On-site teams with MFS

On each and every project, MFS provides an experienced on-site team. It includes personnel with the appropriate skill sets to complement the project and deliver the thin joint block system to achieve the desired programme. A dedicated working supervisor then manages each team.

Experienced on-site teams are key

MFS retains a number of experienced thin joint block work installers and carpenters, as well as bricklayers, labourers, material handler drivers and other associated tradesmen. All have worked for us for a number of years and are well versed in our system approach. Specialist subcontractors are employed to erect and maintain scaffolding, manufacture and install structural steelwork, and to design, manufacture and install all re-cast concrete floor systems.

All our labourers and supervisors are CSCS/plant operator qualified.

As part of our business philosophy, we recognise and acknowledge the importance of our supply chain and the contribution our on-site erection teams make to the delivery of each project and the long-term success of our business.
