Construction firm supports social enterprise scheme

Colmore Tang Construction has strengthened its support of a Birmingham-based social enterprise that provides skills and employment to people by integrating its products and services into its supply chain.

The contractor has ordered 80 recycled wood planters from the Jericho Foundation - worth £30,000 - and plans to install them at Kettleworks, the Jewellery Quarter development of 292 one- and two-bedroom apartments that Colmore Tang is delivering for Seven Capital. It has also enlisted the charity’s support with waste wood and cardboard collections.

The wood recycling social enterprise is one of eight businesses that the Jericho Foundation operates in Birmingham, a charity that supports local people who experience personal or occupational barriers to employment, giving them the skills and experience needed to gain employment.

CTC consolidated its support for the enterprise, following a fundraiser it held for the charity earlier this summer, when it raised £2,570 at its first annual conference at Park Regis hotel in Birmingham.

Steve Underwood, COO of Colmore Tang, said: “We are extremely pleased in the way the partnership has developed in just two months. In that time we have not only raised vital funds that have been directed towards Jericho’s work supporting victims of modern slavery in the region, but we are now integrating them into our supply chain.”
