Working Well Together

Keeping health and safety at the top of the agenda, managing director Ross Dickens has been appointed vice chair of Lancashire Working Well Together, an initiative to promote and encourage best practice throughout the industry.

Made up of representatives from construction companies across the county, and backed by the Health and Safety Executive, Lancashire Working Well Together meets regularly to share information to members through a series of seminars.

Keen to encourage more people to get involved, Ross said: “Anyone working in the construction industry is aware of the risks and responsibilities the job brings. Working Well Together’s free events help to raise awareness of the issues facing our industry and gives particiants practical advice on how to deal with risk. Whether you’re self employed or part of a bigger orgainsation, we all need to keep up-to-date with the latest legislation and practices. I’d encourage anyone who hasn’t been before to come along and see how they could benefit from the knowledge and experience of colleagues in the industry.”

The next event is a half-day session on November 14th at Park Hall Hotel in Charnock Rochard. Places are free but limited so booking is essential. To reserve your space contact Bernadette Barrett on 0151 4012 or email to specify morning (8am – 12noon) or afternoon (1pm – 5pm) session. No dress code, refreshments are provided.

Lancashire Working Well Together Information & Invitation

New website goes live

Our new website is now live. Take a look around the site to view our extensive portfolio of commercial, education, healthcare and residential projects, plus find out our latest news and updates.

Grub’s up for college project

Dinner will be served on time following the handover of a new kitchen and dining area for students at Blackpool and the Fylde College Bispham Campus. The £250,000 project was completed over five weeks during the summer holiday period to ensure minimal disruption to the college.

Clement Dickens stripped out the existing fixtures and fittings to enable the rewiring and plumbing of the new kitchen, service area and dining space.

Classy completion for St Annes home

Home improvements are on the up across the country as many homeowners who are looking for more space, are choosing to extend and remodel rather than move. Making the most of any spare patch of land or reworking the internal space are great ways of freshening up the look of a home and making room for a growing family without the upheaval of a move.

This beautiful St Annes home has been extended at the back with the addition of two bedrooms, and an en suite bathroom. The kitchen has been given a complete makeover and will be a fresh and bright space with the addition of a lantern light in the roof.

We’re pleased with a job well done as the house looks superb, and we were delighted with the result of the client satisfaction survey which gave us 10 out of 10 in three areas, including project management and high praise for the team’s attitude and courtesy on site.

When asked how happy they were with the overall service of the team, Mr & Mrs Ian Brown answered: “10 out of 10, deserved as overall, CDS performed far in excess of our expectations.”
