Biggest Brick Foundation Project Completed at JSPCA
The redevelopment of one of the kennel blocks at the JSPCA to create a bespoke Small Animal Centre has been completed with the help and generosity of the Jersey Construction Council’s charity, the ‘Brick Foundation’.
The development of one of the kennel blocks into the new Small Animal Centre at the JSPCA is the biggest project that the Brick Foundation has undertaken to date.
The Brick Foundation is the charity of the JeCC which was set up with the aim of putting something back into the community. They consist of participating companies who offer their services and/or products free of charge or highly discounted. The Brick Foundation run fundraising events throughout the year with the aim of being able to pool these funds along with all the specialist resources they have at their disposal, to carry out one meaningful project each year.
The bespoke Small Animal Centre will now house animals such as rabbits, rodents, reptiles and even kittens. The centre contains purpose-built units to suit the specific needs of each species.
The reason this project was undertaken was for the JSPCA to maximize the value and potential of the St Saviour’s road site, in order to be sustainable for many years into the future. Whilst in no way sacrificing the needs of the animals. This building will now clear the way for all the future projects that the JSPCA has in mind in order to achieve these goals.
Steve Jewell, Chairman of the Brick Foundation said “I’m extremely proud and grateful for my Jersey Construction Council colleagues who have come together and pull off the Brick Foundation’s largest ever project. Their generosity seems to know no boundaries and demonstrates how strong their desire is to put something back into our community from our industry. With a fantastic design team, project manager, contractors and suppliers, we’ve delivered in value over £150,000 worth of work to the JSPCA and are immensely proud our smaller charity can help in this way to another that is really part of Jersey’s DNA and serves so many animals, people and families so well”.
Andy Fleet (Project Manager – Bridgewater Property Management): “We were delighted to be appointed as Project Managers and Health and Safety Project Co-ordinators on this very important project for the JSPCA. The Construction industry has come together to create a much needed facility for the JSPCA at a fraction of the full cost, this has been achieved by over 20 JeCC member companies giving up their time, materials and resources for a great cause”.
Dominic Wilmott (Main Contractor – Hacquoil and Cook): “We were extremely pleased as well as proud to be asked to be main contractor on this project and we would like to thank all our sub-contractors and suppliers who gave their time and materials at huge discounts to enable this worthy project to be completed. We hope that the JSPCA are as happy with the end results as we are, and they get many years use from this new facility”.
