We see our corporate responsibilities as being an active and supportive partner working in close cooperation with our local communities. Our community aspiration is simple – to make a positive impact in the communities where we live and operate.
We work to minimise the disruption our operations can cause locally at a community level as well as promoting positive impacts in the environments we work in. This involves engaging with the local community at all stages of our projects and establishing a partnership to give us a clear understanding of their needs. We also support local causes where possible with resources and labour and have provided community clean ups and landscaping works for schools and hospitals.
Our dedication to giving back to the communities in which we live and work sees us supporting a new charity every year aligned to a cause that means something to us as a business. In the past we have supported amazing charities such as Chris's House and My Name'5 Doddie and this year are supporting Cancer Support Scotland and testicular awareness charity Cahonas Scotland.
BOOSTING THE LOCAL ECONOMY
We're committed to employing and developing a local skilled workforce. We also recognise the value of sourcing local materials and the role this has in reducing our carbon footprint so utilise local subcontractors and suppliers whenever possible.
SUPPORTING CAREER CHOICES
We believe strongly in helping young people make informed career choices and are passionate about showcasing the rewarding opportunities around civil engineering careers. We often work with local schools, colleges and universities to help give young people an insight into our industry.
We're proud to have worked on many important regeneration projects that have had a positive impact for communities across Scotland. Our award-winning project with Scottish Canals 'Glasgow's Smart Canal' has enabled the much needed development of over 3,000 homes in North Glasgow whilst our regeneration of Bowling Harbour has seen a new bustling hub for walkers, wheelists and cyclists to enjoy.
