The whole thing went flawlessly and was a credit to the planning and preparation that went into it by all the teams involved, and under such scrutiny by the large crowd and media attention. Please pass on my thanks to the Story site team for the professionalism and teamwork that ensured the aforementioned success.

Construction – McVities Flood Defence

I’m delighted to report the site was secured before our very challenging target (that a lot of people thought was impossible), thus ensuring the future protection of the site. This could not have been achieved without the close working relationship we formed with Story Contracting. A great example of collaborative team working.

Construction – Bell Bridge (Cumbria County Council)

Story’s approach to the re-construction of Bell Bridge was professional and showed that they have the necessary experience to undertake projects of this nature. Through the design and construction stages they worked with the IRP team to provide a quality and value for money solution. They supported the IRP team through stakeholder engagement issues resulting in a successful project that was safely delivered and within expected time, cost and quality measures.
