Good community engagement

During the project work in Milton Keynes, Ringway office staff carried out considerable planning, to notify stakeholders and divert traffic, with the minimal disruption to the community.

In order to ensure good community relations the following initiatives were undertaken:

  • Participation in a Council-led recycling event for electronic items;
  • The workforce used their paid volunteer days to help local schools and parish councils to build fences and manage traffic for large events in the area;
  • Operatives and office staff took part in a project to clean up the local lake;
  • A ‘Name the Gritter’ competition was introduced, involving local young residents;
  • Macmillan coffee mornings were held;
  • Company wide initiatives were used to encourage personal health and safety amongst the workforce, which included an exercise bike in the office and a ‘Steps for Health’ pedometer challenge.

All of this work helped Ringway Milton Keynes to win the Steps for Health competition against 102 teams across the UK.

They used the £50 voucher winnings to purchase food and put together hampers, which were then donated to the local Milton Keynes Food Bank.

These goodwill gestures demonstrated a caring and considerate constructor. Good community engagement also helps to create and leave behind a positive impression of the industry.
