TWO PIONEERING WOMEN LEAD £90M HIGHWAYS FRAMEWORK
And we’re looking for talented people to join us on this journey!
Claire Coetzee and Suzie Mott, who head up the Framework Contracting division for family firm M J Church, have helped the company win a £90m deal which secures work for their 400 staff for the next six years.
The company has been selected by National Highways to deliver one of their most prestigious packages, working on highways projects across the A road and motorway network across the south of England – from Cornwall to Kent.
Pivotal to the bid that secured the work, and now heading up the framework, are Claire Coetzee, who is framework manager for MJ Church and Suzie Mott, who is commercial manager.
Group Managing Director of MJ Church Ben Staff said: “We are thrilled to be chosen as one of the civil engineering contractors to keep the UK’s main road infrastructure fit for purpose.
“We are proud to have been chosen to deliver this work over the next six years as this gives our committed workforce confidence in our future.”
The company, which started life in 1974 as a small plant and tipper hire business from its HQ in Marshfield near Bath, has grown to become a multi-million pound earthworks, civil engineering, plant & transport and waste management contractor. Its lorries and plant are a familiar site on construction and highways projects across the region. Founders Mike and Paula Church are still involved in the company and their son Tom is the plant and transport director.
M J Church has numerous sites including its head office at Marshfield, contracting division office in Chippenham, three waste transfer stations in Swindon, Malmesbury and Warmley as part of its waste division, and a separate operation at Wick Quarry in South Gloucestershire producing high quality natural and recycled aggregate. All these sites are supported by a significant plant and equipment fleet, all owned by the company.
Securing this contract means MJ Church are also looking for talented people to join their growing team in roles which include quantity surveying, project management, engineering to name a few.
The team are also looking for suppliers to support the business and the company’s growth over the coming years.
