Principal Contracting work with Stent House Foundations

Posted: July 26, 2013 at 10:23 am

We have recently completed some work on behalf of Stent House Foundations for one of the UK’s biggest House builders, Morris Homes. PCL were awarded 2 jobs for Morris Homes, one in Oldbury and the other in Peterborough. Both involved the Stent House Foundation pre-cast foundation system of which PCL are approved installers.

We managed under very challenging conditions to complete both contracts before the scheduled program date and to budget, PCL again producing some top class Civil Engineering and we are hoping that the great working relationship between SHF and PCL will continue for many years to come.

PCL - Lafarge Tarmac Contract - Principal Contracting

Lafarge/Tarmac at Mountsorrel Quarry have recently sent plenty of work our way.

The work that has been set involves PCL going through the installation of various concrete paths and concrete hard stand areas. The UK’s leading construction materials and services company have also asked us to undertake 2 no road crossings which are now completed and had to be undertaken during the busy periods on site, PCL have also completed the installation of 300mm diameter ducts to carry the fuel lines. All the jobs set were tough but when the environment is cheerful and people around are happy to help it makes the job a heck of a lot easier and that’s exactly what all the staff at Mountsorrel were. I can honestly say in 4 years as a limited company we have never come across a group of people as helpful as the people at Mountsorrel, it was a pleasure to work for them. More work has been quoted so we all have our fingers crossed this will be ongoing.

We’re proud of what we do here at PCL and we love gettting great feedback from our customer. What’s even better is when we get a letter, letting us know how well we executed the job.
