Students Omar Miah and Ryan Waite visited the site as part of their summer internships for VGC. Omar commented: “Health and safety is emphasised a lot. Plant is used very carefully – there are strict guidelines and precautions that are put in place for safety reasons.”

This project followed other successful projects for client Balfour Beatty Living Places, including Bell Foundry Lane upgrade project.
