Supporting Liverpool based charity, Thrive

We recently constructed a number of timber and perspex partitions and donated them to Liverpool based charity, Thrive, to help keep their team and visitors Covid-19 secure. The screens were provided to Thrive via the Construction Impact Framework (CIF).

Thrive is a careers hub in Liverpool city centre, dedicated to inspiring socially excluded young people about their futures so that they can live happy, safe and fulfilling lives. The hub has been created as a coffee shop environment inviting young people to find and secure meaningful employment.

John Turner Construction’s in-house joinery workshop, based at the company’s head office in Preston, provided the screens to enable the centre to operate in a safe environment.

Sara Lawton, CIF Director said ‘Thrive has been made possible through the University of Liverpool, Liverpool City Council and the City of Liverpool College choosing to procure via CIF. Their understanding of the authentic social value CIF brings has enabled us to develop and fund a unique project designed to inspire future generations, to live happy safe and fulfilling lives.’

John Turner Construction is a CIF supply partner and has successfully delivered several projects via the Construction Impact Framework.

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. “
