Latest News- New Project GMFRS- Bury

SR Waite Group

We are delighted to have secured and commenced the full electrical installation contract at Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service’s (GMFRS) multi-million pound development in Wellington Street, Bury.

The new centre will allow fire-fighters to train for every possible incident, including: transport incidents such as tram and train derailments and road collisions; water rescues; incidents involving hazard materials; search and rescue; collapsed buildings; and high-rise building fires.

A large warehouse will be transformed into a community hub, featuring an interactive area for people to visit and learn about fire safety.

Chairman of Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Authority, councillor David Acton, said: “It’s taken us years to get to where we are today – from the idea of having a world-class training facility in Bury to the cutting of the first sod.

“The exciting development will allow firefighters from Greater Manchester – and potentially beyond – to train in the most modern and realistic conditions.

“This will help us to ensure that as we continue to reduce the number of fires and incidents we attend through our successful prevention work, we support our firefighters and officers to maintain their skills and experience of dealing with real fires.

“The centre will also provide a fantastic facility for the community where young people inparticular can learn how to protect themselves from fire and other dangers in an exciting and memorable way while gaining an insight into the varied work of GMFRS.”

Commenting on this news Group Managing Director Andy Mazey said:

“We are delighted to have been successful with our bid and appointed as electrical contractor on this project. We recognise its importance and value to the community of Bury and indeed the Greater Manchester region. We look forward to delivering yet another prestigious contract on time and within budget”.

S R Waite group extend community club support in association with William James Recruitment.

As the National Conference League Division Two season got under way on Saturday 12th March 2016, Leigh East first team carried out its pre game warm up in new warm up shirts sporting the William James Recruitment and S R Waite Group logos.

Speaking on behalf of the Group Board Andy Mazey said:

“We are proud as a business to support many sports and education based organisations and projects, not only in the town we operate from but right across the north west region. To be associated with people who are passionate about the development of young people in general gives us great satisfaction. We are always happy to support Leigh East and are already proud to have our corporate branding on all the 2016 open age polo shirts so its great in addition to see the logo on such a great looking warm up top.

Having known Paul for a long time its a pleasure to be associated with him and his fellow coaches at the club and of course a fantastic group of players and people.  In my opinion Paul has transformed the culture at open age level during his tenure and its worth noting the extremely low average age of his team selection on Saturday, as well as the fact that fifteen of the eighteen players on duty have come through the ranks at the club. These statistics combined with the overall numbers he and his coaching team have attracted across first, second and masters levels bare testament to that.

On behalf of S R Waite Id like to thank Paul for this opportunity to further extend our support and we wish the team all the best for the season ahead.”

ESOS (Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme) : A marathon not a sprint.

An ESOS audit provides a valuable dossier with which companies can weed out inefficiencies and reap all kinds of benefits.

Companies must think of these findings as a valuable dossier that will help them achieve market competitiveness, business longevity and, of course, those all-important bottom line savings.

The Carbon Trust reports that large businesses have the ability to save 15% on energy bills through increased efficiency and it is ‘not uncommon’ to see this figure rise by up to 25%.

Taking no action after an audit seems like a wasted opportunity.

The SRW Group’s growth has been achieved by consistently developing, efficient, sustainable lighting and electrical installations solutions that are specifically designed by our in house engineers to produce an outcome for clients and which are not driven by manufacturers, suppliers or ‘’ the latest trends’’.

The recent successful investment and expansion of the SRW Group has allowed us to further invest in providing the resource to offer impartial advice and guidance for companies executing an ESOS action plan.

Contact us and turn your ESOS audit into an opportunity for your business TODAY.
