The team demonstrated a strong passion for quality with good systems in place for accepting various elements of work with any non-conformities being swiftly rectified.
The site teams themselves were all hard working and dedicated team players that were a pleasure to work with and I look forward to working with Collinson again in the future.Steve Lee, Project Manager, Kier Group - Steve Lee, Project Manager, Kier Construction
Throughout the contract Collinson were diligent and professional in their approach to their works within a live school environment. The site team respected the school environment that they were in, which was evident by the consistent standard of PPE worn by all operatives and maintenance of plant and equipment.
The very narrow site access was shared with the school but with good planning and site controls all deliveries went like clockwork. All risk assessments, method statements, safe systems of works and fit for work certification were produced on time.
