Being Better: Communities
We see further than the building element of our projects. We aim to create community value through the projects we deliver to our customers. This supports job creation and boosts the local economy. We work closely with stakeholders on our project to fully understand key issues in the community. Our team then put a programme of community objectives in place to tackle these.
Typically, this would include elements of the following: initiatives to get local unemployed people back into work; apprenticeships; training opportunities for young people; engagement with local education providers in the area; supporting local sports teams; partnering with the local job centre; ensuring the supply chain is from the local area; educating the community on the project via community drop in events, letter drops.
It is important that our employees play their part in our communities, and we give them time to give their skills to support our community initiatives. Our staff thrive being able to play their part in leaving a lasting legacy in the communities in which they work.
