I Slept Easy At Night Assured Our Groundworks Provider Was On-Target And All Prepared For The Next Day

A Reassuring First Day Led To A Seamless Project, On Budget, With A Delighted Client

Mick Cross, Contracts Manager of Ideal Building Systems does not lavish praise, nor recommend easily.

“Like anyone else in modular builds, the first day with a new groundworks provider is one fraught with worry, often where you have to take the contractor aside for a word. With Damian and his team at Shanco it was different from the very start.”

Mick had engaged Shanco for the first time for a new modular classroom at Scissett Middle School, Wakefield in mid July 2014.

“They all arrived, uniformed up, following health and safety guidelines and inductions perfectly. I was immediately assured and that set the tone for the rest of the project.”


“Modular Building by it’s very nature demands speed. So if you can forgive the pun, your groundworks provider needs to hit the ground running. You know usually within the first 2-3 days if things will go well. In Shanco’s case I knew instantly because they made a fantastic first impression.”

I Would Certainly Use Shanco Again

“In any project, there are times when you need a boost, and Shanco delivered, deploying extra resources in force when it was needed.”

Profit Was Secured

“The communication between Damian and myself was superb. He was able to anticipate and communicate potential variances or challenges before it happened so we had plenty of time to get approvals swiftly, all within the confines of the contract. That helped deliver margins and profit for us both while keeping the client happy and within agreed budgets.”

Damian at Shanco On Mick of Ideal

Ideal demand the same high standards we believe in and because communication was tight between Mick and myself throughout the project, it was a smooth experience for us both.

It was clear that Mick was vastly experienced and as insistent on a safe site as we are. We were immediately on the same wavelength and were able to communicate at the end of each day to communicate progress and our plans and resourcing for the day ahead.

Mick and Ideal are quality operators delivering a fantastic product and making sure their client gets exactly what they want. He cares deeply about completion on time with no compromise on quality.
