Innovation, collaboration with partners, and outstanding delivery of works are some of Glanville’s key principles. And despite changes seen over recent months within the company, including the relocation of depots, a new management structure, investment in innovative technology and a heavy focus on major infrastructure schemes, we remain focused on exceptional output of works to maintain the utility network in the South West.
Our large and highly skilled team of gangers and operatives work around the clock to ensure the utility network remains maintained; and we’ve recently seen through a wealth of reactive works and planned civils works including large projects such as Crantock, Coverack, and Crowndale Road in Tavistock, with a new civils project in Calstock now heavily under way.
With change comes improvements and across the board, we are heavily concentrated on minimising disruption to the company as change occurs, starting with a seamless transition to our new depot in Plympton with offices now in place and a brand new workshop complete to maintain our large fleet of vehicles; this will be the next step up for the future growth of Glanville. A new focus on staff retention, improved resources, and marketing will see the business diversify into new areas with forward thinking and an out-of-the-box approach allowing Glanville to expand to the next level and ensure the longevity of the work we do.
Investing in our people is a high priority at Glanville, with a focal point moving forward being onboarding apprentices, recruiting for our expanding team, and staff retention, through training development opportunities, company benefits, social events, and community engagement activities. Wellbeing and safety of each member of staff is crucial and that’s why we work closely with the Lighthouse Construction Charity to support staff wellbeing and to comply with our All-Safe campaign we ensure every employee receives basic first aid training, and all site staff are put through Health and Safety CSCS Construction training.
We are proud to have built our fully accredited training centre, Glanville Training Academy, located in Plympton. Using a hands-on and practical focused approach, we deliver high-quality and enhanced training courses bespoke to the construction industry with accreditations from SQA, CITB, Water Jetting Association, and NPORS. The centre offers courses for internal staff and external companies, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire about courses we offer.
There are many more changes to come, and we look forward to sharing our ever-growing development over the coming months.
