I’m sure there was a collective sigh of relief across the South West and beyond when the final go-ahead was given for the Hinkley C power station In September. This will be one of the largest infrastructure construction schemes in Europe and we are absolutely delighted to be playing our part (more news on this in our next newsletter). We’ve recently celebrated a landmark birthday at Clarkebond which gave us cause to think about other great projects and clients that we’ve worked with over the years. Our reputation as a high quality, responsible, reliable, and friendly consultancy has been key to our success and will continue to be at the heart of what we do in the future.
With very best wishes
