Throughout the project we engaged with Lakes College and students from local schools to provide work experience opportunities as part of our commitment to inspiring the next generation of talent in the industry. This included our bespoke virtual work experience programme which enabled students to gain valuable experience despite the challenges of the COVID pandemic.

This work experience programme also included 14 students attending a socially-distanced site visit at Lakes College, with further students also attending site later on in the project.

The project team worked in close collaboration with the architect and structural designers to resolve ongoing issues which arose throughout duration of the project. Maintaining this collaborative relationship enabled us to quickly implement practical solutions to keep the works moving and without impacting the final project outcome.

Our team also worked through numerous methodologies for the site’s new culverts, enabling approval to be quickly received from the Environment Agency.
