“Cygnum’s Passivhaus experience coupled with their hands-on and collaborative management approach to the design-development and construction of the timber structure was instrumental in the success of this challenging and unique project for Kier. Problems were encountered but they were addressed and resolved without drama”.

Cygnum Timber Frame Ltd has undertaken construction of a timber frame to a three storey and four storey blocks of flats for Hutton Construction at Marks Gate, Romford.  We found Cygnum to be helpful and they achieved what they said they would in terms of programme.  They were particularly helpful when problems were discovered in the design of a steel frame and they quickly rescheduled deliveries to change their sequencing to erect one half of a block followed by the other half rather than erecting floor by floor.

Ian Chorlton – Senior Build Manager comments on Cygnum’s performance during their contract period on the Chichester Travelodge.
The design team were approachable and attended regular design team meetings, liaising with the Engineer and Architect to resolve issues and progress the design to construction issue drawings.

Supply schedule issued and generally adhered too, any changes were notfied, a three day delay was caused to the second floor due to the factory being unable to produce floor cassettes quickly enough, the job was reprogrammed by Cygnum to rectify and they still acheived the agreed completion date.

The site team lead by Michael worked safely and effectively any concerns were raised and dealt with efficiently, a good working relationship existed throughout the contract duration of 7 weeks.  Michael was awared the monthly Health & Safety award, and his whole team of fixers have worked to their method statement and adhered to all H & S requirements.

Finally Willmott Dixon would be happy to work with Cygnum on future projects.
