Project name: Gobowen Hospital Helipad

Contract: JCT Minor Works

Value: £275,000

Duration: 16 weeks


The first project delivered through the HELP (Helicopter Emergency Landing Pads) Appeal, this small works project enabled an enhanced service to be operated from the existing hospital through the provision of a new landing pad and covered smooth walkway to the hospital entrance.

QUALITY – With the client site housing the Midlands Centre for Spinal Injuries, the provision of a well-lit, covered smooth access to ensure a smooth transition from the helicopter to hospital was essential. Read’s management team, who engaged local supply chain members for the specialist work elements, oversaw quality control and ensuring delivery of all works within strict tolerances.

END USER FOCUS – The re-design of adjacent access road, car parking provision and footpaths was successfully undertaken whilst full access to the site was maintained for the ongoing provision of client services.

    We have found Read Construction to be very professional, helpful and courteous.  Their staff were proactive and thoroughly understanding whilst undertaking several projects in and around the Trust.  The quality of their workmanship was exceptional and their staff worked in an accommodating manner, which is a rare quality these days.

    Nothing was ever too much trouble for site manager Dawid Cloete and he had the ability to make difficult tasks appear easy.  These skills aren’t learned overnight and reflect the ownership displayed by Dawid to get the job done right, on time and to budget.

    Interaction and communication were second to none and I believe this is a direct reflection of your team’s character, honesty, dependability and your people skills.

    Read are thorough in their execution and actively work in partnership, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
