Clatterbridge Hospital - Steve Day

I write to provide testimonial to Read Construction with respect to the recently completed new build extension and remodelling of the Springview building at Clatterbridge Hospital on the Wirral.  I was the Project Architect (for Nightingale Associates) for the scheme, working closely with the contractor to deliver a successful project under very tight budget and timescale constraints.  Read Construction played a significant part in the successful delivery of the project which was completed both within budget and on time.  Their approach to the logisitics of achieving this was very commendable, working alongside the design team and client, bringing their expertise to the table when it mattered to overcome issues on site to maintain progress.  They were very much part of 'The Team' in delivering a successful project.

The Read Construction mentality and approach to delivering a successful project is apparent throughout the hierarchal structure, not least with the site operatives.  Steve Day (Site Manager) was excellent in co-ordinating his staff on site and was always aware of potential issues, highlighting them well in advance and playing an active role in resolving them to the benefit of the project.  Steve worked very well with the Design Team and helped out whenever/however he could, assuming a responsibility to ensure the project was completed successfully.

I have worked with Read Construction on another project and whilst not the same Site Team was involved, their approach remained the same, playing a significant part in the successful delivery of the project, again both within budget and on time.

My experience with Read Construction over the last two years has proven their competence at all levels to deliver a successful project and has set the benchmark for future involvement with contractors.
