Fords of Blythe Bridge has secured four major contract wins for construction projects worth in excess of £3m, in what looks set to be a record-breaking year for the company.
The Blythe Bridge based construction company, which specialises in new-build and refurbishment works within the education sector, has been awarded three new-build projects in Stone by Staffordshire County Council, as well as a major new build and refurbishment project in Nottingham.
Works have now started on the expansion of Alleynes Academy, Christchurch Academy, Walton Priory Middle School & The Windmill LEAD Academy to provide additional classroom space and teaching, dining, recreational and dining facilities to support increased pupils numbers at the schools.
Fords of Blythe Bridge is one of the main construction contractors for Staffordshire County Council, and over the last two years has received regional and national recognition for the quality of its design & build services.
The company has been twice named West Midlands regional winner & national finalist at the Local Authority Building Control awards for major construction works carried out at Merryfields Special School in Wolstanton and South Staffordshire College’s Rodbaston Campus.
Ray Croft, contracts director at Fords of Blythe Bridge said:
“We’re delighted to have secured these contract wins. It’s great news not just for our own workforce, but also for our local suppliers and subcontractors and local economy.
“We’re also really pleased to be able to play a part in helping to transform and improve the teaching and learning environment at all three school for current and future pupils for years to come.”
As a result of these recent contract wins and record levels of work, Fords of Blythe Bridge has employed three new apprentices and is recruiting additional qualified site joiners and apprentices to further grow its award-winning team.
