Community Benefits

Wynne Construction is committed to our "Wynne Communities First Initiative" which enables us to deliver a truly sustainable project for the local community. 

Prior to commencement of a project and where appropriate, we organise and hold a ‘Meet the Buyer’ event in conjunction with Business Wales and ConstructionSkills. The aim of this event is to give local SME organisations an opportunity to meet with us and share information about our collaborative working and the high quality standards we aim to achieve on our projects.  Similarly, if appropriate to the project, we organise a “Jobs Fair” in conjunction with the local Job Centre Plus, aimed at
highlighting the potential employment opportunities which the project offers to local people.

Sustainability Action Plan

We endeavour to support the communities in which we are working, and through our Sustainability Action Plan (SAP) we aim to provide benefits not only to businesses but also to the surrounding community members.  This can include:

  • Maximising the use of SME (including social enterprise) organisations within 30 miles of each project site.
  • Fulfilling our Iaith Pawb commitment to the core Welsh-speaking labour force on each project.
  • Promoting the construction industry through school and college engagement activities including site visits.
  • Organising educational safety visits to schools by the Considerate Constructor Scheme’s mascot Ivor Goodsite.
  • In conjunction with our supply chain, offering work experience/apprenticeship opportunities to young people, with no previous experience or industry knowledge.
  • Providing support to local clubs and organisations within the project locality as appropriate.
  • Sharing project news and progress through dedicated project pages on our website, newsletters, emails, hoarding bulletin boards, Facebook and Twitter.

Community benefits are of utmost importance to Gwynedd Council; we established a new way of working on the Ysgol Hendre project to maximise local economic benefit. Wynne Construction worked with us and shared our vision, they were committed to achieving these goals and as a result the Hendre project won the Value Award at both the Wales and National Constructing Excellence Awards 2013.
