Wiggenhall St Germans Primary School
Presented to: Justin Dean & George Williams
Contractor: R G Carter Limited
Client: Norfolk County Council

This project, near Kings Lynn in Norfolk, involved the total refurbishment of a small village primary school plus the building of a new extension.

The work needed to continue throughout the school term, but the site team turned this from a potentially negative experience into a most positive one. A letter received from the Chair of the School Governors encapsulates the team’s performance by saying: "We are in debt to RG Carter for both minimising any disruption and for making a very positive contribution to village life. They have been approachable with any concerns and kept the village informed of progress, helping to relieve those apprehensive about the work. In addition, the site manager and team have enthusiastically involved themselves in both school and village activities with a poster competition, crane rides, a trophy for sports day, and manpower whenever anything needed moving. They have also helped with several village maintenance projects and instigated a free Hire-a-Handyman service for older residents. We can now look forward to moving back into our much loved school".

These sentiments were endorsed by the Scheme Monitor, who described the performance as: "Showing total commitment from both management and operatives to the Scheme’s objectives".
