Red Funnel has awarded a major contract to Isle of Wight based Stoneham Construction Ltd to complete phase one of the company’s East Cowes terminal redevelopment.
Work at the site of the former Trinity House maintenance depot involves levelling the area, adding suitable drainage, black topping the surface and adding lane markings. It is expected the project will be completed and the site commissioned for operational use by late July.
This contract was awarded to the Isle of Wight based company following a competitive tender and is part of Red Funnel’s policy of supporting Island businesses wherever possible.
Stoneham Construction Ltd is based in Havenstreet, Isle of Wight, from where they have been undertaking major projects on the Island and across the south of England since 1992. Stoneham has a strong emphasis on local labour and has an apprentice scheme to train the skilled craftsmen of the future.
