Back to the Tools day for North West housing scheme




Back to the Tools day for North West housing scheme

Senior staff members at builder and developer, Seddon, have taken part in a ‘Back to the Tools’ day on a housing development for longstanding customer, Halton Housing Trust.

 

Seddon’s regional director for the North West, Duncan Williams, spent the day with colleagues Steve Foster and Karl Roberts from the company’s direct services team working alongside Halton Housing Trust’s project manager for development, Nick Anderson, at the Latham Avenue site in Runcorn.

 

The group helped bricklayers, joiners and other Seddon tradespeople carry out vital work on the £9.4 million project and learnt more about their specific roles in the process.

 

Duncan Williams said: “As well as being great fun, our ‘Back to the Tools’ day is about staying connected to our employees, at all levels of the business, and being as close as possible to our clients’ projects. By understanding the importance of each role and the skill involved, we can continuously improve staff experiences on site and enhance the way Seddon works as a team.”

 

Nick Anderson, Halton Housing Trust, said: “The work at Latham Avenue is one of the largest housing schemes we have embarked on in Runcorn, providing much needed, high quality homes for the local community.

 

“We are delighted to be working once again with Seddon and enjoyed getting stuck into some hard work and seeing how the talented team is bringing this exciting development to life.”

 

The 95 properties are being built on the former infant, junior and nursery school site on Latham Avenue and will comprise 24 one-bed apartments, plus 45 two-bedroom and 14 three-bedroom homes for social rent.

 

A further 12 three bedroom houses will be made available for market sale by Seddon Homes, the building firm’s sister company. The development is set to be completed in December 2017.
