Project: GMB Union, Cardiff
Client name: GMB Union
Client overview: GMB is a trade union representing 700,000 members.
Brief description of the scheme: Jehu was contracted to undertake extensive external and internal refurbishment of the existing GMB building on Newport Road, Cardiff with associated external works.
Additional information: Situated on Newport Road arguably the busiest street in Cardiff, this project necessitated a focused and fully co-ordinated management plan for all health and safety and access issues throughout the course of the scheme, in order to safeguard members of the public and ensure an efficient build process.
All deliveries and construction related traffic movements had to be carefully planned to avoid the busy or high risk periods. The existing rear car park area was utilised for material storage with materials distributed to each floor level via a hoist.
