Globalworth to deploy Honeywell solutions across its commercial building portfolio

Globalworth to deploy Honeywell solutions across its commercial building portfolio

European real estate investor to deploy Honeywell solutions across its commercial building portfolio in Romania and Poland to improve operational efficiency and support sustainability efforts Honeywell announced yesterday that Globalworth, a leading real estate investor in Central and Eastern Europe, has selected its connected technology to help increase operational efficiency, support sustainability efforts, and improve the occupant experience across the Globalworth portfolio of commercial office buildings in Romania and Poland. Globalworth will use solutions from Honeywell Forge for Buildings, a comprehensive approach to building system operations and management, to help improve performance and reduce energy consumption throughout its facilities from a single point of control. Buildings are a primary consumer of energy – the UN Environment Programme 2022 Global Status Report for Buildings and Construction found the building and construction sector accounted for 34% of energy demand and 37% of energy and process-related CO2 emissions in 2021. In Europe, the numbers are even more concerning with the buildings sector accounting for 40% of the continent’s total energy needs, 80% coming from the use of fossil fuels.[i] To help reduce this energy demand, Globalworth will use the machine learning models within Honeywell Forge for Buildings to monitor energy consumption across its buildings, down to a device or asset level, and make automatic adjustments to minimise energy consumption while maintaining occupant comfort and productivity. “We believe that building technologies can provide not only better experiences for our tenants but can also add value in helping to achieve operational and sustainability goals – all without sacrificing occupant comfort. We are investing in Honeywell Forge for Buildings for its ability to integrate systems, improve maintenance, and save energy, with the aim of helping us to optimise our selected building operations,” said Dennis Selinas, CEO of Globalworth Group. Honeywell solutions, including Honeywell Forge Site Performance, Carbon and Energy Management, an application of Honeywell Buildings Sustainability Manager, and Honeywell Sine visitor management solutions, will help Globalworth digitalise real estate operations across its facilities in Romania and Poland. “Building inefficiency is a major challenge to Europe’s overarching climate objectives, and with the continuing energy challenges that Europe faces today, there is a pressing need to update existing buildings across the region with the right technology to maximise their energy credentials,” said Mark Loughran, president, Honeywell Central and Eastern Europe. “Honeywell Forge for Buildings represents a ready now solution to this challenge. Globalworth’s implementation of these offerings will support the company in meeting its environmental targets, while maintaining its occupants’ comfort and reducing its overall operating cost.” Globalworth is an innovator and early adopter of technology to help enable world-class experiences for its blue-chip roster of tenants. The company invests in technologies to continue to help improve the operational efficiency, safety and security, and resilience of its buildings while supporting its sustainability goals.

Winvic enrichment programme launched to get next generation work ready and add social value to projects

Winvic enrichment programme launched to get next generation work ready and add social value to projects

Winvic has successfully delivered the first hands-on training sessions to Northampton College engineering students as part of the new Winvic Enrichment Programme. The initiative provides students with up to five days of construction industry insights, gives them practical experience related to their studies and develops their soft skills. It also helps Winvic, suppliers and clients to meet strategic social value goals, while it supports further education establishments to meet their enrichment activity targets. The first Winvic Enrichment Programme is being delivered over a number of weeks in collaboration with client Prologis UK at The Hub at DIRFT, which is a new training, meeting and café facility on the Logistics Park available for occupiers and local businesses to use. A typical programme includes a site tour, an overview of contractor, subcontractor and developer roles and health and safety awareness training, and teaches CV writing, interview and presentation techniques. The first programme has been tailored with Northampton College to meet the needs of the 16 BTEC Engineering students who are in their first and second years of study; therefore sessions include hands-on setting out equipment training, a practical lesson on concrete mixes and a demonstration of concrete slab pouring inside an industrial warehouse. A number of Winvic’s subcontractors are involved to help get the students work ready across a variety of our planned programmes, including Stanford Flooring, Sitecrete and Collins Earthworks, who provided minibus transport for the students’ first day at The Hub at DIRFT and will be delivering a practical session about on-site plant using their machines later in the programme. Winvic delivered the DIRFT III Rail Infrastructure extension project and is currently constructing two large industrial units for Prologis at the site – the 327,000 sq ft DC327 and 628,000 sq ft DC628. Enquiries to training@winvic.co.uk about the Winvic Enrichment Programme are welcome from further education providers across the country; developed to be flexible and delivered over one week or day release, programmes are tailored to the college course or courses. Recent changes to the T-Level pathway mean one third of the required placement hours can now be undertaken as enrichment sessions. Kayleigh Merritt, Winvic’s Talent Development Manager, said: “We have been working to shape the Winvic Enrichment Programme for some time with subcontractors, clients and colleges, so it’s exciting to see it coming to life with students already giving wonderful feedback. Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do at Winvic and our experience in delivering social value activities illustrates that you can always do more and benefit more people when you work together. The Winvic Enrichment Programme supports the objectives of our clients and building occupiers, further education providers – offering numerous qualifications – and students who want to be work ready, armed with practical experience and accomplished soft skills. I’d like to thank everyone who has been involved so far and I’m looking forward to rolling the five-day initiative out to many more projects in the future.” David Mellor, Director – Development Management, Prologis UK, commented: “Early engagement with students from Northampton College has been great fun and we’re delighted to have been able to support Winvic with their initiative here at The Hub at DIRFT. Students have come away from their days with us enthused about the engineering opportunities we presented – whilst developing key skills to support their employment application process.” Paul Bailey, Teacher in Construction and the Built Environment at Northampton College, added: “Thank you to everyone at Winvic, Prologis and other subcontract firms for the time and effort that they have put into the impressive Enrichment Programme. We very much appreciate all of your effort in enabling this to happen for the benefit of the students, to allow them to meet with a range of professionals from the construction industry in an excellent training environment, as well as experience a live construction site and concrete batching plant. This programme has certainly broadened the student’s knowledge and understanding, which has enhanced their teaching experience, as well as providing Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for teaching staff – they all clearly enjoyed the day, as did l.” Building, Design & Construction Magazine | The Choice of Industry Professionals

Hydrogen production to take centre stage as industry leaders convene to explore infrastructure opportunities

Hydrogen production to take centre stage as industry leaders convene to explore infrastructure opportunities

As the UK Government targets 10GW of hydrogen production by 2023, industry leaders will convene at the Planning for Hydrogen Infrastructure 2023 event on 23 May, to explore strategies and planning for building successful hydrogen infrastructure projects – from concept to reality. Theevent, hosted by international law firm Eversheds Sutherland in London, will provide an opportunity for the key players in hydrogen infrastructure to come together and share ideas in a growth area for the energy sector. The rise in hydrogen production presents a dual opportunity to tackle the energy crisis and reduce emissions with a cleaner alternative. The event will explore how new hydrogen projects can be successfully delivered, and provide attendees with valuable insights on planning strategies, site selection, stakeholder engagement, and consultation practices. It will also cover the latest policy developments supporting hydrogen production, infrastructure needed to meet the demand, and funding options available. The day will allow hydrogen and planning leaders to share ideas to address existing challenges and discuss ways to support future development. A key topic under discussion at this year’s one-day event will be ScottishPower’s new business division that focuses on green hydrogen, and what the company’s first projects in this area will mean for communities. There will be a range of panel discussions throughout the day. Helen Sanders, Head of Policy and Sustainability at SSE Thermal, James Walker, Senior Manager – Hydrogen Strategy at Ofgem and Jubilee Easo, International Head of Hydrogen at Eversheds Sutherland, will examine the current policy direction for hydrogen production, and what more Government can do to support the industry hit its 10GW by 2030 target. While Chris Rowell, Clean Growth and Innovation Manager at Tees Valley Combined Authority and Chris Taylor, Head of Planning and Consents at Progressive Energy, will discuss planning and delivering hydrogen infrastructure, and how best to effectively engage with all stakeholders. A range of other leading hydrogen infrastructure experts in the industry will also debate: The event will be chaired by Clare Jackson, CEO at Hydrogen UK. Ms Jackson leads the hydrogen industry association. In 2021, she launched Hydrogen UK, which brings together organisations delivering across the hydrogen value chain to work to make the UK one of the best places in the world to develop and deploy hydrogen solutions. Ms Jackson said: “The Planning for Hydrogen Infrastructure event offers an excellent opportunity for key players in the hydrogen energy sector to come together, share ideas, and develop innovative solutions to address the most pressing challenges facing the industry both in 2023 and beyond. “It’s a critical time for the sector as we look to develop policy and technological innovations that will prioritise energy security and provide the UK with a sustainable, decarbonised energy system, with renewables such as hydrogen at its core. “There will be plenty of opportunities for attendees to network with significant stakeholders in the hydrogen energy sector, including those spearheading cutting-edge hydrogen projects and infrastructure.” The event is being organised by Waterfront Conference Company. Waterfront delivers physical and virtual policy conferences for the planning, energy, rail, ports and maritime sectors.

£750m Professional Services framework renewal unveiled by Pagabo

£750m Professional Services framework renewal unveiled by Pagabo

THE UK’s leading national procurement organisation Pagabo has issued a prior information notice (PIN) for the renewal of one of its biggest construction frameworks, the Professional Services framework. Valued at £750m, this will be the third iteration of the Professional Services framework, which is one of Pagabo’s most popular and active offerings. The new framework will take over from the current iteration when it expires in April 2024 and, like its predecessors, will run for four years. Pagabo will be holding a webinar on 10 May, where interested bidders can find out more about the framework and Pagabo. Jason Stapley, chief procurement officer at Pagabo and its parent organisation The 55 Group, said: “The Professional Services framework is a crucial part of our ecosystem, so it’s really fitting it will come to market around the time the business celebrates its 10th anniversary. “Looking at the way this framework has grown over time really reflects the growth journey we have been on as a business. The current version of the framework is valued at £500m and has already delivered 826 procurements for clients across the UK – and we expect this to grow even further with the renewal. “We know that responding to tenders on tight timescales can be a huge stress, so with our focus on how we can improve mental health and wellbeing in the industry we’ve examined how we can adapt our processes. With the tender period for this framework expected to fall across the school holidays, we have increased the tender period to 10 weeks to make sure bidding doesn’t interfere with people’s home lives or increase stress unnecessarily.” As part an ongoing commitment to supporting SMEs and generating the maximum positive social impact from projects, a proportion of slots will be reserved for SMEs, which currently account for just over half of the suppliers on the framework. With the renewal, Pagabo aims to at least match the proportion of SMEs across all services, making sure that all clients have access to the best suppliers for each and every scheme. Jason said: “SME inclusion goes a long way to ensuring the best social value for communities possible. We know that procurement needs to be social value led, placing the positive outcomes at the heart of the whole procurement process. “That’s why client organisations and appointed suppliers are able to access Loop’s social value software for all schemes procured through our frameworks – making sure that this social value led approach is embedded every step along the way, accompanied by a tool that makes forecasting, monitoring and reporting as easy as possible.” Pagabo will continue to manage this framework on behalf of The Education Alliance Trust, which remain as the contracting authority for the new framework agreement having held the same role on the current version. To sign up for the webinar on 10 May, visit: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_UN5hPLVkSSuP2GGThMnl1Q#/registration For more information, please visit https://www.pagabo.co.uk/ Building, Design & Construction Magazine | The Choice of Industry Professionals

Two Seddon developments win prestigious construction award

Two Seddon developments win prestigious construction award

NEW developments in Preston and Salford have been named among a shortlist of sites in England and Wales to win an award for high standards of construction and site management. Miller Roadand Blandford Road are being built by Seddon and have both been awarded The Bricks Site Recognition Award by LABC Warranty, for their standards of workmanship and overall management of the site, including health and safety matters and general tidiness. The Bricks Site Recognition Award winners are chosen every month and are then further shortlisted at the end of the year, where only the best of those sites will be rewarded with The Bricks annual award trophy, one of the construction industry’s most prestigious awards given to outstanding sites from England and Wales. LABC Warranty is one of the largest providers of structural warranties in the UK. Working in partnership with Local Authority Building Control (LABC), its combined team of more than 3,700 surveyors work with house builders, contractors and housing associations. Sites are scored by LABC Warranty risk management surveyors during their inspection visits, which take place regularly through construction. Those sites that score consistently high for general co-operation with inspectors, health and safety, site tidiness, standard of site management and standard of workmanship are nominated for a Site Recognition Award. Miller Road’s Extra Care side comprises 61 apartments. Offsite production methods have been maximised on this scheme, with the use of a PCC driven piling solution, PCC floor planks, a light gauge steel frame and timer trussed roof. The site at Blandford Road, Salford has 45 units comprising 21 houses. These houses are two and three story, ranging from two to four bedrooms. Blandford Road also offers 24 one and two-bedroom apartments. The whole development is designed to Passivhaus standard with MVHR units (Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery), making the dwellings extremely energy efficient and sustainable. Peter Jackson, Managing Director, from Seddon Housing Partnerships said: “We’re delighted to receive The Bricks Site Recognition Award from LABC Warranty. I’m especially pleased for our staff working on the site as this reward is a recognition of their hard work, professionalism and expertise.” Stephen Galbraith, Development manager at Community Gateway, added: “We are thrilled that Seddon Construction has been recognised for this prestigious award. The Atrium is our new Extra Care Facility for over 55’s on Miller Road, Preston, which will include 61 one and two-bed apartments, plus a bistro, hairdressers, beauty salon, wellness room, activity room, communal lounge, and landscaped garden areas open to both residents and the community. Each apartment benefits from either outdoor garden space or a balcony. The site is currently forecast to complete in December 2023.” Sarah Sheppard, Technical Director at LABC Warranty, said: “It takes skill, commitment and a dedication to quality of construction for a site to receive The Bricks Site Recognition Award. Nothing pleases my team and I more than to see developments meet and maintain such high standards.” For more information about the awards, visit: www.labcwarranty.co.uk/awards Building, Design & Construction Magazine | The Choice of Industry Professionals

British brandy house, Burnt Faith, brought to life by BRAC Contracts

British brandy house, Burnt Faith, brought to life by BRAC Contracts

Burnt Faith, the British Isle’s first dedicated brandy house has opened in Walthamstow following the comprehensive refurbishment of a 250 sq m industrial unit which stands on the site of a former Pentecostal church.  Work on the building’s transformation was carried out by BRAC Contracts and follows a series of work they carried out on the nearby Lockwood Way industrial estate. Simon Wright, founder of Burnt Faith, is a serial entrepreneur in the drinks space and known for breathing fresh life into staid categories.  Walthamstow proved to be the perfect home for the new urban distillery given its vibrancy and creativity, as Simon comments: “This three-year journey was inspired by a trip to Cognac which triggered the seed of the idea for Burnt Faith. I left inspired, not by what Cognac brands are but more by what they could never be. With a vision to push the boundaries of what brandy could be, we were keen to establish Burnt Faith in an area that is buzzing with creativity.  Walthamstow is already home to several breweries and a winery, so it felt like the perfect fit. “The BRAC team had worked on several of the breweries nearby so seeing the quality of those buildings and their creative aesthetic, made them the perfect choice for our project.” The £150k scheme of work on Burnt Faith’s two-storey distillery included full re-wiring and plumbing, lighting throughout, new bathroom facilities, a comprehensive re-paint both inside and out, and most notably the cutting of a 3x8m hole in the ceiling to accommodate the pot still which was imported from France. Commenting on the work carried out by BRAC, Simon continues: “There was a strong vision for the aesthetic of Burnt Faith painted onto a relatively blank canvas. It’s been a journey creatively and the BRAC team was very responsive to the adaptations we’ve made as we’ve gone along – the quality of their work is absolutely clear in the finish we’ve achieved here.” Concluding, Adam Clark, MD at BRAC Contracts, comments: “Having worked on the nearby Lockwood Way industrial estate where there are so many entrepreneurial drinks businesses, it was an honour to be approached by Simon and the team at Burnt Faith to bring their vision to life.  Dealing with the nuances of accommodating a pot still isn’t a challenge we face every day at BRAC, but it’s one that the team dealt with admirably and the distillery is now a truly beautiful and contemporary space. “Walthamstow is enjoying a huge amount of investment and we’d be delighted to work on further projects in the area.” Building, Design & Construction Magazine | The Choice of Industry Professionals

Brand-new city centre park off is to a successful start in its opening week

Pounds Park, the new city centre park situated in Sheffield’s Heart of the City, has enjoyed a successful opening period since being launched on Monday 3 April. Thousands of visitors have headed to the park to see the latest public space to open in the Outdoor City. Within the first week, there have been an estimated several hundred people flocking to the park to enjoy the early spring sunshine, with young children enjoying the slides and other facilities in the dedicated play area.

Doosan Bobcat Shows Material Handling Future at LogiMAT

Doosan Bobcat Shows Material Handling Future at LogiMAT 2023

Doosan Bobcat is showcasing a range of new material handling equipment at the LogiMAT 2023 Exhibition from 25-27 April 2023 at the Stuttgart Trade Fair Centre in Germany, on Stand No B57 in Hall 9, hosted by Doosan Industrial Vehicle (DIV). The LogiMAT stand is split into three areas: “As a company, we are evolving in bold ways to meet our customers’ toughest challenges by offering innovative solutions for a more sustainable future,” said Scott Park, Doosan Bobcat CEO and Vice Chairman. “Alternative-energy products—such as hydrogen—give customers options, while also leading the way towards a more sustainable future and greener tomorrow.” The presence of multiple machines displayed in Bobcat colours is in line with the recent announcement from Doosan Bobcat that the company’s Forklift and Portable Power product lines will transition to become part of the Bobcat product portfolio. Highlights of the Doosan Bobcat stand: Preview of 3-Wheel Electric Forklift with Lithium Battery Doosan is presenting the prototype B18NT 3-wheel electric forklift delivered from the factory with a lithium battery only. The B18NT forklift will be an economy model, to compete with a growing demand in the market for lithium powered electric forklifts in this typical eco segment. The truck being shown at LogiMAT is a preview machine, looking for feedback from the market to see if adjustments need to be made to the final model. New High Capacity Electric Counterbalance Forklifts Also in the second area, Doosan is showing the new B100NS forklift, part of two new ranges of high capacity electric counterbalance forklift trucks recently launched by the company. These new products from 6-10 tonne provide industrial users with a wide choice of zero-emission, low-noise level, environmentally friendly trucks capable of tackling heavy duty tasks. The newly launched B80NS and B100NS heavy-lifting electric trucks with capacities of 8.0 and 10.0 tonne, respectively, offer improved capability, power and performance for businesses across a broad spectrum of industry – from manufacturing, engineering and foundries, to building supplies, transport and warehousing. Hydrogen Fuel Cell-Powered Forklift Concept Another of the highlights of the LogiMAT stand is DIV’s newest B30X-7 Plus hydrogen fuel cell-powered forklift concept. Included in the area dedicated to the Bobcat branded products at LogiMAT, the B30X-7 Plus forklift will be developed under the Bobcat product portfolio as part of the transition of Doosan products into the Bobcat trade dress. Hydrogen fuel cell forklifts offer longer operating times and faster refuelling, making them ideal for applications that require extended use and quick refuelling turnaround. For warehouses operating multiple shifts, the hydrogen fuel cell forklift is a viable option to reduce their carbon footprint while still meeting the operational needs to run longer hours with no charging required. The other Bobcat branded forklifts in this area are the D30S-9 and B20X-7 Plus models. Full Liner Offer from Doosan (Forklifts, Warehouse Trucks, Premium and Economy Products) With the models being shown in this area, Doosan is demonstrating the company’s ability to offer a full line of models for the material handling market. Not only the counterbalanced forklifts the company is known for, but also warehouse equipment products such as pallet trucks, stackers and reach trucks. As another aspect of being a full liner, Doosan is also offering economy models in certain product categories, expanding the company’s portfolio in another direction as well. Models showcased in this area: About Doosan Industrial Vehicle Doosan Industrial Vehicle is a company within the Doosan Group. Since the production of the first forklift in Korea in 1968, the Forklifts Division has been determined to meet customers’ needs for quality material handling supplies and services. All machines are designed to offer simple, powerful and high performance as well as operator comfort and environmental friendliness, that help customers to get the most from their investment.
