Deep Drainage Excavation Course

We are thrilled to have been granted accreditation for our Deep Drainage Excavation 5-Day Training Course.

The EQA commented on the quality and content of our training package, stating it was flawless, and was more than happy the award it with ‘The One Awards Quality Mark’ which is NOCN’s formal certificated endorsement of the quality of training offered by an Employer.

Congratulations to our Training & IT Department for this huge achievement, especially given the short period of time. This is testament to the hard work put in by the team. We’d also like to give credit, and a big well done, to our Apprentice Training Co-ordinator for putting the whole submission together!


Winning ways!

We are pleased to announce that our A46 Anstey Lane scheme won the Most Considerate Site Award 2021 for national contracts with a value of £7.5m to > £10m. Working for our client, Galliford Try, this project carried out a number of road improvements to the A46 and the A5630. CR Civil Engineering played a huge part in the successful construction of the Anstey Lane Widening scheme.

Congratulations to all of the team involved in this project on this award.


Highway Improvements & Upgrades

The M1 Junction 23 scheme, working on behalf of Morgan Sindall, involves improvements to Junction 23; upgrading the single carriageway to a dual carriageway between Junction 23 and Snells Nook Lane in Loughborough and improvements to three junctions along the A512 near Shepshed.

As the lockdown restrictions begin to ease, and the days are longer and brighter, the park receives many visitors throughout the day which can ultimately lead to poor housekeeping. In April, a team from CR Civil Engineering and a team from Morgan Sindall visited Oakley Road Playing Fields, home to a play area, skateboard park and BMX track, to participate in a litter picking initiative as a way to give back to the local community.

Biran Gaye, Senior Quantity Surveyor for the scheme, who participated in the CSR initiative, added:

“I felt pleased to be part of a team that willingly contributes to a litter free park. If institutions genuinely wish to understand the aspirations, concerns and values of the community, then they should engage in, provide for and participate in them; and that is exactly what CR Civil Engineering did.”



Health & Safety at the forefront

We are delighted to have achieved CHAS accreditation for another consecutive year. CHAS (The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) proves that CR Civil Engineering’s health and safety processes and procedures meet excellent standards. Achieving this accreditation is a reflection on how we prioritise and ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all our employees.
