Hythe School Steelwork Signing Event

January 28, 2016 5:15 pm Published by

Cosmur is currently working on the refurbishment and extension of Hythe School. We were all children once and we remember the excitement of seeing construction work in progress, this became even more exciting when it was taking place in our school. We thought that it would be a great idea to involve the children in the process. So our Site Manager, John Laffey, invited some students and teachers to sign the steelwork of the building, prior to the plasterboard being installed. The children were kitted out with hard hats and safety vests and were given a permanent marker to sign and date the event. This was a fascinating and memorable experience for them and something they will remember for a... View Article

Stanborough Park Church

December 2, 2015 4:50 pm Published by

Stanborough Park Seventh-day Adventist Church is situated on parkland in Garston on the outskirts of Watford. The Church is over 85 years old and is considered of special architectural interest and is locally listed. Our relationship through previous projects with the Church and its members was instrumental in understanding their aspirations. The brief was to refurbish and extend the existing ageing Church hall and ancillary rooms providing increased capacity, improving the platform and its visibility, improving lighting and adding an enhanced worship space. Disruption was managed through daily discussions with the Pastor, understanding the needs of the worshippers, implementing a plan to reduce the noise level of works at specific times and erecting a temporary facility in the car park....
