As well as reinforcing the social dimension of sustainable construction by demonstrating a commitment to social responsibility, we recognise that improved relationships with the local community can also bring about business benefits both in the short and long term, both for IKON and our clients.
Many construction projects can take several months or a year to complete. And it is widely accepted that the sudden presence of construction teams can have a big impact on the local area. In every instance we endeavour to use our influence in a positive manner. Many of our projects have ultimately improved the environment for residents and business owners, and we have long-experience of building in sensitive areas.
Wherever possible we will introduce ourselves to local residents and business owners and aim to identify any potential community area that we could dedicate time and resources to improving.
