Customer Feedback from the sector

  • Levi Chambers, Project Manager
    It is with much enthusiasm that I am writing to recommend the services of Shanco Contracts, further to the completion of our new care home project in Derby. Due to our long-standing relationship, we work with the Shanco site team as a partner and not a sub-contractor, and we have always been completely satisfied with the quality of their work; they deliver on programme and are a pleasure to work with. When challenges arise, they are met with a solution-focused, can-do attitude ensuring the project runs smoothly at all times. Well done to the Shanco team on another successful project.

    This is my second time working with Shanco. As this is a live prison, it’s taken a momentous effort to organise staff bookings and deliveries, and a good team effort has been achieved due to their positive attitude. Access/clearance has been a challenge, and the coordination of deliveries by Shanco has been fantastic. This has been such a crucial part of the running of the site, it has made my job far easier. 

    The relationship with security and the OSGs is also very crucial, Shanco has adhered to the policies and has also helped tremendously in this regard. Their QA and HSE procedures are well documented and have been complimented on by our relevant departments.

    We have faced many challenges together as a team, their proactive approach has been of great assistance, and the project is ahead of programme thanks to them. I would certainly recommend Shanco for any future projects in the MoJ department, or any other site projects.
