Public Relations and Career Encouragement

During a project, it is essential to keep the public and the community informed and updated on your project’s progress.

This helps establish good relations within the community and should help to reduce the number of complaints or help make any potential issues easier to resolve.

Communicating with the local community is also a great way of promoting the positive image of the industry and encouraging a career in construction for future generations.

Examples of how a number of sites have demonstrated maintaining good public relations and encouraging a career in the industry include:

  • Updated aerial videos of the site, filmed from a crane or other high vantage points, were uploaded to YouTube;
  • A large CPD event was held on-site, for school teachers, in collaboration with the client. The aim was to overcome some of the stereotypes associated with careers in construction;
  • Visits to the steelwork fabrication workshop were organised for local primary school children, which received local press coverage.
