Project Description

These projects involved the fast track conversion of existing industrial units into offices with new warehousing and extensive external works. Projects ranged in size from 650m2 to 26,000 m2. Shaylor Group were one of three contractors on a national roll-out programme and delivered up to three projects simultaneously carrying out schemes in Telford, Grantham, Lincoln, Hednesford and Nottingham. With a tender period of less than two weeks and a contract period of only eight weeks on some projects, with design development being carried out as work progressed, we had a challenging task. Completion to programme was the key factor for the client and the end date was immovable under any circumstance. Long and short term programmes were employed and were reviewed by the project team daily on each site, to monitor progress. Our performance was to such a level that Shaylor Group was named as winner of the ‘‘Integration and Collaborative Working’ Award for the Western Power Distribution Programme at the Celebrating Construction Awards 2013.
