Social enterprise ethos
As our parent company is owned by Eric Wright Charitable Trust, a proportion of our profits go to charitable causes. We sponsor events and support local groups and charities by donating money, equipment and staff time. Last year our staff supported over 30 organisations.
Our projects maximise opportunities for local people, creating jobs, apprenticeship opportunities, training and work experience. We proactively introduce projects to suppliers and subcontractors, committing an agreed percentage of spend within the local economy to generate revenue and leave a sustainable legacy.
Our partnering approach means we work closely with our clients to understand their objectives for the building and its long term use. Our supply chain partners are involved at an early stage free of charge to the client to help identify innovation, alternative solutions and to offer buildability advice.
Sustainable design and construction are at the heart of our approach and we are working towards meeting the Government’s Industry Strategy: Construction 2025 vision. Our reduction in emissions is recognised by individual project awards and our company-wide Carbon Saver Gold accreditation.
We are working to BIM level 2 maturity and our BIM policy outlines our strategy for continual improvement in capability across the business through training and investment. We work with designers, clients and supply chains using collaborative BIM technology.
At the outset of each project, we allocate a proportion of funding for local community groups. We’ve helped sports, scouting and leisure clubs, groups who work with disabled people, nurseries, schools, charities, food banks and day centres.
Our people are highly skilled and committed to the construction sector with many contributing 20 years of experience, ensuring successful project delivery across all disciplines.
