Ground Investigation Works at Birthplace of Market Cross

This month Market Cross were tasked to carry out some ground investigation and health phyiscs work on a site suitable for development. This time, however, the work brought about a tinge of nostalia. This was because the work was undertaken on the very site where Market Cross was conceived and incorporated, Winfrith Technology Centre.

Market Cross Donates to the British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal

Today we are proud to announce that we have made a significant donation to the British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal. This money will be used to distribute food and basic aid items and provide medical and psychosocial support for people arriving in Ukraine’s neighbouring countries such as Poland, Moldova, Slovakia and Romania.

Our usual remit is to donate to scientific and educational based charities in the local area but this year the heartbreaking and desperate situation in Ukraine together with the heroic actions of its population have inspired our members to make an exception. In fact, we have donated 15% of our entire annual profit for the financial year 2020/2021 to the British Red Cross.

We very much stand with the people of Ukraine.

Market Cross helps achieve a Safety Milestone in the Dreadnought Programme

Dreadnought ProgrammeMarket Cross has helped reach a significant construction and radiation protection milestone for a series of Critical Examinations at BAE, Barrow-in-Furness.

RPA support, including radiography dry-runs, critical examination planning, radiation risk assessment and radiation protection training were provided for BAE, the facility contruction company and the critical examiner.

The conclusion of the Critical Examinations was a significant step forward in the programme and one that means-tested the examination process, the facility design and the bulk shielding.
