Friday, 29th August – photos

As you can see from the photographs it was a good turnout on Friday, 29th August for the Jubilee House coffee morning.  These are very informative meetings and a great opportunity for the community to meet up!

Another coffee morning…

A fabulous turnout at the coffee morning held at Jubilee House on Friday, 29th August.  Danbro, Conlons, local residents, friends of the estuary, local counsellor and the Blackpool Gazette were all there.

A great event that brings the local community together to openely discuss the Jubilee House development as well as the chance to take a brief tour of the inside of the building.    Some lovely tea and delicious cakes as well!

Gordon from Conlon’s opened the meeting with a brief overview of where we are in terms of building completion and Damian and Helen, co-owners of Danbro, confirmed that we will be in the building, and fully operational, from the 5th January.

Despite the wettest August in history we are still on track.  So this is it…the final countdown (I’m sure that sounds like a song to me!).

Well done to all involved in hosting the coffee morning.  See you at the next one!

Recent Student Visit to Jubilee House

Blackpool & The Fylde College students made a recent visit to Jubilee House (they’re all working towards a joinery qualification), where they were given presentations (in a specially set up ‘Safe Zone’!) on all aspects of Health & Safety and the ‘behind-the-scenes’ workings on a building site. A tour of the site then followed.

Another great coffee meeting…

our thanks to Gordon, site manager, for organising another fabulous coffee morning at Jubilee House last Thursday. Representatives from Conlon, local residents, Friends of the Estuary and Danbro were all there.

As usual it was a very open and interesting forum with a brief presentation by Gordon and Damian, MD of Danbro, highlighting the building developments and changes going forward, with a question and answer session at the end.

Everybody seated!

Lin, from the breakers, also expressed her thanks (on behalf of the residents) to both Conlon and Danbro for communicating to all parties what was happening, keeping everybody in the loop.

These open coffee mornings are great with a fabulous turnout…and at the next one there could be a tour of the building.   Contact Gordon at the site if you would like to attend a future meeting.

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!

Conlon and the Community

Yesterday, (26.02.14) Michael Conlon, Managing Director & Chairman of Conlon Construction Ltd, visited the Jubilee House site to take the opportunity to introduce himself and meet those directly involved or possibly affected by the development.

Michael, together with the site manager, Gordon firstly met representatives of the local residents to listen and address any possible concerns.

Conlon prides itself on being a part of the ‘Considerate Constructors Scheme’ and to this end, the company was grateful to resident, Lin Davies for being interviewed in support of the continued registration of the Jubilee House development in the scheme.

Michael also met Meg Green and Michelle Stannard, of the ‘Friends of the Estuary’, to listen to possible concerns and views and to offer the Company’s support and help in respect of the surrounding local environment. 

Conlon Construction will Sponsor the “Friends of the Estuary” at the up and coming  events “ Love our Estuary”, “Joint Litter Pick” and “Lytham Bloom” and provide the group with embalmed high vis vest and protective gloves.

Open Forum…great turnout!

As you can see from the photos taken at the recent coffee morning held at Jubilee House we had a great turnout.   Lots of questions asked and Gordon, site manager, confirmed everything was going well (despite the recent storms).
