More than just building
At Halsall we are committed to engaging with the local community and responding to social, environmental and economic issues across all aspects of our work before the work starts on site.
Our effective communication process ensures that all individuals and stakeholder groups are fully informed and can provide feedback, ensuring we minimise as much disruption to local communities as possible.
We aim to engage with everyone within close proximity to our projects. Some of our previous activities include visiting schools to raise awareness of health and safety and taking pupils on site visits.
We stay true to what drives us and ensure that our efforts are driven by the passion and commitment to ethical change of our people.
The Considerate Constructors Scheme
The Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) is a non-profit-making, independent organisation set up by the construction industry to improve its image by striving to promote and achieve best practice under five key areas:
All of our sites are registered with the scheme. We take pride in achieving excellent scores and are regularly awarded performance beyond compliance certificates. You can see an example of this at the bottom of the page.
Supporting the Local Community
We are committed to investing locally and building strong, collaborative relationships with the local community. We actively use local labour and materials wherever possible on all of our projects. We are proud of our heritage as a long-standing employer in our local community and support young people starting their careers by offering structured apprenticeships, internships, and trainee and graduate roles.
As well as employing locally, we sponsor local sports teams and have been involved in local charitable causes and events. Most recently we hired an ice cream van for a local street party in Bristol and again for the children of Windrush Primary School in Witney.
Our most unique community support experience was with the Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service. They made the most of our tower crane on our Droitwich site. It’s no surprise that the Fire and Rescue service don’t get too many opportunities to practice a tower crane emergency rescue, so they arrived in the their full uniform and did just that. We were more than happy to allow them to use our site for such an important training activity.
