Andrew Wilson, Project Manager, Redrow Homes Limited

“I am now on my 2nd development working with CRS. The first site was Springfields in Highburton, Huddersfield which was 72 houses completed between August 2017 and December 2019. The ability of CRS to mobilise and fulfil our site execution plan and get the site off to a well-planned flying start was key to this development’s success.

This was the most successful development I have been involved with so far. The team were recognised twice with NHBC Pride in the Job Awards in 2018 and 2019, we also achieved a Highly Commended NHBC Health and Safety Award in 2018.

In 2019 the development was chosen to be the site for the Redrow Group ISO14001 accreditation inspection and passed with no action points given. The site received a Certificate of Excellence from the Considerate Constructors Scheme in 2019 and has recently been nominated for a national award in this scheme.

None of this is possible without a first class groundworker.

CRS are currently working with me on a dual outlet site in Leeds where an ambitious 30-week execution plan saw us install 3 phases of roads and sewers and a dual compound along with various house foundations on time and in challenging conditions. Again, a real credit to their on-site management and their focus on accommodating our programme needs. This project will ultimately deliver 290 units over the next 3 years.”

Nick Pennington, CRS

“Well its been a hell of a year for one reason or another, but its been made a hell of a lot easier because of the support you guys and everyone at CRS has given me, and I just want to say a massive thanks for your help.

It’s a pleasure to work for people like you who have the passion and pride that you do in your company, and I know that I made the right decision to come here.

I’m very grateful for the chance you gave me to work for you, and continue to enjoy being part of a big family.

Thanks for everything lads, and here’s to a great 2020.”

Martin Adamson, Director, Site 4 Investments

“CRS came to our aid when we had a particularly difficult situation to overcome. Over a three year period I came to know and rely upon the whole CRS team who constantly showed their professionalism, commitment and problem solving attitude to any situation. This was the attitude of all the senior management, and cascaded down through all their employees who were always keen to go that extra mile.

CRS had the technical expertise to tackle any of the the complicated groundworks required on the site and produce a top quality result. They would come to me with solutions, improvements, better ways to do something and suggest any ways in which they could save money. They dealt with us as though they were a partner rather then a contractor and took complete ownership of their role within this development.

On behalf of Site 4 Investments I would like to thank all the CRS team for their commitment to seeing a job well done. Their whole company team approach, the quality of their communication and site safety gave constant reassurance to our team.

We look forward to working with them on the next project.”

Richard Cadman, Head of Construction, Redrow Homes Limited

“I have worked with CRS over the last 3 years and would have no hesitation to recommend them to any other new housing developer.

I have always had a good working relationship with their senior management team (Paul and Simon) along with the working foremen on site.

They consistently strive to achieve all deadlines given and work with the developer to resolve the inevitable issues that arise throughout the build.

The last site where they worked for me was Springfields (Kirkburton, Huddersfield) and they played a big part in both the NHBC Highly Commended Safety award and NHBC Pride in the Job award in 2018.

They also have a proactive approach to all aspects of Health, Safety and the Environment.”

Dion Sykes, Contracts Manager, Redrow Homes

“I’ve worked with CRS for a number of years on a variety of developments. I’ve always found CRS and the team professional and most importantly approachable and have built up a fantastic working relationship.

CRS have a very proactive approach when it comes to H&S and are always at the forefront of what they do without compromise. This goes hand in hand with the quality of workmanship CRS deliver time after time, there’s a real drive and sense of pride that transpires from the top all the way down the line.

CRS are a good solid groundworker who you can trust to deliver and not let you down.”

Jason Albrecht, Senior Contracts Manager, Berkeley Deveer

“At Berkeley Deveer we endeavour to deliver a quality product for our customers, CRS have been working alongside us for the past 3 years on various high spec developments helping us to achieve our goals.

Our site Kensington forest in Barnoldswick was a very technically challenging development and has recently been put forward for the Premier guarantee excellence awards which is a great achievement on such a complex development.

Health and safety is also key to a project’s success CRS in house safety advisors also ensure standards are maintained throughout the build through a proactive and sensible approach.

Berkeley Deveer and All the CRS team have formed a strong relationship through all levels during this period from the site staff through to their in house technical, and management team along with day to day input from the senior management team Simon and Paul. In this current climate it is essential that good team relationships are formed with a can do attitude, along with subcontracts all working as a team to help meet our end goals.”
