Adam Scoops Award at NFB

Adam receives the NFB Corporate Social Responsibility Outstanding Individual Award

Emanuel Whittaker has been recognised for our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility at the 2012 National Federation of Builders Awards in London.

Lead Resident Liaison Officer Adam Berry received a Commendation for his dedication and efforts in supporting the residents of Laurence Lowry Court, a sheltered scheme in Swinton during the extensive improvement works which were carried out there last year.

Being a sheltered scheme meant that many of the residents had a variety of needs. Some were simply lonely whilst others were too frail to venture out of the block with conditions ranging from mild dementia to severe mobility needs.

Whilst getting to know the residents Adam had discovered what a lifeline the communal activities provided to many of them. He realised that closing down the communal areas and calling a halt to activities could effectively render many residents housebound for the duration of the work.

Adam and the site team were determined that residents well-being would be at the heart of the planned work. And so it was. Adam introduced his own ‘meals on wheels’ service. The team helped residents with shopping, taking their bins out, making cups of tea and spending 5 minutes with them to have a reassuring chat.

Adam and the team arranged various trips sponsored by Emanuel Whittaker. A barge trip to the Portland Basin Museum and a trip to the Theatre. The highlight was a mock up of Westminster Abbey to host the Royal Wedding party.

Emanuel Whittaker are a contractor with a social conscience which is why City West have chosen us to deliver the improvement works on all their sheltered schemes.

Well done to Adam and Emanuel Whittaker site team!
