Family Fun Day, Briggs and Forrester, Special Projects

Our recent Family Fun Day went down very well with the teams from our Special Projects and Central Services divisions. The skies may have been a little grey but there was nothing dull about the classic events that employees and their families enjoyed – from welly wanging, to the sack race, to egg and spoon, to skipping, to the tug-of-war finale!

All proceeds from the day will be going to The Brain Tumour Charity.

Thank you to all our helpers and to the Northampton Casuals Rugby Club as an ideal venue.

Chillers, Project Angel, Northampton

The latest delivery at the Project Angel site in Northampton has landed! Two new chillers have been placed on the roof of the Council's town centre development. The chillers will help to keep the new offices and IT rooms nice and cool – very important with the weather we’ve been having over the last week!

Ride London bike ride WellChild

Good luck to our Group IT Development Manager Derek Hine who will be taking part in the Prudential Ride London event next Sunday 31st July. Derek truly is a glutton for punishment; after getting on his bike for our charity 100-mile office-to-office ride in June, this time he’ll be battling the Surrey countryside and the streets of London. Derek is taking part in aid of WellChild, the national charity for sick children, which provides practical help for youngsters with serious illness and complex conditions.

Wandsworth Riverside CCS audit

Well done to our MEP team at our residential development project at Riverside, Wandsworth. As members of the Considerate Constructors Scheme the team are audited to ensure they are complying with the aims and principles of the scheme – in the latest visit they passed with flying colours!

The focus of the CCS is to look at how a member cares about the appearance of their team and the site, respects the community, protects the environment, secures everyone’s safety and values their workforce.
