We’re committed to being a considerate and caring member of the community.
From the initial letter to the near completion, we have been kept updated of timescales, any noisy activities and general information. The noise, dust and waste have been kept to a minimum and the site staff have always been very helpful and courteous.
In a tight space with lots of public interaction, you have been clean, tidy and thoughtful to the locals. The construction industry gets bad press when they don’t perform well so I would like to thank you and long may your good work continue.
At Cawarden, we build strong relationships with our neighbours through proactive community relations and giving the utmost consideration to the impact of our works.
Ensuring a sensitivity to local residents and maintaining the uninterrupted operations of local businesses; our site teams will keep all local stakeholders informed and updated on the works taking place. And if any issues do arise, we’ll always do our best to quickly and efficiently resolve them. It’s our promise.
Charities & Good Causes
One of the greatest rewards of our success is that we are able to support many worthy causes.
We’ve raised tens of thousands of pounds over the years for several local Derby charities, including the Padley Group and The Titan Children’s Trust.
From the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity Christmas Lunch, the EEM Building Communities Awards, and the Poppy Fields Music Festival in association with The Royal British Legion, we’re pleased to support a variety of charitable events to help raise vital funds for a range of good causes.
Supporting Local Communities
We help boost regional economies by maintaining a reliable and trusted local supply chain. So, from skips to site welfare, we’ll support local businesses whenever we can – providing they meet our strict ethical and procurement requirements.
Much of our workforce comes from in and around Derby and we’re proud to be a major industry employer of the region.
We’re lucky Cawarden HQ is located on a picturesque working farm. Our love for the land and the environment means we’re especially passionate about environmental and conservation efforts. We love to get involved in projects that allow us to give back to benefit local communities.
