Toby Spearing Wins Willmott Dixon Quality Award


Toby Spearing of Sports Construction Specialists S&C Slatter has won a major quality award from Willmott Dixon Construction for his innovation and dedication to the new Edenbrook Leisure Centre scheme at Fleet, Hampshire.

Senior Building Manager at Willmott Dixon Construction, Alex Manning, made the announcement: “Congratulations to Toby Spearing of S&C Slatter who wins the quality award for September at Edenbrook Leisure Centre.

“With no Quality Delivery Checklist in place for artificial sports pitches he took time out to meet Jane Roper, Senior Quality Delivery Manager and myself to create one from scratch. With Toby’s input we have helped improve our quality system for the rest of the company.”

Spearing is Site Foreman for S&C Slatter on an important part of this major £23 million leisure development for which Willmott Dixon is main contractor.

S&C Slatter is building more than 10000 sq m of artificial pitches made up of a full size 3G football pitch and four 3G 5 a side pitches. These include rigid panel perimeter security and rebound fencing and floodlighting.

Furthermore, the firm is creating two natural turf mini-pitches with relevant fencing infrastructure.

Having worked as a member of the Slatter team for nine years, Spearing said: “I’m naturally delighted with the award and thank Willmott Dixon for recognising and appreciating my contribution. For me it was just doing my job to the best of my ability.”

David Slatter, Managing Director of S&C Slatter, added: “We’re all really pleased for Toby and very proud of him. The company is entirely focussed on teamwork and delivering quality and excellence for all our clients. Toby couldn’t have demonstrated this more clearly.”

S&C Slatter is an official Category A supply chain partner to Willmott Dixon Construction which confirms their ‘Preferred Supplier’ status and commitment to collaborative working during all stages of the construction process. Achieving continuous improvement in service performance and delivery is a particular goal of the relationship.
