Ongoing & Essential Works…

- 2nd April 2020
As mentioned in our previous blog post we are striving to meet the demands of all of our existing clients with regard to essential works.
Last week we completed our works at pharmaceutical company Johnson Matthey, supplying and laying Ucrete UD200 to their solvent store, critical work which had to be completed within the planned shutdown to allow them to maintain operations.
With these works being north of the border in Edinburgh, this did present challenges in finding accommodation & maintaining the new social distancing rules. We had two hotels close whilst we were in residence, but were able to find alternative accommodation and complete the works
With the issue of hotels in mind, whilst not discounting out of town works completely at the present time, we will certainly take each job into careful consideration.
This week we have been carrying out flooring maintenance works for two longstanding clients who this week teamed up to provide two local NHS sites with free sandwiches. Wm. Jackson Food Group teamed up with Cranswick Foods to provide free sandwiches to staff at the Hull Royal Infirmary & Castle Hill Hospital.
Hull’s Champion Bread manufacturers, Jacksons’s of Yorkshire, found that flooring in the blast chiller had failed over the weekend and was already posing a health & safety risk. If not repaired this would likely deteriorate, further jeopardising operations. With ALL the bread made in the factory passing through these chillers prior to being loaded for distribution it is not hard to see why these works were classed as essential.
We are also still active on a number of Cranswick Foods sites in the area. These works are usually maintenance & repair, and required by food safety law to allow the factories to continue producing food safely.
We ask any client, new or old, to contact us to discuss any essential works they may require, but to please bear in mind we will be working with a reduced work force from next week when the furloughing of the workforce has been confirmed.
