A key performance indicator and driver for many of our clients is the commitment of their supply chain to Social Value initiatives. As a Salford company we are genuinely committed to investing in and around the communities affected by our business in particular in the Greater Manchester area.
The majority of our own supply chain is based in the Greater Manchester area so through the work we undertake together we are continually benefitting local communities. A recent LM3 report calculated that for every £1 of company turnover generated we reinvest £2.21 in the Greater Manchester area.
In addition we support and work with local charities and community groups such as Reuben’s Retreat (see below), Ardwick Boxing Club, Clayton and Greenfield Cricket Clubs.
For the majority of our projects we endeavor to prioritse local advertising and recruit local resources through organisations such as the Job Centre Plus, Aspire Recruitment (a non profit making recruitment provider) or “The Works” the University of Manchester’s own support group. We believe local people bring a greater energy and commitment to projects which benefit their own communities.

Reuben’s Retreat is a charity that was born in memory of Reuben Michael Graham who tragically passed away aged 23 months. Their goal is to provide a retreat in the North West of England countryside that will relieve the distress of families and their close friends who have suffered the bereavement of a child or have a child suffering from a life limiting or life threatening illness.
City Build are proud to have worked with our supply chain to offer our services free of charge to help transform a disused hospital in the Glossop area into a retreat as a place where families can take the time to rebuild their lives.
