Stonbury named top NWL supplier

Stonbury are extremely proud to rank second on the Northumbrian Water Supplier Performance Measure (SPM) under the Framework Contractors category.  The latest SPM scores are a testament to our teams working in the North East and South, delivering projects with continuous effort and hard work to both Northumbrian Water and Essex and Suffolk Water over this last period. An improvement in the scoring matrix was achieved in all assessed categories including professionalism, quality and programme adherence. A significant improvement was also noted in the level of customer service, an area that Stonbury strives to be the best at for all our customers. Jon Featherstone, Director, comments "We have always recognised that great customer service is the foundation of any framework, and always dedicate a heavy focus to this area of delivery in all our internal team meetings. With the bar now set, our challenge is to become number one in the Framework Contractor category. We will be working extremely hard to continue high standards of service and further improvement all round!"

Floating Pontoons

When working over rivers and watercourses, we take advantage of our knowledge and experience as specialist contractors, especially when it comes to solutions for difficult access. During construction of a new break tank for a water company client, our teams utilised a floating pontoon system to complete works to a new pipework installation over a live river.
