“From working through a near unsolvable engineering problem with our Technical Services team, to de-mobbing the site in record time and giving us the programme confidence to complete the site before the Christmas break, Mabey Hire contributed all they could to the success of the project.”

Lee Long, Site Agent, Interserve

“The Mersey Gateway Project signifies a major step forward in the regeneration of the North West. Mabey Hire’s role in this project helped us overcome a number of challenges, such as determining access arrangements and the specific method we would use to install the pre-cast concrete beams and avoid over-stressing the temporary propping system.”

Jim Rice, Senior Operations Manager, Merseylink.
