A pioneering project to build new sports facilities for one of the UK’s first ‘green’ towns is being developed by a local leading company, Mildren Construction, and supported with equipment from plant hire specialist Selwood.
The development of Bordon and Oakhanger Sports Club Pavilion will be one of the key facilities in the new Whitehill & Bordon development in Hampshire.
Specialists from Selwood shared their expertise in health and safety and environmental issues at three events held by MWH Global.
As a supplier of pumps to MWH, a leading environmental services company, Selwood was invited to exhibit at three “Stand Down Days” held by the company.
Stand Down Days are common in industry as an opportunity for staff to down tools and focus on health and safety and related issues.
Plant specialists at Selwood are supporting rapidly-growing construction contractor Knights Brown as it works to update and strengthen its fleet.
Selwood’s plant sales teams, based in Chandlers Ford, Hampshire, have recently supplied Knights Brown with three 10-tonne Thwaites dumpers as part of an ongoing plant replacement programme.
Selwood’s Exeter plant hire specialists went to the rescue after a cry for help went up from volunteers at a dog rehabilitation and rehoming centre.
Devon Dog Behaviour Rehab and Rehome put out an appeal after its lawnmower, which was regularly used to maintain two large exercise areas, broke down. The mower was old and parts to repair it could no longer be found.
The plea was passed on to Selwood by Carolyn Inness of Paignton-based Aish Project Management, who is a supporter of the centre and helps to foster dogs.
Four years ago homes and businesses along the east coast of England were flooded in what was the most significant sea-surge generated flood in half a century.
Since then the Water Management Alliance (WMA) in East Anglia has been working with partners to provide a long-term, strategic solution.
A partnership between WMA and Selwood’s pump rental and sales specialists has helped to improve flood resilience in the region for years to come with the provision of cutting-edge pump equipment.
