Making a big social impact in Lewisham

Whilst delivering the London Lewisham Gateway Phase Two regeneration contract which comprises of 530 residential apartments, 119 co-living units, workspaces and retail and leisure facilities, we have created over £200 million of social value within a 40-mile radius of the project. Our focus on the local community has seen 1,715 local people work on the project.

We have also delivered outreach activities that introduce young people to our industry and help them with their studies or to gain employment. The activities include working with Circle Collective, who support young people experiencing a range of barriers to find permanent, life-changing work. We invited their students to the project to learn more about the construction industry and the roles it has to offer. 

We have also been working closely with local education providers to deliver careers talks, CV workshops and work experience placements.

The project team have also been supporting local charity, The Felix Project, which aims to tackle food waste and hunger across London, by volunteering at their local warehouse each month.
