On 29th November, a CSR Awareness and Training day was held at our Walkden Office. Delivered by Project Five, topics from Environmental Sustainability, to our Community and People Priorities were covered and enthusiastically debated.
Our first CSR report was reexamined in detail, and we reflected on our successes and possible improvements from 2016, whilst some great ideas looking ahead to 2017 were put forward by those in attendance.
The CSR Training and Awareness day was well received by all in attendance, and we look forward to developing our CSR Report for 2016, which will outline our goals for next year.
We extend our thanks to Dr Michelle Brennan of Project Five for her help and enthusiasm in delivering an excellent presentation.
Works have successfully completed at Turner Street in Manchester for Boss Model Agency.
The 29 week project saw the full refurbishment and fit out of the grade II listed building, which has been given a new lease of life by the refurbishment works carried out. City Build have been working in close partnership with local authorities, conservation officers and the client in order to satisfy all parties. The works have been completed to a high standard which captures the essence of the original building.
Works are now progressing on the logistically demanding project we are undertaking for Albis UK. Supervised by Simon Green, we are constructing a new roof above an existing building whilst the building remains operational. The below is a selection of photographs taken as works progress.
The new MRI suite provides a positive, calming and reassuring experience for all its patients, blending high quality clinical diagnostic services, with soft furnishings, helping patients feel both calm and reassured. Extending into the scanner rooms themselves, empowering patients by allowing them to generate a room ambience to their own personal taste / requirements.
