We work to minimise the disruption our operations can cause locally at community level as well as promoting positive impacts in the environments we work in, including:
Engaging with the local community and establishing a partnership to give us a clear understanding of their needs
Providing support to selected local causes and charities
Communication and engagement including contacting local schools affected by our works
Encouraging our employees to get involved and make a positive contribution to the community
Recognising the value of employing locally sourced labour, materials and goods by utilising local sub-contractors and suppliers within our supply chain whenever possible
We consider our role in local communities to be an integral part of the business and we are proud of the places we both live and work in. It has never been more important for us to do all we can to support the communities we serve.
Employment: Employing and developing a local skilled workforce.
Community benefits: Commitment to delivering a diverse range of benefits to local communities wherever there are clear opportunities.
Added value: Encouraging new ideas on how we can best achieve the maximum benefits through our pledge and be willing to provide professional advice to those we work with.
We prefer to self-deliver our projects; the benefit of having the ability to self-deliver the key elements of projects is the reason for success and sustainability of our community benefit model.
Equally important is how our many construction sites respond to the communities they interact with. We are committed to ensuring local residents, who may be affected by our work, are always aware of our site activity and that any inconvenience is minimised. We communicate with local people through a variety of methods including newsletters, letter drops, notice boards, personal visits, our website, local press, and when appropriate, special open days.
Safety is our number one priority and our exacting health and safety standards have been accredited to the highest level
We have a steadfast belief in achieving the highest level of quality and delivering best practice through our products and services
We are fully committed to provide a more efficient and progressive service through driving and embracing innovative technologies
We have a clear focus on working to improve our local community and finding ways to add further value to our clients and partners
