A team from Jackson Civil Engineering, Connect Plus, Maurer and Martins (TM) were winners at this year’s Construction Excellence SECBE Awards 2020 taking home the Value Award for the Weekend Wonder-Shifts: Transforming joint replacement schemes.
The team transformed the delivery of multi-element joint replacement schemes by introducing Weekend Wonder-Shifts which fast-tracked the project programme and designed out the need to install a temporary joint on the structure, delivering the schemes for 30% of their original predicted cost and with 10% of the person-hours compared to the original method.
SECBE panel of judges said: “This entry met all the criteria for this award, was well presented, well evidenced and compelling. The value improvement achieved is so large compared to what was done before as to be almost unbelievable.”
“It shows the gains that can be made even with well-established current methods. Challenging the norm can pay off.”
Jackson’s Framework Manager, Ryan Smith said: “It’s great to see the hard work, professionalism and dedication of the team recognised at an industry level. It’s also very pleasing on a personal level to see the team succeed meeting the objectives of our client and stakeholders involved.’’
