Stoptober, the 28-day stop smoking campaign from Public Health England. This year, Stoptober encourages smokers to find the most suitable support for them, rather than trying to go “cold turkey”.
Extending our Cable Drum initiative and community engagement commitments, we have successfully delivered a further 2 cable drum tables to the Jubilee Primary School in Brixton!
In the spirit of all things community, we have received in the post a copy of the Bell’s Yews Green Parish News – our community project you can read about here featured and a lovely thank you card to the “BCM All-stars”.
For over 30 years BCM have kept health, safety and well-being at the heart of our organisation. In 2017, we officially made the local communities we work in a measurable business priority, featuring them as a target on our scorecard – at least one project or scheme per project.
BCM Construction’s Jenny Peters and Dave Allen went back to school this week! Why some may ask? They visited Hilmarton Primary School in Calne near Swindon, to talk to 66 Year 5 & 6 children about how BCM made the cable drum picnic tables and the importance of staying safe on the railway.
We have engaged with Kingston University Talent’s Broadening Horizon’s Programme and held our first meeting with the students who are working on an exciting business challenge for us.
BCM Construction has kept safety, quality and people at the heart of our business for over 30 years. We had the opportunity to extend these core values to our local communities by crafting and donating 10 tables and 20 benches to 4 primary schools in partnership with Network Rail.
BCM are on the front cover of Network Rail publication “The Shield”, we debut with the first ever female cover model – Jenny Peters, our Environment & Sustainability Manager. Read all about our effort to make our Battersea site sustainable and go green scheme; in addition to our charity work – creating a garden walkway for the rehabilitated dogs at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home
BCM Construction, Network Rail IP Southern Team, Crewit and Glenamaddy came together to complete volunteer work at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. The 27-strong team carried out the renovation of the gravel path used as a walking route for the homeless and unwanted dogs at the Home. The pathway is now a glorious garden walkway at the iconic London site – see pictures below of the transformation.
BCM are reducing, reusing and recycling with the introduction of our refillable water bottles for all staff and site teams! This significantly reduces the environmental impact of plastic cups – which contribute 79% to the world’s plastic found in landfills. The bottle is functional, lightweight and complete with a ‘hydration scale’ – encouraging you to drink approximately 2 litres of water a day (as per UK health guidelines) to reduce fatigue and improve health.
