RPA are delighted to announce that early 2015 sees the commencement on site of the new Eastwood Park Training Centre, at Wotten-under-Edge. Our role is as Employers Agent and Quantity Surveyor.
Eastwood Park is a unique organisation that provides high level training programmes to medical and vocational industries. The new Training Centre is one of the first buildings in the country that will be able to offer delegates state of the art training facilities over a range of specialist industries. The building is to be constructed to very specific specification to create training environments that are designed to exactly replicate those that can be found in e.g. hospital theatres, dental surgeries and decontamination units.
The project team has had to overcome numerous challenges in getting the project to this brown field site. It is the first non-government project in the UK to be granted a specialist Natural England licence in relation to the ecological challenges faced.
Alongside the construction of the new building, the project will include demolition works as well as a complete overhaul of the utilities that serve the existing Eastwood Park mansion and the new Training Centre development.
