Boosting local employment and training
From day one, we committed to employing local labour and suppliers, recruiting ten people from the surrounding area and spending 55% of our subcontracting budget with local companies. We also provided supervisor training, leadership, management and advanced health and safety training for our subcontractors..
Through our National Construction Skills Academy programme, we organised 113 activities to support the curriculum of Bradford College students, and welcomed 19 work placement students to site. Two apprentices worked with us on site.
