Apprentices on Site
In April, two of our office based apprentices visited our M1 J23 scheme to experience the core construction works of the business. This enabled the apprentices to have a better understanding of site environments, learning more about what is involved in civil engineering and ultimately, how their office work contributes to the work on site.
Our Apprentice Administrator added “it was a very interesting morning seeing the work happens on site and how this links into my work.”
Our Apprentice Training Co-ordinator also added “it was a brilliant induction on site and to be able to see the physical work that goes on in the Company.”
GPS controlled Excavators & Dozers
At M1 J23 and A512 Improvements scheme, Morgan Sindall introduced the use of GPS control excavators and dozers to CR Civil Engineering. The benefit of using this device is that it helps to reduce working hours with a ‘right first time’ approach. It also allows for increased efficiency and reduction in resource and material waste. Finally, it allows high precision and more complex work to be completed.
As a result, to embrace use of the technology Morgan Sindall provided training with a designated Engineer, to ensure that perfect delivery of the new technology was achieved. This provided our employees with the opportunity to be up-skilled, resulting in an improvement in our performance and resulting in a huge benefit of productivity for the project.
After the training, we took maximum advantage of this new method of working and experienced a great response from our workforce by using the GPS system. We have now begun to use this device on all of our operational sites. This is a fantastic example of our client investing in their supply chain by providing training to upskill ourselves on new technologies which we can now implement onto future projects.
