McCann will replace and maintain street lighting in London’s second largest borough, Hillingdon, after being awarded a £6.5 million contract.

Hillingdon Council has commissioned the civil and electrical engineering firm to upgrade approximately 23,000 lanterns to LED and maintain 25,000 assets over a five-year period. The Nottingham firm has recruited 10 additional members of staff and invested £0.5m in new equipment in order to deliver this.

“This is a hugely important project for Hillingdon, so we’ve ensured that we have recruited only the best people to join our experienced team,” says McCann contract manager, Steve Ellis. “As well as an electrician, data survey engineer, operations manager and customer service administrator, we’ve also employed an apprentice - 18-year-old Shawn McGill, giving him that all-important first step into a career in construction.”

Cllr Keith Burrows, Hillingdon Council's cabinet lead for transportation, commented: "Hillingdon is committed to ensuring that our streets are safe for motorists and pedestrians and our latest LED street lighting initiative will see improved visibility and lower running and energy costs. We're delighted to be working with McCann to deliver the very best for our residents and visitors to Hillingdon."

“This contract is excellent news and we couldn’t have wished for a better start to 2017,” adds MD John McCann. “This year marks our 50th year in business – a milestone we’ll be celebrating in various ways throughout the year - so to begin with such a substantial, constructive project as this is hugely rewarding for everyone involved.”
