CambridgeHOK has revealed plans to continue building its business having added four new members to its team and secured a new ‘major glasshouse order’ since the country went into lockdown in March.
The company has some new additions to the team, with Jason Tether starting as a project manager in the Operations Team, David Brunsden joining as a Site Manager in Construction, Mark Cumbor a CAD Engineer strengthening the Design Team and a further Mechanical Engineer due to start shortly.
They have each hit the ground running as work has started on three new projects, including a contract for a "major UK glasshouse build" which was agreed in April.
Work has also started at on project building a new controlled environment facility for a client, and at a multi-million pound glasshouse and cold store facility development for Beeswax Dyson Farming in Lincolnshire.
Now, the firm is looking to add further skilled professionals to its team. “I’m delighted to say that we’ve maintained our momentum through the lockdown – and even strengthened our team and order book in that time,” said Mr Bradley, construction director.
“That has put us in a strong position now that the green light has been given to the construction industry to carefully return more people back to sites across the country. As has already been reported, we have been on site at Beeswax throughout April and our latest two projects both needed speedy starts due to timescales and required completion date targets."
Earlier this month, Mr Bradley revealed how the firm had been able to start ground works for a new multi-million pound strawberry production facility for Beeswax Dyson Farming in Lincolnshire during the lockdown, closely following Government and Construction Leadership Council guidance.
“We are extremely busy and working on some of the biggest projects in our history at present and with those in mind, and with other significant projects already in our order book we are now actively looking to add further members to our team.”
