We carry out a wide range of projects within Sussex and neighbouring counties including new build, refurbishment, conversion, extension and enabling works.
Cheesmur have constructed many high quality residential projects for domestic and private clients, developers and registered providers. These have been delivered via both traditional and design and build contracts. We have excellent relationships with many of the registered providers of affordable housing across the region and are firmly committed to successfully partnering with all clients. We are fully aware of the need to deliver commercially viable schemes and work closely with our clients to achieve a high quality end product within the required programme and budget.
Commercial projects have long formed a significant part of the Company’s workload. We have particular experience and expertise in working in sensitive situations providing a service within occupied premises whilst minimising disruption to the end users and occupants alike. Full and detailed assessments and working method statements are researched and prepared to fully protect the health, safety and security of staff, visitors, site operatives and the general public.
Educational establishments are working communities and we liaise closely with them to ensure that we work within the constraints of the academic programme. Health, safety and security are key issues around the entire site and the designated access routes. By working closely with the end users to understand their key drivers we are able to concentrate fully on programmes and work methods and minimise disturbances during teaching and exam periods to ensure that disruptive work is programmed at less sensitive times. Recent successful projects have demonstrated our ability to deliver fast track school and university projects to programme and budget whilst maintaining excellent relationships with the client management team and end users.
As befits a Company founded in 1936 we have extensive expertise in building restoration and this has allowed us to undertake substantial refurbishment and construction projects within the heritage sector. Our skilled conservation team have vast experience of working on many of our local prestigious buildings, including the Brighton Bird Cage Bandstand, Eastbourne Bandstand, Eastbourne Wish Tower and Anne of Cleves House in Lewes. We combine both traditional and innovative methods to achieve quality and lasting finishes in a manner sympathetic to the aesthetics of the building.
The Company has considerable experience in the health sector and as well as completing a number of projects for private clients, we have also worked closely with the local health authorities and local hospitals. Recent projects include new doctor’s surgeries, extensions and refurbishments to hospital premises and large scale roof repairs and plant replacement.
Our facilities management team undertakes many planned and responsive maintenance projects for local and regional authorities, registered providers, NHS Trusts and educational establishments. Much of this work is delivered through long term framework and maintenance agreements. Properties served by our team include residential care homes, local government premises, affordable housing, hospitals and medical facilities across the region. We also provide an emergency responsive 24/7 call-out service for 365 days of the year. We have developed realtime project specific job and cost monitoring systems, customised to meet each clients’ requirements and made available through a remote access portal, thus providing our clients with accurate and up-to-date progress and cost data. This service is available to all clients.
