Our Sheffield office looked like an episode of the Great British Bake Off on the 28th September when the company took part in the world’s biggest coffee morning to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. The coffee morning was arranged by two of our Graduate Engineers and everyone got to show off their talents for baking (and nipping to M&S) whilst raising money for a great cause. Overall, a total of £750 was raised for the wonderful charity, with Eastwood’s matching the employee donations. We think that Paul and Prue would be proud!

Staff helped cook and prepare a fine spread of food and there were games and a bouncy castle to keep the children entertained (although seemingly enjoyed more by the adults!) . A lovely day was had by all, and nobody went home hungry!
We have been involved with the Middleborough Car Park in Colchester for over 32 years. It may qualify as our longest running project, having started as job no.5450, and now we are well into the 40,000’s!
The car park is a five-storey reinforced concrete structure built using the lift slab technique. That involves casting all of the floors at ground level, one above the other, jacking them up the full height precast concrete columns, then locking them into place with steel wedges.
