British Gypsum training pays off for Galliford Try

Galliford Try is seeing quality improvements on site after sending staff on training courses run by British Gypsum.

The site manager courses offer insight and advice on the British Gypsum’s range of plasterboards, partitioning and ceiling systems.

Bill Greaves, Quality & Improvement Manager at Galliford Try said: “I was on the lookout for an effective way to raise the skill level amongst the team and it became obvious that this was the right course.

“In fact, I was so impressed with the standard of teaching on the course that I immediately decided to send the rest of my team on it.”

Greaves said team members at Galliford Try are now more aware of examples of good practice and in a better position to spot common mistakes on the dry lining fit out.

He said: “I was on-site recently with a bunch of staff who had attended the course. I was watching them from a distance and noticed one of the site managers challenge a contractor who was installing the wall boarding.

“The installer seemed happy that the work was satisfactory, but the site manager disagreed. It was fantastic to see him have the confidence to challenge the work.

“Ultimately, the White Book was consulted, and it was revealed the boarding had been incorrectly fixed and required replacing.

“Obviously, this was not ideal, but the Site Manager was simply doing his job and who knows how much money he may have saved us in the long-run.”
