Cystic Fibrosis fundraising 100 mile bike ride Briggs and Forrester

A group from Briggs & Forrester, together some of our clients, will take to their bikes on 9th June to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. This is no ride in the park though – the team will cover nearly 100 miles as they travel between our Birmingham and Bristol offices!

The charity was chosen in support of the family of Business Development Manager Shane Brennan, whose 18 month old daughter Annabel is affected by the condition.

Project Angel, Northampton

Work is continuing well at the site of the new Council offices in Northampton. The installation of the high level modules is complete; these modules include LTHW, CHW and domestic pipework as well as electrical containment. The low level modules will be installed shortly. It was a sunny day when the trench heating and cooling units were delivered recently so they will start to be installed shortly too. Activity on every floor, from the roof to the basement!

Cambridge Construction rugby in aid of Alzheimer's Research UK

Congrats to the Consultants team at the recent Cambridge Construction Industry Charity Rugby match. Unfortunately Stephen Green from Briggs and Forrester Engineering Services was on the losing Contractors team, but as he said afterwards, “It was a good day with some good rugby, supporting a great cause – and we enjoyed a few post-match beers too!” The event raised over £5,000 for Alzheimer’s Research UK, so well done everyone who supported.
