Royal visit to newly refurbished King David School, Liverpool
HRH Prince Edward visited the newly refurbished King David High School in Liverpool and met with staff from VINCI Construction UK who implemented the refurbishment project. Armco were appointed to undertake Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys of King David High School, Primary School and Harold House.
Prince Edward, HRH the Earl of Wessex, became the first official guest at the new King David High School on Childwell Road in Liverpool on Wednesday 25th May. The project was awarded by Liverpool City Council to VINCI Construction UK as part of the Liverpool Building Schools for the Future (BSF) framework.
VINCI Construction UK recently became a supporter of the Duke of Edinburgh’s (DofE) Award and as a Trustee of the DofE, the Prince visited the new school site and met with staff members including Gary Kays and Sam Finch who are currently participating on the VINCI DofE Business Gold Award programme.
Gary Kays commented on his experience so far on the programme, saying: “the DofE experience has given me the opportunity and confidence to participate and share my views with colleagues, both inside and outside of the work environment, through the team working challenges that we have faced to date.” In the evening, the Prince attended a fund raising event in support of the DofE, held at Knowsley Hall, whos guests included John Stanion and Chris Hamer.
Armco Asbestos Consultants were asked to undertake the identification of asbestos on the project. This entailed the implementation of three Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys on: King David High School, King David Primary School and Harold House. These were large buildings and Armco generated Survey Reports of around 200 pages each which detailed the asbestos findings and recommendations, including plans. Armco Asbestos Consultants and VINCI Construction UK continue to have a successful working relationship.
