While Kempowell has extensive experience in completing electrical engineering contracts in the retail, leisure, commercial and industrial sectors of the construction industry, it is in the world of healthcare that the company counts among its flagship achievements.
For example, Blackadder actor and Time Team presenter Sir Tony Robinson was at the specialist neurological centre in Bretton, Peterborough, for its official opening, where he unveiled a commemorative plaque at the PJ Care-owned Eagle Wood to mark the occasion.
Praising the £12 million centre, its staff and facilities, he said: “I’m really proud to be here, and I just wish Eagle Wood was replicated in every other town and city across the country.It’s important to celebrate best practice, and Eagle Wood is just the best practice you could possibly have”.
