Value:          £9,100,000
Duration:   91 Weeks



LOCAL ENGAGEMENT - As a North Wales SME, Read are committed to the support and development of the local supply chain. One success storey from the new school development was the support of two self employed joiners from within 5 miles of the site, to join together and form their own company - McKenzie & Jones Ltd. By providing the fledgling company with a 6 month pipeline of work, they had the support and confidence to expand. Through this and other local contracts, their team grew to twelve full time joiners and two apprentices within 12 months. Alongside the stable workload and cashflow, Read supported them with the supplier approval process, plant and machinery training.

COLLABORATIVE MANAGEMENT - Building on the 'single source' of infromation principle and in the interest of promoting collaborative work practices, Read deployed a portal based Common Data Environment for the project to deal with the management of all construction information. Client, supply chain and designers had access to upload and distribute infromation through the system with risk workshops, contract management workflows and design management all be managed and communicated through the system.

SOFT LANDINGS - Through a structured approach to handover, aligned with the Government Soft Landing (GSL) principles of engaging and exchanging information early and effectively, the handover and occupation of the facility has been achieved with nil disruption to the effectiveness of client operations. Our project delivery team remained assigned as the single point of contact to address ongoing requirements 6 weeks post occupation. By effectively managing the mechanical and electrical installation and ensuring fully communicated progress, early familiarisation training and ongoing support was delivered.



Read Construction believe is important to benefit both the Client by delivering a quality project, but also the local community and areas surrounding the project. This enables the community to engage with the project throughout the building work and be a part of the process.

Read’s Community Benefits Plan addresses ‘Sustainable Procurement’ Environmentally, Socially and Economically. We will deliver value for money on in terms of generating benefits to society and the economy, whilst minimising damage to the environment.
