Class 6c and Sully, the therapy dog, visit site

Pupils from Ladywood School in Bolton, accompanied by their teacher and the delightful 2-year-old therapy dog, Sully, paid a special visit to site to check on the progress of our building works.

Ladywood School is an Outstanding Special School and Sully, a Labrador with expertise in Freud Psychodynamic Theory, is one of two therapy dogs offering support at the school.

John Turner Construction is in the process of constructing a transformative two-storey extension for Ladywood School. The extension will feature 13 state-of-the-art classrooms, new administration offices and a staff room, with a link corridor to the existing school building and comprehensive refurbishment works, all aimed at enhancing the environment for the students. The project was commissioned by The Woodbridge Trust.

Our client’s responses

” John Turner has won a number of tenders at Edge Hill University and has been consistently successful in completing high quality projects, on programme and on budget. “

” I would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to your entire team who were responsible for delivering such a successful project. We would especially like to recognise the dedication and commitment your team gave the project which was completed with minimal disruption to our hospital functions. ”

” The project has been a real success and this is due to the professional and well organised manner in which John Turner’s staff conducted themselves. There was excellent communication with a priority for safeguarding the pupils and staff at all times. “

” It is extremely refreshing to know that the enthusiasm, professionalism, dedication and humour is still available in the right proportions to make things happen in the construction industry. What is most pleasing is that at all times, the requirements of the Client and Church of England Pensions Boards as the end-user was paramount. Collectively, we have achieved completion on time, a building within budget and in some areas exceeded the client’s expectations. “

” Just a line to express my thanks and appreciation of your sterling efforts to secure the completion of this project within the agreed programme. I am impressed by both the attitude and approach of your organisation. Thanks once again on behalf of my colleagues and the clinical staff with whom you developed a true spirit of co-operation under difficult circumstances. “
