Steel signing ceremony at West Suffolk Operational Hub

The completion of an important phase in the construction of the new West Suffolk Operational Hub has been celebrated with a special steel signing ceremony.

The event was held last Friday at the site at Hollow Road Farm in Fornham St Martin to mark the completion of the £23million building’s steel frame.

The project, which is being developed to meet the changing needs for waste management in West Suffolk, is a joint partnership between Suffolk County Council, Forest Heath District Council and St Edmundsbury Borough Council.

Representatives from the councils joined members of the Morgan Sindall Construction project team to sign a steel plaque which will be fixed to a beam within the building.

In a joint statement, Cllr David Bowman and Cllr Peter Stevens, cabinet members for operations for Forest Heath and St Edmundsbury respectively, said: “Good progress is being made on site by a strong team whose commitment to making this a platinum standard project deserves to be marked. Everyone who signs the plaque will have the satisfaction of knowing this project bears their name.”
