The £5M turnover Essex firm is providing security for Skanska's roads and bridges scheme. "It took 20 minutes to sign up," says Chargecrest business development manager Dave Hatmil. "And you only need to do it once to be put forward for all suitable Olympic work Đ it's very time efficient." Chargecrest was matched with the Skanska job and was asked to tender. "We were really chuffed when we won," Hatmil says.
