B. W. May provide affordable homes for Ruckinge

B.W.May's development of six affordable homes for English Rural Housing Association at Chapel Field, Ruckinge, Ashford was officially opened on Wednesday 12th September by the Mayor of Ashford Cllr Robert Davidson.

The new homes were completed in March 2012 after a build programme of around nine months.

All six homes have achieved 'Lifetime Homes' and 'Building for Life' standards and have been awarded a level 4 Code for Sustainable Homes rating by using renewable technology which in this instance included the installation of Ground Source Heat Pumps and Mechanical Ventilation Heat Recovery systems.

All of this coupled with Kent Police’s “Secured by Design” award will make these new homes sustainable for the future with maximum security, maximum energy efficiency and minimum energy use.

The completion of the Ruckinge scheme, on time and budget reinforced B.W May’s ability to deliver at a very high level of specification for new affordable homes using modern methods of construction technology.

B. W. May adopts a Hippo

B. W. May are pleased to support the National Blind Children’s Society and their works to enable blind and partially sighted children to achieve educational and recreational goals by providing large print books, specialised computers, recreational opportunities and educational advice and guidance.

Last week we took part in their new “Baby Adoptables” game, where each player pays to guess where a soft toy is from. We raised £55.00 for the charity allowing them to purchase much needed items such as sensory toys, touch typing software and much needed books. In the process we have gained a new member of our team, a visually impaired Hippopotamus from Burma who has taken up a position in the board room.

B.W. May scored 35.5 out of 40 for the Considerate Constructors Scheme, their second site review at Marsh Road, Ruckinge. The Considerate Constructor Scheme ethos is to improve the image of the industry.

As part of the Considerate Constructor Scheme, we delivered a Health and Safety presentation to the Hamstreet Primary School, which is local to the site. The presentation included explaining the dangers of the site and a visit from Ivor Goodsite, which the children thoroughly enjoyed. The children from Hamstreet Primary School, also undertook a poster competition which helped reinforce what was explained that day.

We now look forward to incorporating the Considerate Constructor Scheme standards, to a higher proportion of our projects, which will add value to our clients and the local communities, where we will be working.
