Working closely with the site team the project was handed over one month early, finished to a very high standard and achieved a “snag free” completion. The health and safety standards maintained on site were recognized by Vinci/IHP and the Client who regularly scored Sound Interiors as ‘excellent’. Both Vinci and the Hospital Trust also highlighted the collaboration between us and the M & E contractor as a major factor in achieving the very high standards of safety on site.
“Sound Interiors have yet again delivered work of the highest quality, on programme, with safety standards second to none at Wrightington Hospital Phase 1. The drive, determination and desire of the site management and site team during the construction phase to achieve such standards is nothing less than expected when you engage with Sound Interiors as they have delivered what they promised on this scheme. I can confidently say that they are extremely organised company and a pleasure to work with”.
