Sporn Construction Ltd Awarded the Title of Small Business of the Yearsponsored by HEART FM.  The Directors and the management team were at the awards dinner and were delighted to have won the award. Robin Sporn, Director, commented “The award is recognition within the business community of the professionalism of all members of our team. The company has expanded significantly over the last 5 years, in spite of the difficult economic times. The company has a clear plan to which every member of staff contributes to. Our focus is always to deliver outstanding quality and impeccable customer service. We are not just concerned about the finished project but how we get to that point.  We operate contract management systems and procedures normally found in much larger construction companies however our personal approach gives us the ability to provide a bespoke service that larger construction companies cannot offer. Our aim is to make the journey enjoyable one.

 

Members of the Sporn Construction management team were also at the awards dinner. Mike Pearse, Site Manager, said “At Sporn Construction we are very much a team and it was fantastic to join the Directors at the awards dinner to celebrate the company’s achievement. The awards dinner was far more prestigious than I had imagined and really made us aware of just how important the Oxfordshire Business Awards truly are. What is wonderful at Sporn Construction is that we all feel a sense of ownership within the company, this is reinforced by the Directors. This award will be appreciated by every member of staff not just as employees but on a personal level too.”

A HSE inspector made a drive by visit to one our sites this week. The inspector commented that the clear implementation of Health and Safety Regulations was of a very high standard. He went on to report the site was very organised and tidy and further that all members of staff on site had the relevant PPE and safe working conditions. The inspector summarised his report by saying such standards are rarely achieved by construction companies the size of Sporn Construction Ltd.
