NBS held a virtual seminar this week, ‘The Construction Leaders’ Summit: Building for the Future’ which made me think about where Corniche is, with all that we have had to deal with over the last 18 months. We have made changes within the company, said farewell to some colleagues and prepared for another challenging year.
To help us deal with the challenges 2021 will bring we are welcoming some new faces into the business; people who will equip us better to cover the range of work we have and future proof and enhance our site teams.
We are pleased to announce that Darren Whenham is joining us as Operations Manager, bringing with him a wealth of experience. Having started out as a bricklayer he worked his way up to become a National Contracts Manager for PRMF. We look forward to his contribution to our growth strategy in support of the business.
Those following Corniche on Facebook will have seen the mix of interesting projects we have continued to work on over the Winter and Spring. The full restoration that we have undertaken of Our Lady of the Assumption at Egham, is just reaching completion. Now we are busy with a three story residential development (the crane is now on site) and another demanding but rewarding project in the commercial sector; a substantial D&B fit out of a property in Borough Market.
As the third lock-down restrictions are lifted we expect to see more changes in the industry with anticipated material shortages and the global effects on prices caused by the pandemic. Factor into this the impact of the UK leaving the EU and the challenges keep coming. However we remain positive. Corniche will continue to stay agile, work hard and try to keep ahead of the game.
