Take a Look Behind the Hoardings as John Sisk & Son Open the Doors at the Project Dove Site, Tutbury, Nestlé’s Largest Construction Project

As part of the “Open Doors” weekend taking place on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th September, the John Sisk & Son site team is taking the opportunity to give the community an unparalleled view of the construction works at Nestlé’s Manufacturing Plant in Tutbury.
The team will host a number of 90 minute sessions over the two day event, where visitors will receive a tour of the site and gain a unique insight into the complexities involved in delivering this landmark development which will centralise Nestlé’s coffee production within the UK.
Our site team representatives will also be on hand to discuss their own experiences and offer advice and guidance for those considering a career in construction. Ian Donaldson, John Sisk & Son, Project Director at the Tutbury site said “Along with our site activities we are working collaboratively with Nestlé to bring a positive experience to Tutbury and the surrounding community. We really hope that as many people as possible take this unique opportunity to engage with the onsite team and develop an understanding of the project and the construction process as a whole.”

Open Doors is an industry initiative to show the diverse and exciting range of projects being delivered by the construction industry. It is the result of a partnership of four industry bodies including UK Construction Group (UKCG), CITB-ConstructionSkills, The Considerate Constructors Scheme and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).
Speaking on behalf of the Open Doors Partnership, Stephen Ratcliffe, Director, UK Contractors Group said: “Open Doors’ is a unique opportunity for the industry collectively to display the complexity and scope of modern construction projects and give people a taste of what it’s really like to work in the industry today. It’s an exciting initiative which we hope will encourage more people to consider construction as a prospective career with good opportunities.
“The scheme will also allow the industry to engage with local communities and strengthen relationships at a local level.  What the public will see is a skilled, sophisticated and progressive industry – the Open Doors weekend is certain to challenge perceptions.”
