Project name: Springfield School Sports Centre

Location: Cheshire

Contract: JCT Intermediate with Contractor Design

Value: £1,190,000

Duration: 30 Weeks


This project involved the construction of a new steel portal frame structure to house a sports hall on ground level with viewing galleries to the upper level.

AWARD WINNING – Read’s mature supply chain network, founded on mutual respect and fairness ensures that consistently high standards are met on all projects. Even specialist trades such as the swimming pool installation are selected on the basis of best overall value, which includes assessment of their sustainability, localism and shored ethos. .

LEAN CONSTRUCTION – By deploying the LEAN construction principles of “”Right First Time”” and sequential inspection, built in quality was delivered throughout the project. These principles, now embedded as standard operating procedures, resulted in the project being awarded LABC North West award for Quality delivery 2015.

RESPONSIVE – When a pool filtration design issue threatened the successful completion of the project to programme near the end of the project, Read demonstrated their responsive nature by mobilising plant and personnel to resolve the requirement for extended pool continuation tanks within 1 week of identification of the issue.

    We would like you to pass our sincere thanks to Greg and his team.  The project ran smoothly from start to finish.  We were kept informed throughout the build and Greg liaised very closely with us on the management of the project.  Any issues we had were quickly resolved.  As a special school the students’ sensitivities were considered and allowances made for them.  Greg attended our school council meetings and organised a ‘Time Capsule’ to be buried in the grounds of the new building which was a lovely, special event for the students.

    Since completion of the project we have, on occasion, needed information and guidance.  Whenever we have contacted Greg, the response had been swift and helpful – he really is an asset to your organisation.

    Based on this experience I would recommend Read Construction.
