The Cove, Macmillan Cancer Support Centre Shortlisted for RICS Award
27.2.2017

Fantastic news for The Cove Macmillan Cancer Support & Information Centre at Royal Cornwall Hospital which has been shortlisted for this year’s RICS Building Awards.

This beautifully designed building includes some outstanding craftsmanship and has been welcoming cancer patients, their families and friends since it opened in the autumn of 2016.

In partnership with the Royal Cornwall Hospital NHS Trust, Macmillan sought to provide a new Macmillan Cancer Support & Information Centre at the Royal Cornwall Hospital to provide information, care and support to patients, carers and families.

Ridge was appointed to the project after the works had already started on site. From an early stage, the project was under pressure financially from a significant unforeseen drawdown on the construction contingency budget.

Ridge worked closely with the project team to close out outstanding  compensation Events and co-ordinated a more proactive contract administration process to reduce the financial rick. This approach resulted in the project being delivered within the construction budget and without additional funding being required.
