Helping a Wakefield primary school solve a last minute challenge.

The Challenge

Hendal Primary School were holding some large containers in their yard in Kettlethorpe, Wakefield.

When these needed to be moved, they approached us to allow a Hiab lorry onto the site.

To prepare for the move, we made sure that all of the necessary temporary roadways were in place to guarantee that there would be no access problems or delays due to poor ground conditions at the school.

The fence had also been cut open to allow the lorry access to the yard (and allow the now empty containers to be moved out easily). But when the Hiab supplier didn’t show up, this created a huge challenge for our customer, and they needed a different solution.

The Solution

Because we have experience working on a large number of projects similar to this one, we were more than happy to get in touch with one of our preferred suppliers to help our customer arrange a new crane.

We engaged the services of Rob at PP Engineering, who arrived at the site to meet our customer within 1.5 hours to discuss the project and find out exactly what needed to be done. They were then booked to move the containers later that week (with our team collecting the trackway the day after), allowing the job to go ahead with as little delay as possible.

“We chose to go with Trackway Solutions as they are a local company to our school and Maria Ferris (General Manager) was very helpful on the telephone.

A site visit was arranged for Maria to meet with me, where we discussed our needs and noted arrangements and the itinerary for the day of the job. Maria was very knowledgeable and gave excellent advice around traffic management and timescale of the work required.

On the day of the job, unfortunately we were let down at the last minute by the original Hiab company, but Maria was very understanding. She was already on site and stayed with us until we arranged a crane from a different supplier (PP Engineering). 

She certainly went the extra mile and made our life much easier.  I will definitely be recommending Trackway Solutions to anyone who requires their services.”
