I am writing with reference to the completed Spire Healthcare Scheme, in particular the scope of works carried out by Cidon Construction.
Cidon Construction were awarded the concrete frame and enabling works package for a £35m private healthcare scheme in Didsbury, Manchester.
I would like to congratulate Cidon Construction on the successful conclusion to their subcontract package works. Their overall performance and subsequent contribution to the project cannot be underestimated.
Their approach and management of the works is testament to their professionalism and proactive attitude to matters both Construction and Fiscal. The Health & Safety performance on what is a complex project can only be commended.
I look forward to the opportunity to work with Cidon Construction on future schemes.
I write to express our thanks for the works undertaken by Cidon Construction here at Student Castle Walmgate. The concrete frame works have progressed and been completed in a manner that is worthy of praise. The works were completed ahead of time and Cidon were instrumental in making this possible. This was achieved by assisting and providing services to overcome issues with the design and construction. The construction was managed pro-actively and safely, joined with a good working relationship formed between Cidon and Vinci site teams made this possible. The approach by Cidon has been welcomed by the team here at Vinci and we look forward to opportunities to work together in the future.

On all four projects, Cidon have performed to a very high level. The quality of the work produced is excellent. On the two basement contracts, their ability to manage the significant temporary works was commendable. The quality of staff and operatives provided is high which contributes significantly to the service provided. In terms of organisation on site and ability to provide and keep to a programme Cidon's performance has been very good. All four sub contracts have finished ahead or on programme. Commercially, Cidon Construction are fair and reasonable in all dealings. In respect to Health and Safety, I have no concerns over the way Cidon have conducted their business either directly on site or in the preparation of documentation. I would have no hesitation in recommending Cidon Construction to anyone considering to use them on concrete works.

I have had the opportunity of working with Cidon Construction on two projects, namely Cleveland EFW and Ferrybridge EFW. On each project, Cidon Construction have taken control of very challenging and complex operations, and delivered each successfully, whilst maintaining their control on HSE, quality and programme. Cidon Construction has a management and site staff of exceptional talent and experience that are adaptable and dependable, an asset to any project.

I am writing to wholeheartedly recommend Cidon Construction to perform high-quality concrete construction. The finish to the exposed walls, we worked alongside Cidon and Sir Robert McAlpine through an extensive mock-up process in which they provided invaluable input. Three Driven Voids, 6M diameter hollow concrete cylinders which extend 30M up through the building and tilt 12 degrees to provide structure, natural ventilation and light through the centre of the building. The steel shutters, along with the self-consolidating concrete they specified, along with their exceptional placement technique provided a concrete finish as smooth as silk. They used one floor-high outer cylindrical shutter, and two inside shutters to permit the sequencing to hop from one void to the next continuously. Each is carved out with rectangular openings oblique to the tube, created curved shapes which were blocked-out with CNC milled plywood. The openings have the crispest edges and profiles I have ever seen in concrete.

On behalf of myself, our site team and Tolent Construction we would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude for the rapid and efficient progress made during the erection of the concrete frame for the tower block at Eastern Boulevard Leicester, which has now been named "The Summit". We would all like you to pass on our thanks to the site team, who played such a pivotal role in driving the programme and additional technical and safety support provided throughout the scheme from the rest of your management team. Cidon’s programme turnaround, by improving the floor to floor cycles and the innovative introduction of the precast concrete columns gave us a great spring board to achieve success with our own works. We could not have wished for a better starting platform. It was also pleasing to note the final account settled to our mutual satisfaction so quickly and fairly.
