North Star’s Civil Engineering division continues to expand with a number of new projects being awarded at the start of 2016. New contracts include a new build retail development in St. Helens, an extension and car parking facilities to a support centre in Morecambe, remodelling works to Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport and completion of a housing development in Cheshire.
North Star were selected and short-listed by Warden Construction Ltd to take part in their annual contractor awards in recognition of our continued professional approach in delivering Civil Engineering packages on a number of different projects ranging from schools and education campuses, new build industrial units, public amenity buildings and utility works. Wardens operate a scoring system which measures everything from tendering and pricing through to project performance and handover and North Star scored well in each category throughout the year and as a result were awarded a ‘Quality Performance Award’.
This award is a reflection on all the staff at North Star who work tirelessly hard to exceed our clients requirements.
North Star’s Utility Division assisted Electricity North West during some of the worst floods in history in Carlisle and Rochdale.
Recently Electricity North West (ENW) requested our services to help clear out a substation in Carlisle during Storm Desmond and North Star reacted and assisted to restore power to local residents as soon as humanly possible. North Star received a letter of thanks from the client following our efforts during this difficult time. Download Letter
On Boxing Day North Star were asked to attend floods in Rochdale and teams were deployed without hesitation giving up their time during the festive period to help dry out the substation to enable power to be restored in a timely manner so the people of Rochdale could enjoy the festivities. Just another example of North Stars commitment to the ‘cause’.
North Star Facilities Management Division has been appointed to carry out a large volume of Gas Safety Tests for a diverse property portfolio centred across the Mansfield and Nottingham areas. These works ensure that all boilers and gas appliances meet a safe and legal operating standard along with installing new smoke alarms and Co2 meters resulting in safer environments for the building occupants.
North Star will manage every aspect of these works including liaising with and scheduling in the works with the Client and dwelling occupiers to arrange convenient times that suit all parties as well as working to timelines.
