Our project teams engage with local people, businesses and voluntary organisations during construction to help them understand what the project is going to deliver and find out if they have any specific needs.

We use a tool called LM3 to measure how our investment in each community we work in adds economic value. The tool, developed by the New Economics Foundation, measures the ‘local multiplier’ effect – the benefit to the local economy as a result of money being spent, and re-spent. The number of projects to which the LM3 tool was applied increased significantly in 2015.

The Group secured 49 awards in the 2015 Considerate Constructors Scheme Awards, demonstrating our respect towards the communities in which we work, the people who work on our sites, and the environment (2014: 47 awards).
