Corporate Social Responsibility

we-care

We care about the way we do business and we’re proud that we do it responsibly, professionally and ethically. We have developed a CSR strategy that reflects our commitment to working together with our staff, our clients and the community around us to ensure that any impact we make on the world is for the better.

Valuing People

We are committed to creating a working environment where our staff can flourish and achieve their personal and professional goals. We know that establishing a workplace where people feel motivated, supported and connected doesn’t just help them – it also helps us to attract and retain the best people. We want all of our staff to be happy, challenged and fulfilled in their roles so we invest in their development through training and mentoring, skills development and leadership programmes to enable all individuals to achieve their full potential and do a great job for our clients.

We know that it’s our people who make our business successful and we believe that they should be rewarded accordingly and share in its progress and success. In recognition of this we provide competitive market salaries and a range of benefits and social events that demonstrate our commitment to staff well-being both professionally and personally and that contribute to an enjoyable, safe and supportive working environment for all.

We believe that everyone should be treated as individuals, fairly and with respect. Our staff come from a wide range of backgrounds and ages and their varied knowledge and experience is a source of new ideas and creativity. Teamwork, collaboration and sharing of experience is also very important to us and our approach to doing business.

Commitment to the Environment

We feel that our success as a business should not come at the cost of the environment, so we strive to operate in ways that minimise our own environmental impact and promote good environmental practice. Whether we are saving costs by reducing energy consumption or creating desirable buildings through innovative, sustainable design, reducing our impact on the environment is very important to us.

As designers of buildings and the built environment we believe that we have a special responsibility to help create buildings and environments that are sensitive to the environment and sustainable in the long term. To this end we set and follow best practice in our work. We incorporate technical developments, costs and client concerns and expectations in the design and construction of all of our projects.

We are committed to continuing to operate with respect for the environment in all our activities while growing our position as an industry leader in sustainability.

Investing in Communities

Well designed and expertly built environments have a positive effect on how we all feel and behave. This is especially true for homeless, vulnerable or sick people and those who care for them. We believe in giving something back and supporting the local communities in which we operate.

Working closely with our staff and clients we identify opportunities to interact with and support local communities and charities to make a positive difference to people’s lives. We do this through a range of initiatives focussed on supporting local community interest groups, education and work placement initiatives, and charitable donations and volunteering.

Our charity of choice, voted for by our staff is CRASH. We are proud to support them in raising money through a number of company charity initiatives such as our N-Able Group Bake off!
