Project Description and Feedback Sir John Thursby College was one of three sites of the second phase of Lancashire County Council’s £250 million Building Schools for the Future programme. The new “super school” was created from merging 3 schools, including Rigdewood School for students with learning difficulties, serving1,050 students when complete. The contractor was impressed with Gripple hangers, as they aided the adherence to stringent time frames and hand-over schedules.

Phil Lovelady, Project Manager had used Gripple many times before on lighting, but was impressed with his first use of Gripple hangers on containment “Gripple hangers are far easier to work with than rod. At first, the cable-pulling team were dubious, but soon found the installation to be stable and secure. The lads and I were all impressed with the benefits of fitting Gripple and the time savings made on such a large project.” M&E Consultants:
