A truly collaborative approach to construction has been demonstrated by Mulalley and Company Ltd’s multi-award winning Haringey Major Works Ultra Site project.
Mulalley’s flagship project was completed in December 2016, fulfilling a two-year contract with the London Borough of Haringey to provide over 2000 decent homes for residents.
It also gained valuable experience as a company from Ultra Site participation and is keen to implement the new processes and initiatives learned from Haringey Major Works to its other sites.
Mulalley’s Associate Director for Sustainability, Peter Sharman said: “Mulalley are very pleased to have been involved at the start of the Ultra Site pilot and believe strongly in the importance of supply chain engagement and collaboration.
“This has been one of the primary areas of focus for us, from the very early pre-start supply chain workshop, all the way to our supply chain awards ceremony on the final day of the project.
“This exemplary commitment was recognised through an external Supply Chain Collaboration Award. We also sought to ensure that this Ultra Site project was our beacon of best construction practice within our company and were pleased that it received a Gold National Site Award in 2016.”
Peter added: “The delivery of a successful Ultra Site requires leadership and a holistic approach to ensure the highest standards are met and maintained across the whole supply chain.
