This month’s edition of Premier Construction Channel Islands Construction Focus offers up a selection of fantastic projects – from new builds to restorations – which are taking place across Guernsey and Jersey.
In this edition we profile the impressive work of ROK Construction; take a look at the brand new J1 development; and highlight the work being undertaken to improve efficiency at Vale Power Station.
Founded in 2007, ROK Construction is guided by company directors Graham Seaford and Robert Matthews and is currently involved in a number of development schemes, including the HMP La Moye project and the £450,000 Mainview project.
Meanwhile, the £150 million J1 development is underway to provide 300,000 sq ft of the highest quality office space in Jersey. Located in St Helier, the site is currently the largest private development on the island and will also provide a brand new covered atrium with ground floor retail space for the public to enjoy.
In addition, a £13 million project to improve electrical efficiency at Vale Power Station, Guernsey is currently underway.
The project comprises the installation of a Wärtsilä 18V46 engine diesel generator to supplement the existing diesel generators which are currently in use at the power station.
In this month’s issue we also feature coverage of the Jersey Construction Awards 2012.
The event – organised by Jersey Construction Council – featured nine categories, including Industry Achiever of the Year, JeCC Tradesperson of the Year and Project of the Year Under £1 million. In addition, a tenth category as voted for by the JeCC board members was also included to mark the JeCC Lifetime Achiever Award. Winners at this year’s Jersey Construction Awards included Geomarine for its work on the Greve De Lecq Rockface Repair project and A A Langlois Haulage Ltd who received the Rossborough Sub-Contractor/Supplier of the Year award.
