The Bourne Group has always taken pride in high standards of health and safety, sustainability, and in respecting local communities. It is for this reason that Bourne has adopted the Considerate Constructors Scheme, to ensure these high standards are maintained and raised across all of our projects, as well as to provide an independent verification of our performance.
Over 90,000 sites and more than 1000 companies are registered with the Considerate Constructors Scheme, recognising the many advantages that come with being part of an organisation actively helping to improve the image of the construction industry.
Sites, companies and suppliers that choose to register with the Scheme are monitored against a five-point code of Considerate Practice which commits them to care about appearance, respecting the community, protecting the environment, securing everyone’s safety and valuing their workforce.
Bourne Steel is pleased to announce that they have now secured the Project Mint contract with ISG.
The project lies within the O2 (formerly known as the Millennium Dome) on the Greenwich Peninsula and when complete, it will give a unique 360 degree walk through experience within the dome.
Approximately 1800 tonnes of steel will be erected to form a mainly two storey, high end retail shopping mall, complete with curved and galleried staircases, scenic lifts, and a feature ceiling above the pedestrian zones.
The construction will be extremely demanding, working on multiple faces, in a live public area and under a tented dome.
Steel work will commence at the beginning of March 2017 and will be complete by Christmas 2017.

Passengers travelling into London from Kent and south east London will now be able to use the first two-thirds of the new station concourse at London Bridge, as a major milestone has been reached in the station’s redevelopment.
The Southern two thirds of the concourse, platform 7, 8 and 9 and the extended terminus platform are now open to the public along with the temporary pedestrian routes through the Western arcade and Stainer Street.
Working for Costain, Bourne Special Projects were responsible for the erection of much of the structural steelwork including staircases and decking to the four staff accommodation blocks, three of which are under the existing Victorian brick arches and one in the new concourse area. Bourne Special Projects also provided the steel frames for new retail units situated in the concourse area and the east and west entrances, as well as the customer information office.
All of this work has been created underneath the existing live railway, enabling London Bridge Station to remain open for the 56 million passengers that travel through it each year.
