We carefully consider the social and economic impact of every project. Our aim is to use our presence to enrich the community. Here's how we make it happen:
Providing a net positive
We don't believe that having construction work done needs to cause a feeling of dread. Instead, it can be a source of interest and an opportunity to learn, which is why we always try to 'give back', by running educational events to get the local community involved in the project.
We pride ourselves on being 'good neighbours' during every construction project. This means minimising the impact on the surrounding area. Whether it's noise, dust, hours of working, or light pollution, we keep it to a minimum. All of this forms a key part of our high CCS scores.
Our Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) Gold Awards (for Underfall Yard and Fosse Way School) aren't just puff. We consistently achieve scores in the 8's (Excellent) and 9's (Exceptional) in our CCS evaluations.
Local company, local impact
We're proud of our Bristol roots and we use a strong local supply chain and recruit local employees and apprentices. This local focus ensures the money our clients spend with us is redistributed locally wherever possible.
As well as working closely with charities like YMCA, we also sponsor local heritage events, school initiatives, and give donations to charities. Recent charities supported by John Perkins Construction include Above and Beyond, Marmalade Trust, The Green House, and Tenovus Cancer Care.
“The service we received from John Perkins Construction was outstanding. The workforce was polite, helpful, and accommodating. Their communications were clear, and they always asked the ‘right’ questions, so they could understand how to suit our needs in the best way possible.”
