Constructing Excellence South West Awards 2020
Following our announcement that we had been selected as finalists, for the Offsite Award, with our case study ‘Why is the time now right for offsite’; we are delighted to announce that we won the category and the Winner of Winners award in collaboration with Magna Housing, Rollalong Ltd and Complex Asset Management Solutions (CAMS), will now go forward to the Constructing Excellence National Awards. We are glad that our work has been recognised so highly and are hopeful for another win!
Steve Chivers, Managing Director of Rollalong, said: ‘Winning these two awards from Constructing Excellence South West is testament to the culture that exists within the partnership. Rollalong set out to innovate, and to achieve that common goal you must collaborate, drawing from the strengths of every alliance member – truly great collaborations push the boundaries of all partners.
“Aggregating demand through the engagement of new clients with our latest range of environmental upgrades and designs for 2021 will further strengthen the partnership, creating endless opportunities for superb collaboration and growth.”
Paul Read, Assistant Director of Development at Magna Housing, said: “The power of partnership, collaboration and aggregation are the key ingredient behind these two awards.
“Constructing Excellence South West highlighted the internal collaboration within teams and Magna and the wider collaboration between parties focused on whole life value, procurement and product development.
“Right now we are seeing new clients engaging and getting excited by the latest range of environmental upgrades and designs for 2021 now in production – all of course focused on the feedback from clients since the initial demonstration launch.”
Mary Bennell, Director of the South West Procurement Alliance, said: “The award is welcome recognition of what working in partnership can achieve. From a procurement perspective it also demonstrates best practice as Magna Housing started talking to us about procurement and delivery options before selecting their preferred provider, Rollalong.
“We look forward to more awards for the all-electric house!”
Craig Demanuele, Managing Director of CAMS, said: “Our goal at Complex Asset Management Solutions Ltd is to work with our clients to adopt a whole-life cost-focused approach to managing homes, from cradle to grave.
“By applying the asset management principles set out in ISO 55001 to create an innovative and new Strategic Asset Management Plan, Magna Housing was able to demonstrate a strong business case in favour of modern methods of construction (MMC) over traditional builds, something that they were unable to demonstrate prior to this project.
“We are therefore delighted to be recognised along with our partners SWPA, Magna and Rollalong for these two CESW awards.”
The partnership /collaboration continues and a new range of houses that are all electric, SAP rated A are already being manufactured by Rollalong ready for delivery to sites in 2022 using the SPWA Offsite Construction of New Homes (NH2) framework as a procurement route. Other social housing providers are joining to take advantage of the designs, learning and procurement route. The partnership is looking to develop and improve to meet future requirements.
