Stonewater celebrates 5000th home opening

A new development located in Newhaven, East Sussex, on the former Parker Pen factory site, has marked leading social housing provider, Stonewater’s 5000th new home completed since the association’s formation in 2015. Representatives from Stonewater, including Chairman Sheila Collins, CEO Nicholas Harris, as well as members of the development team that have been involved in the project, welcomed the Mayor of Newhaven, Councillor Paul Boswell to the site opening, which took place recently. The scheme, called Safford Park, incorporates 145 new homes being built on the former Parker Pen factory site and close to the River Ouse, which will provide a range of affordable housing options for residents. Developed by Hill Partnerships, an award-winning house builder that operates across London and the Southeast, the Safford Park scheme is the first collaboration between Stonewater and the construction firm. Each of the homes have been built to EPC B energy rating standards and offer electric vehicle charging points. The development will also incorporate a community garden and allotment space to encourage environmentally friendly living. Stonewater, which is renowned for its inclusion of public art at its developments has paid homage to the history of the site with the artistic display for Safford Park. The entranceway to the development will be home to two oversized fountain pen nibs, while further nods to the Parker Pen history will be seen in pen lid shaped bollards and nib shaped railings that will be installed across the site. Nicholas Harris, CEO at Stonewater said: “We’re hugely proud to have reached our 5000th home achievement and at such a fantastic development at Safford Park, which really showcases the quality of sustainable homes we have built over the last seven years. Achieving this significant milestone is a testament to the team and our partners that have worked with us across every project that Stonewater has delivered to get us to this point.” Jonathan Layzell, Executive Director – Development at Stonewater “The site in Newhaven is incredibly important, not only to the local area where affordable housing is needed, but also to our overall mission to delivering good quality homes to people who need them most. “While we take a moment to celebrate the work that has got us to this point, we also look forward, as a team, to the next milestone, and beyond.” Paul Boswell, Mayor of Newhaven said: “I was delighted to be asked to attend the ceremony to mark the construction of the Stonewater’s 5000th home. The development in Newhaven is an attractive mix of houses and apartments of various sizes. New homes in our town are in high demand and I’m sure it won’t be long before all these quality properties are fully occupied. Harvey Dhami, Deputy Regional Director at The Hill Group comments: “We would like to congratulate Stonewater for achieving this impressive milestone and are delighted that homes at our Safford Park development have contributed to the 5,000 new homes provided. These energy efficient homes will deliver much needed affordable housing for the local community at Newhaven and ensure current and future generations can enjoy living in a high-quality sustainable home.” The development also provided opportunities for engagement with the local community. Strong links were established with students studying construction at Sussex College, who were invited to attend regular site visits and meet staff working on site, while children at the local primary school were involved in a poster competition showcasing what they like about their local area, with the winning posters displayed on site. The Hill Group also employed a number of local students at the site and plumbing apprentice, Kai Sol was presented with a new tool bag as a sign of appreciation for his involvement in the project at the opening event.

Schneider Electric kicks off its Innovation Summit World Tour with a call to keep accelerating sustainability action

Host of digital and people-centric solutions launched at flagship annual customer and partner event series CEO keynote lays out how adopting existing technologies at scale will help bolster energy security, resilience and decarbonization Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, today kicked off its Innovation Summit World Tour 2022 with a passionate call to address the triple crisis – energy, economic and climate – facing governments, businesses and consumers around the globe, and setting out its approach and solutions as to how to do this. “In a time of global crisis, we must have complete clarity on our journey and destination. The current energy crisis is only the tip of the iceberg,” said Jean-Pascal Tricoire, Chairman and CEO of Schneider Electric. “With energy demand globally anticipated to grow three-fold in the next 30 years, it’s vital that we deploy all the technologies that are already available now to accelerate electrification, digitization, and sustainability.”  Mr Tricoire was speaking at the start of what is Schneider Electric’s flagship annual customer event series in October and November, during which the company will unveil numerous innovative new product, software and service offerings that address the pressing environmental and social issues arising from the energy crisis and climate change. His comments come hot on the heels of Climate Week NYC, where Schneider Electric’s Chief Strategy and Sustainability Officer, Gwenaelle Avice-Huet, called for more attention to be paid to the often still underestimated demand-side of energy crisis — in other words, how much energy is consumed in the first place. The company’s Schneider Electric Research Institute  team issued a first of its kind quantitative study demonstrating the potential of available technologies, which, if combined and deployed at scale has the potential to lower carbon emissions by two-thirds by 2030, while generating massive savings on energy spend for building dwellers (up to 70%). Schneider has long advocated for urgent, concerted action to reduce energy waste, invest in renewables, electrify and digitalize energy ecosystems, and ensure that all this is done with economic and people welfare in mind. The company is widely recognized as a leader on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues, and its products, services and other activities help customers, suppliers, business partners and communities further their own progress on those fronts. Schneider will announce a raft of innovations at its Innovation Summit World Tour. Full details of the news from the Energy Management division can be found here  and innovations in the Industrial Automation space can be found here. Following local events in Middle East and Africa, Singapore, China and Belgium, the Innovation Summit World Tour   commences on October 12th with a global keynote address and press conference, and then moves on to: USA (Las Vegas) – 12th -13th October UK & Ireland (London, Coventry, Leeds, Galway) – 20th October Argentina –  25th – 26th October Indonesia (Jakarta) – 2nd -3rd November Hong Kong – 8th November With sustainability at its core, and to celebrate and champion initiatives around the world, Schneider also announced its Schneider Electric Sustainability Impact Awards, designed to recognize the critical role customers and suppliers play in delivering a more resilient and sustainable world. Understanding that our successful partners and suppliers will set the precedent for others to follow in their footsteps, the program hopes to deliver significant impact through considered sustainable and efficient practices. Nominations are now open, and the deadline for submissions is November 25.

Conlon Construction appointed to Leyland extra care scheme following planning approval

Conlon Construction has successfully commenced stage one of a two-stage tender process via the North West Construction Hub to deliver a new extra care facility in South Ribble, which will support independent living for older people. Planning approval has now been granted for Jubilee Gardens, located on West Paddock in Leyland, which will include 70 apartments with on-site support and facilities such as a café and hair salon, designed to help people live longer in their own homes. Owned and managed by South Ribble Borough Council, Jubilee Gardens is the first scheme of its kind in the borough, and has been designed in a sustainable way, including improved pedestrian links to Leyland town centre, secure cycle parking and mobility scooter hire to promote the use of eco-friendly transport. Work is planned to begin on site before the end of the year, with completion due in 2024. Applications of interest from potential residents will open from 2023. Michael Conlon, chairman at Conlon Construction, said: “This will be a pivotal development for the local area, setting new standards in the design of extra care facilities that are so vital for the community. “As with all of our projects, we will be ensuring that local contractors are tasked with supporting us, so we play our part in boosting businesses that, like us, contribute to the success of the local economy. “Now that planning approval has been granted, we’ll be getting straight to work so that older residents in South Ribble can begin to experience all the benefits of Jubilee Gardens as soon as possible.” Councillor Paul Foster, leader of South Ribble Borough Council, said: “I am very pleased that Jubilee Gardens has now got the go-ahead to start. This is the first scheme of this kind for South Ribble and will provide a much-needed housing solution for our ageing population. It is exciting to see the project move on to the next stage to deliver these benefits. “Despite the cost pressures within the construction industry the Council has committed to deliver the scheme to achieve high levels of energy efficiency to assist residents with the rising cost of living. Jubilee Gardens is part of South Ribble Borough Council’s planned investment programme for the borough, and I am pleased that we will be able to offer this support for residents in the future.” Artist’s impressions of the scheme can be viewed at www.southribble.gov.uk/jubileegardens

Acorn deepens its commitment to adding social value with the launch of a new building division

Acorn Building Services will combine the UK recruiter’s construction, M&E and housing output to further support availability of sustainable job opportunities for under-represented groups Acorn is launching an all-new division as it looks to deepen its commitment towards creating added social value for the benefit of the local communities it works in.   Acorn Building Services will combine the UK recruiter’s Construction, Mechanical, Engineering and Housing divisions into one, to help increase the availability of sustainable job opportunities for under-represented groups in all sectors.  Acorn has overseen a number of social value initiatives and consistently championed the introduction of new entrants into the construction industry in recent years, working with partners including Her Majesty’s Prison & Probation Service and homeless charity The Wallich, running its own Women in Construction initiatives, and more. With a focus on South Wales and Bristol to begin with, its Acorn Building Services division will now help drive forward new projects and initiatives aimed at further supporting its clients in contributing socially as well as economically to areas they work in too. Lawrence Beach, Client Development Director for Acorn, will be responsible for developing these initiatives, focusing on social value, people pathways, tenders and more. Operations Director Osian John will also head up the new division in an operational capacity and drive the day to day running of the team involved.  Lawrence said: “The work Acorn has already done using employment as a key driver to create social value is something that we are hugely passionate about across the organisation, and we feel now is the time to push forward with plans to implement and develop a range of new initiatives that we hope will prove invaluable to Acorn and the businesses we support in future too. “My role as part of Acorn Building Services will involve working closely with clients and local stakeholders to develop collaborative programmes that will assist Acorn and our clients in maximising the social value we are able to have within local communities. In essence, we want to ensure the employment opportunities we are involved in are used in the most productive, sustainable way possible.” Osian said: “We identified a need for Lawrence to spend a lot more time developing initiatives which will benefit the people and communities in which we work, but this on its own was a full-time commitment. So, I’ll be responsible for day-to-day operations around sales, business development, compliance and recruitment strategy, enabling Lawrence to give that job his full focus.” Acorn has a network of 30 branches supporting businesses with recruitment needs through its specialist divisions, which cover manufacturing, production, IT, legal, construction, commercial, energy, life sciences, aerospace and other sectors. Its Building Services division will initially support teams in Cardiff, Bristol and Gloucestershire to develop temporary and permanent employment partnerships with a community focus across the construction and housing sectors more widely. Marc Jones, Director of Operations Technical at Acorn, said the focus then would be on growing and developing Acorn Building Services as a division within its own right over the next 3 to 5 years, with the aim of expanding its services throughout the South West and beyond. Marc said: “This development really marks an important milestone for Acorn, as well as the businesses we’re able to support in contributing to communities where they work in a much more impactful and sustainable way, as our reputation across the construction and building services sectors has become more and more established, through working so closely with a large number of construction-related employers. ”The knock-on effect for workers, and for people looking for jobs, at all levels, whether skilled or currently un-skilled, can be genuinely transformational – and this is at the heart of the way our work across the building and construction areas has developed in recent years. It’s something we at Acorn think very deeply about, and are determined to continue to make as big an impact as we possibly can.” For more information visit about Acorn Building Services visit  www.acornpeople.com

World’s leading virtual care provider expands with new Brighton HQ

Teladoc, the world’s leading provider of virtual healthcare services to a wide range of insurers, large corporates, affinity groups and the NHS, has completed a relocation to larger premises in Brighton to support its sustained growth.  The fit-out to its 330sq m offices was completed by BRAC Contracts, the second such project it has delivered at Aspect House on Queen’s Road in the past few months. Active in the UK market for over 10 years, Teladoc has grown rapidly, and following the Covid-19 pandemic when this growth was further boosted, it became apparent that larger premises would be needed.  Larger premises, however, needed to also meet specific post-pandemic needs as Rachel Austwick, Office Manager, explains: “Having been based in Brighton for three years, we were acutely aware of how well established the area is for the digital, professional and health industries, so we were keen to remain here as the team grew further. However, it was imperative to make the new offices not only modern, but also flexible, accessible and above all a safe environment to which we could welcome staff and those who visit us for face-to-face meetings. “We spent a significant amount of time looking for the right location and when we found Aspect House it ticked so many boxes.  Not only is it a stone’s throw from both the train and bus stations, it also offered the accessibility needed for a business that welcomes visitors with mobility issues.  The floor itself had great potential, offering us the chance to create from scratch our own meeting room spaces and breakout area.” The Category-B fit-out work that BRAC Contracts carried out on the fifth floor which is now occupied by Teladoc, has been comprised of M&E alterations, stud partition walls and glass partitions, kitchen and break-out area installations, and the complete refurbishment of the bathroom facilities. Commenting on the work, Rachel continues: “It’s always nice to receive recommendations for work of this kind, but the benefit that we had was being able to witness first-hand the BRAC team in action on another floor of Aspect House and get to know them that way. “From our first meeting, it was clear that the BRAC team was professional, knowledgeable and had a great pedigree.  Having Tony Saxby, the Project Manager, on site made the experience smooth and the whole team was welcoming and attentive to answering our questions.  From the initial quote through to the recent completion and handover, they’ve all been brilliant, and I wouldn’t hesitate in either engaging them again, or recommending them to others.” Teladoc’s new Brighton base has been designed to accommodate up to 50 team members at any given time ranging from directors, through to clinical staff and support services such as HR and IT.  Concluding, Adam Clark MD at BRAC Contracts said: “Having successfully managed a commercial fit-out for Jarltech on the 3rd floor of Aspect House, it has been an honour to so quickly be recommended for another similar project in the same building. “Teladoc’s workload has exploded in the wake of the pandemic and working closely with Rachel and the team, we’ve successfully delivered a workspace that will sustain this busy team in their important work both today and for many years to come.”

Rental property owners in the sunshine coast: The importance of having good air conditioning for tenants

Introduction As a rental property owner on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland Australia, you know how important it is to keep your tenants happy. The last thing you want is for them to move out because they are not comfortable living in your properties. One of the best ways to make sure that this does not happen is by having good air conditioning systems installed at all of your rental properties. Air conditioning can be expensive but it is worth it because there are many benefits associated with having a good A/C system installed at any given time. Here are some reasons why you should invest in a new AC unit for your rental property: Air conditioning is a necessity, especially in the hot and humid weather of the Sunshine Coast Air conditioning is important for comfort, health and safety. It also reduces energy consumption and carbon emissions. Moreover, air conditioning can help you to secure your rental property from damage by mould growth caused by excessive moisture that builds up when a room is not cooled properly or regularly ventilated. The Sunshine Coast in Queensland Australia has a subtropical climate, which means that there are many hot days during the year (between October and April). Your tenants will be uncomfortable if they don’t have enough control over your internal temperature, so it’s important to install some kind of cooling system for your rental property as soon as possible before summer begins! It keeps your tenants at your property for longer As a rental property owner, you want your tenants to be comfortable living in your properties because this will keep them from moving out. If your tenant has a bad experience with one of your properties because it’s too hot or cold, then they may decide to move out. This means that you’ll need to deal with constant repairs and the loss of rent payments. To prevent this from happening, consider installing an air conditioner in all of the rooms where people will spend most of their time during summer months. If a tenant complains about being too hot or cold, you can simply turn up or down the temperature as needed without having them move out because they’re unhappy with their living conditions. Air conditioners should be checked regularly Always ensure that your air conditioners should be checked regularly for any problems that may arise. If you hear excessive noises from your air conditioning system, it is important to call an air conditioning repair service to check on the system. With this being said, there are a few things that you can check yourself if you hear these noises in your home: A good air conditioning system is not only necessary for your tenants but also for your budget as it will help reduce your energy bill by using less electricity As a landlord, you know how important it is to have a good air conditioning system in your rental property. Not only will your tenants be more comfortable and happier, they’ll also be able to save on electricity bills by using less power when they are at home. That being said, there are some easy ways that you can help yourself out too! The first thing to keep in mind is that an efficient air conditioning system should be one of the top priorities when choosing new appliances for your home as well as when purchasing appliances for tenants. Another thing worth noting is that all of these systems will use less energy than other types of portable cooling units like window fans or swamp coolers because they run continuously instead of intermittently (like many portable fans do). This means fewer costs overall – both financially and environmentally! Make sure you change your filters regularly You should change your air filters regularly, as they can become clogged and prevent the A/C from running effectively. You should also make sure you have a quality filter in place at the start of each season, so that it is ready to protect your tenants from allergens like pollen, animal dander, mould spores and dust mites. Clean air filters help keep your system running efficiently and save you money on repairs. To ensure this happens on time each year: Author Bio: The author Allan Smith is a professional finance writer specializing in personal finance. He has worked in the finance sector for a long time.

Leeds College of Building Celebrates National T Levels Week

Leeds College of Building Celebrates National T Levels Week

Leeds College of Building is celebrating the National T Levels Week, a celebration of the successful new two-year vocational training programme, with the introduction of the Design, Surveying & Planning for Construction T Level course. T Levels are qualifications for people aged between 16 and 19, who, after their GCSEs, want to focus on technical and vocational skills. Having been designed in collaboration with leading employers to provide the skills businesses across the region need, the goal of these qualifications is to help students into skilled employment, higher study, or apprenticeships. “Leeds College of Building is the UK’s only general Further Education college specialising in Construction and the Built Environment. As such, we are perfectly placed to work with our established network of regional and national employers to enhance T Level opportunities for students,” commented Nikki Davis, CEO & Principal at Leeds College of Building. “T Level students at Leeds College of Building will have access to state-of-the-art facilities and specialist teaching expertise. Students also benefit from established progression opportunities within higher and degree-level apprenticeships at the College and employment opportunities through our construction partners. Leeds College of Building is committed to equality, diversity, and inclusion. This new qualification will help us to better serve the region’s young people and workforce, opening up even more opportunities into high paying, skilled jobs.” Leeds College of Building is among a select number of education providers across England chosen to deliver this T Level programme from September 2022. At the heart of the course, a 45-day industry placement opens opportunities for the brightest talent entering the market. Time is split between 80% classroom learning and 20% industry placement lasting approximately seven weeks. All students will develop a general understanding of construction, including accurate and appropriate measurements, construction methods and building regulations, digital engineering techniques, design principles and processes, CAD, mathematical problem-solving, and sustainability and environmental impact. Amongst the employers on offer from Leeds College of Building for T Level students work placements is Caddick Construction Limited. “The new T Levels are a great alternative to entry-level qualifications as they help students gain valuable ‘on the job’ experience whilst undertaking their qualification, which will give them a great advantage going forward in their career. It will also help employers gain an early insight into the latest talent pool, helping with recruitment and social value benefits. It also helps us to develop the knowledge, attitude, and skills of the students entering the built environment,” said Debbie Watson, Social Value Manager (Yorkshire) at Caddick Construction Ltd. “Whilst working with us, students will spend time in each department at both our offices and on our sites to understand the workings of the main contractor. Students will also spend time with our consultants, such as the Architect, to understand how projects get to site, as well as spending time with subcontractors on our projects learning more about life on site,” Debbie concluded.
