Our diverse portfolio of work allows us to develop a great understanding of the needs of different communities. So whether we are regenerating forgotten parts of a city or building new social infrastructure, on every project and programme we aim to provide opportunities that enable local people to thrive.
We consider it our responsibility to ensure that the lasting legacies we build add value to communities, both socially and financially in the following ways:
We offer apprenticeships and work placements on projects and programmes that aim to inspire and engage communities and offer local people future employment and skilled development opportunities.
A key element of our responsible procurement commitment is to ensure we positively support local businesses.
We have had a structured approach to how we work with our stakeholders and communities.
We approach community engagement in a considered and inclusive way, ensuring that any potential disturbance caused by construction is mitigated and that we generate positive opportunities for those affected.
Our community engagement activities allow our people to share knowledge, materials, resources, time and our world class expertise with community groups, promoting a culture of communication and transparency. Such dialogue is key to keeping relationships strong with local people, helping to ensure the legacy we leave is a positive one.
We are proud to be an Associate Member of the Considerate Constructors Scheme – which enables us to learn from industry peers and allows us to help shape industry best practice.
