Kier Construction

Robert Palmer MCIOB

Rob Palmer’s impressive construction knowledge, collaborative intensity and analytical approach to problem solving overcame the logistics constraints of a tight courtyard site. He made this scanner block scheme financially viable by changing the facade treatment and connecting to the site’s existing services rather than installing independent generators and water chillers. He also pulled off an eye-of-a-needle success in delicately manoeuvring a seven-tonne MRI scanner through a warren of buildings and into the new build’s first floor.
