Our Civils team is currently on-site at the 'Kingsway to the Sea' project, led by main contractor, Morgan Sindall Construction. As part of Morgan Sindall Construction's Section 106 requirements, it is vital to prioritise engagement with local suppliers and workers. Underscoring the significance of our Sussex team's involvement and the careful selection of our workforce. The project overview includes several sections, such as the Sports Hub, Padel Tennis, Tennis Pavilion building, Skate Park, Pump Track, and landscaped gardens. Currently, the Shore Civils team is concentrating on various groundworks throughout the project.

Meet Chris, the new addition to our Civils team. Chris had signed up with Fedcap, a not-for-profit organisation that supports people back into employment. The Shore Group have worked with Fedcap previously, as part of our ethical recruitment strategy and took this opportunity to contact Chris regarding our vacancy on-site. His journey with us began in December, and since then, he's become a crucial part of our workforce.
From Brighton, Chris has a background in residential work but has always wanted something more substantial. Joining forces with Shore Group Civils was a turning point for him, as it has opened doors to larger projects and exciting opportunities. Working and training as a Traffic Marshall, Groundworker, and Labourer, Chris isn't afraid to roll up his sleeves and dive into any task, no matter how challenging. Chris has also completed his CLOCS training (Site Access Traffic Marshall) provided by Morgan Sindall Construction. 
One of the standout parts of Chris's time with Shore Civils is the unwavering support he's received from the team. From day one, he's felt welcomed by his colleagues, who have been essential in helping him understand the job. Their positivity and teamwork have made every day on-site a rewarding experience for Chris.

However, moving from residential work to a big seaside project came with its challenges. Chris humorously remembers his initial adjustment to Brighton's rainy winters, quite different from his previous jobs. Yet, he adapted quickly, learning the importance of dressing appropriately for the weather.
Despite the challenges, Chris thrives in his role, especially during the busiest days. With lots of deliveries coming in and the constant hustle to ensure site safety and tidiness, Chris remains focused, making sure every task is done well and quickly.

Chris's dedication is fuelled by the knowledge that he's making a significant contribution. Being a Brighton resident, he understands the positive impact projects like ‘Kingsway to the Sea’ can have on the community. Chris finds pride in knowing that he's actively shaping the future of his city and eagerly anticipates being one of the many who will benefit from the completed project. 
"Chris has truly enhanced our team with his community-minded approach to the ‘Kingsway to the Sea’ project. We're eager to continue collaborating with him on upcoming endeavours and ideally welcome him as a permanent team member. His proactive attitude towards self-improvement speaks volumes about his character, enabling him to effectively contribute across different aspects of the project." Rob Green, Commercial Director
