St Leger Homes of Doncaster - Intake Tower Blocks
Presented to: Robert Barkworth and Ryan Spencer
Contractor: Henry Boot Construction Limited
Client: St Leger Homes of Doncaster Limited

Supported by a central compound, this project required the replacement of windows and doors of three tower blocks in a residential suburb of Doncaster.

With only a16 week project duration, the site team accomplished an exceptionally wide range of community support initiatives. These included: providing a new kitchen for a community centre and sponsoring its open day; holding a football tournament with prizes and trophies; arranging a youth club dance with gift vouchers awarded; the provision of materials; assistance and funds for the local allotments; and supplying a table tennis table for the school. Materials were also provided for a local policeman who was creating a planted area for handicapped children.

In addition to providing a popular respite facility with TV, games, washers and dryers, the site produced its own hi vis uniform with each operative’s name shown to avoid any confusion with the bogus callers that had become a local problem.

With an environmental roadshow on-site, the training of operatives to help the client identify domestic abuse, and an immaculately presented exterior, this site recorded an outstanding performance and set new considerate standards for short duration projects.
