Construction – Hallbeck Bridge (Nick Raymond/CCC)

Story Contracting provided a very professional approach to the design and reconstruction of Hallbeck Bridge near Killington. Throughout the process they sought to achieve a buildable, value for money solution. Despite having to deal with a very lively river, the works were completed safely, on time and below budget. The completed scheme looks well and is a credit to all involved.
