Congratulations to our team at Wandsworth who have been awarded a Health and Safety Award by Galliford Try.  

The Wandsworth Riverside Quarter project is a 13 storey tower of apartments and commercial units. The monthly award is based on a variety of criteria including complexity of works, number of operatives and Serious Safety Event Rate. They also selected a stand out operative for their particular focus on H&S – and B&F electrician Elvis Shadrawry was the lucky recipient! We’re not sure if he celebrated with a song though!

Our teams in Bristol and Birmingham supported two local charities last year, Above & Beyond in Bristol, and Birmingham Children’s Hospital. Their fundraising efforts, including Dress Down Friday’s, a Grand Raffle and a weekly football card competition, raised the fantastic total of £1,000 which was split equally between the two charities. Well done everyone!

Congratulations to our division Low Energy Consultancy (LEC) which celebrates its 5th birthday this month!

Since 2011, construction and infrastructure has become more focused on environmental issues, policies and procedures, so the company has developed its expertise and knowledge. The company has grown too, with team members in offices in Birmingham and London, as well as Head Office in Northampton.

As the Briggs and Forrester Group looks towards its 70th year in 2017, we know that an exciting future lies ahead for all!
