment opportunities through Building Greater Exeter
Some project highlights
St Sidwells Point was audited as part of Kier’s Social Value Mark level 2 process. The site team, SCF Management Team and sub-contractors all provided evidence of the social value delivered on the scheme . To this end, Kier was recently awarded the accreditation and is the first company in the Construction industry to have achieved this level of the Social Value Mark.
Despite the challenges of lock down, SSP was a key feature at the virtually held International and UK Passivhaus Conference, the design and construction delivery of the scheme was of huge interest to the attendees and SCF, Space & Place, Kier and the Client, Exeter City Council all attended a lively Q&A session as part of the conference.
