  • A Trip Down Memory Lane: Low Street, Collingham

    We were contacted by a previous client recently with some photos of a job that was completed around approximately 1981/1982 in Low Street, Collingham.

    John Coen and team were felling trees, next to All Saint’s Church Collingham,  that were infected with Dutch Elm Disease. During the removal process, John found that the trees were rotten the entire way through. The work took a day to complete.

    These incredible photos will take you down memory lane and show how far C F Construction (Collingham) Ltd has come as a business over the past 40 years. We are proud to say that our hardworking and quality work ethos has not changed.

  • Welcoming Jamie!

    November marked a change in our workforce in the form of taking on a female groundworker. We have wanted to do this for quite some time but have struggled to encourage applicants to join. When considering a female grounds worker, we had to make sure we were able to provide separate and equal welfare facilities. Once we knew this was achievable, we decided it was the right time for growth and change.

    Jamie will be our first female groundworker in what is an extremely male-dominated industry. There are few other industries in the UK where the gender gap is quite as noticeable as it is in construction and “despite comprising over 50% of the UK population, women still make up only 11% of the construction workforce; this number drops to just 1% of operatives on site.”*

    As a small family-run civil engineering and highways contractor we recognised this as a potential growth opportunity enabling us to inspire the workforce of tomorrow and address the industry skills gulf. We are committed to getting more women into construction and want new ideas/theories/concepts to keep CF construction relevant.

    This is Jamie’s first role in the construction industry so together we are hoping to break new ground in 2021
