Children and staff at Scunthorpe’s Toybox Nursery have expressed their thanks to our site team working on the former Civic Centre Building for being considerate neighbours.
The team have just completed phase 1 of the transformation of the Grade II listed building into a new first class campus, as part of the University Campus North Lincolnshire (UCNL) scheme.
Toybox Nursery sits adjacent the site, and staff were worried that noise and dust from the building work would disrupt the children and the nursery.
Nursery owner and Managing Director, David Brown, said: “It’s a sensitive space and we were worried that building work for months on end next door would disturb the peace of the nursery. However, Britcon have been superb. We’ve forged an excellent relationship with them and they’ve kept the disruption to a minimum for us.”
In July, the nursery held a Rhyme Challenge, and our Site Team agreed to stop work for over an hour to allow the children to have their event. Jackie Brown, Toybox Co-owner and Director, added: “It meant so much to us and the children that Britcon agreed to stop work for us and our event. They didn’t have to do that for us and it just shows how neighbourly they’ve been to us throughout the project.”
In recognition of ceasing work during the Rhyme Challenge, children at Toybox Nursery made a thank you card and presented it to Site Manager Kenny Sewell and Senior Contracts Manager Andy Toyne.
