04 Sep What Did You Do Over The Summer?
While the country was baking in the longest, hottest heatwave since 1976, here at Sherwoods we experienced our busiest summer yet! With several large projects being carried out our engineers really went above and beyond. For us, the summer is often the only time our education-based clients can close for long enough to complete works.
One of the biggest and most interesting was a refurbishment project at The Spires College. We completed the refurb of two science laboratories, including re-routing gas supply and electrical supply, not to mention the complete refit of all built in furniture, sinks and water supplies. New flooring and complete re-decoration. In addition, at the same site, two art rooms, refitted, refurbished, new floors and redecorated. Two bathroom refurbishments, including all fittings and sanitary ware, tiled, floored and decorated AND we installed 30 interactive whiteboards and numerous new locks to the internal doors. A mammoth task that really pushed our engineers; but, as always, they dug deep and delivered the job to our highest standards. So much so that yesterday we received this from their Contract Manager, David Murray.
Good Afternoon Kev,
We have reached the end of our summer works 2018. As you and your team are very aware, Sherwoods were a major part of these works.
I would like to express my thanks to each and every one of your team who delivered a high volume of works, to schedule and great standard.
There were a number of pressure points along the way coupled with other operational conflicts that were responded to with ultimate professionalism.
I cannot single out anyone of your team as they were all fantastic from beginning to end.
I look forward to further collaborative works in the future.
Thank you for taking the time to write to us David, it is appreciated by everyone at Sherwoods.
Are we proud of our team? You bet we are! Each and every person, from the engineers on site to our office team scheduling the works and arranging for materials to be delivered on time and to our Finance team making sure the suppliers were paid on time. There were even Team Leaders and Directors, on site, getting their hands dirty to ensure that everything was completed in time for today…first day back at school! We all hope that those young people fortunate enough to be at The Spires College enjoy their new facilities and who knows, perhaps some of the next generation of Sherwoods engineers are there right now, being inspired for their future careers.
Have a great day and remember, always #BeTheBestThatYouCanBe
