A lift team from Ainscough Crane Hire’s Ipswich Depot has had its hard work, approach to safety and professionalism recognised by the main contractor – Kier Construction – which is building a new 420-place primary school in Norwich.
Recognised as sub-contractor of the month for June 2018 at the site of the emerging St Clements Hill Primary School, the Ainscough team has delivered lifting support to the construction team including assembling the steel frame of the building.
Phil Wright, senior engineer from Kier Construction said: “We were very impressed with the whole team working with us on the project.
“From the earliest stages through to the team carrying out the contract lift, they have all been very professional, working with us when we needed to review works and ensuring that everything was carried out in a safe manner.”
Depot Manager at the Ipswich Depot, Lee Garrett added: “It is always pleasing to receive positive feedback no matter whether it’s from a one-off customer or a long-term client.
“I’m particularly pleased for our lift supervisor Shaun Wingar as this was his first un-shadowed job since receiving his CPCS card. It’s a great credit to the whole team and reflects well on them, our depot and the whole company.”
Construction work started in January 2018 and is expected to be complete at the end of 2018. Once complete, the new school will include a two-storey teaching block, a new main hall and a single-storey area next to an existing sports pavilion.
