    Having run sites for over 30 years now, it has been great to work with a professional team, who are courteous, knowledgeable, well organised and above all, get the job done. The Site Supervisor was outstanding, I would have no hesitation in recommending Shanco.

    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.
