"During my time at Northern Counties Safety Group it is evident that Addison Plant regard safety as being equally important as quality and production.
At the core of their safety culture is an active involvement from the directors and senior management, which recognises that people are Addison Plants greatest asset.
It is positive and encouraging to see that the motivation to continually improve their safety culture is helping drive down accidents in our industry, with this years figures being at an all time low.
Even in these tough times for construction, Addison Plant have implemented a successful health and safety management system that should be seen as a benchmark to other civil engineering organisations.
With the company’s continual improvement and commitment to safety, it is my belief that Addison Plant are on the right track."

PROJECT SUMMARY The new site will serve as Hitachi Rail’s facility for train manufacturing and assembly. It will be the base for the construction of the new Great Western Main Line and East Coast Main Line trains the company is building for the Government’s Intercity Express Programme (IEP), as well as the new AT200 trains for Abellio’s ScotRail franchise. We were one of the 1st sub-contractors on site to carry out enabling works which included diverting and culverting an existing water course with 600m of 450mm pipe with pre-cast headwalls at each end. We installed all of the drainage for the entrance road with attenuation and flow control. We had to protect all existing services under the new rail line and make provisions for future expansion. Part of this was to install a 600mm diameter steel tube 24m long for NWL. Part of the enabling works was to install a 12m long Klargester foul water pumping station and 600m of 110mm rising main. We also provided trenching and ducting for services on site including SSE, NPG, gas, water and BT.
