And there’s more…

Desk tops, desk dividers  and carpets all still to be chosen and there’s a huge selection out there!  At the recent Steering Committee meeting we narrowed it down to a range of colours and textures.  It’s very exciting for us to be involved in the way Jubilee House will look inside but daunting at the same time as a decision needs to be made soon!

The Lytham Beach Clean up!

Today (23.04.14) the Friends of the Estuary Coastal Care Group, Conlon Construction and Danbro took part in a beach clean up.  This is something the Friends of the Estuary Coastal Care Group do every week but this time we were able to join them!

All ready to go!

All ready to go!

We met at 1030 am at Jubilee House  where Meg from the Friends of the Estuary, gave us a brief overview of what the clean up was all about.  It’s not just about maintaining the award winning surrounding beaches of Lytham but also about trying to protect the birds and wildlife, many of which are hurt or even killed by the debris swept up and rubbish left on the beaches.

Following a quick Health & Safety briefing by Jim we were split into teams, given our instructions (the buddy system and to have fun) and off we went.

Within a matter of minutes the amount of rubbish collected was unbelievable…from bottles, cans, crisp packets, lighters, car tyres, huge pieces of metal and 100s of plastic bags!   And when the bin bags were full we called it a day (although many wanted to continue).  But what a great achievement and fabulous team work!

At the end of the clean up!

Decisions, decisions…

An update from Adrian Manning from Manning Elliott.

We’ve got a bigger office since last year which means we’ve got more space to review samples etc.  It’s a mixed blessing as you can see from the plethora of carpets and vinyls that we’re looking at for the new offices etc!

You can see the concentrationl levels!

This is the ironmongery suite that’s been chosen,  maybe you can zoom in to see it better. It’s a good, chunky, contemporary lever handle design that won’t, or shouldn’t, catch any unruly sleeves. No prizes for the first one that does get caught!

Getting the team together…

If you’ve ever wondered how everyone working on a large development, such as Jubilee House, knows exactly what to do and when, well, it’s because key members of the workforce attend Gordon’s (Site Manager) weekly update meeting!

Every Friday morning, Gordon sets out the week’s work requirements and expectations (basically a very long and detailed list of jobs for the coming week!).  A very busy team meeting…but tea and biscuits are provided!
