Going the Extra Mile in Construction
Throughout the current pandemic, we have thousands of people to be grateful to. NHS staff, cleaners, shop workers, carers, manufacturers and other key workers who are applying themselves to help the UK routinely. As we all work together individually and as a team to combat the spread of COVID-19, we thought it would be great to highlight the work our partners and previous projects are doing to help.
We are proud to have introduced these projects in the country through gas, electric and water connections so that in crucial times like these, essential utilities can be supplied to support all.
Completed last year, the Joseph Leckie Academy has announced a competition amongst pupils that are now schooling from home to create thank you letters and posters for local NHS staff. A really heartfelt method to show appreciation to show the public healthcare system support from communities.
Our project on Fair Havens in Southend-on-Sea was completed at the end of last year. For extra measures, the private care home is opening up its beds to NHS patients, alleviating the pressure on the NHS. This is a substantial example for healthcare sectors to support each other during times of heightened use and needs of beds, equipment, space and comfort.
In addition to these great efforts, the hospitality sector has also stepped in with aid. We completed a project of a wedding venue development, owned by professional boxer Amir Khan, by supplying gas and water connections. Last week, Amir Khan announced on his personal Twitter and professional LinkedIn that he would be opening the venue to the public for NHS assistance.
We are so pleased to know that because of Mr Khan’s generosity and the utility connections made, affected people are able to be cared for and key workers can feel supported in a comfortable environment.
We thank everyone in construction for continuing to work on essential projects, supplying medical buildings, food stores, warehouses and utility connections to residential. We are proud to be in a supportive community, and one held up by it’s high health and safety standards.
We would love to hear of the work in our industry that is being completed, please share any commercial and residential developments on social media with us and others to spread the positivity across the sector during this difficult time.
