Love Local

Ease of access is essential in supporting the community integrate with the site.

A construction site in many cases can be found in the centre of the community and intersection of transport, people, culture and activities. It therefore becomes just as much a part of the community and local environment.

The example below shows how one site built on this principle:

  • A site specific ‘Love Local’ file had been created which provides a comprehensive guide to local shops, services and other information useful to the workforce, visitors and particularly anyone needing to stay in York to work on the project;
  • The file is updated with feedback from users to expand the content and include reviews;
  • The 35 section headings include accommodation, restaurants and fast food outlets; park and ride, bus and cycle hire; places of worship, and libraries; gym, theatre and cinema;
  • The file will remain in the completed building as a resource for new students to use.
