Riverside East, Dalmarnock
“Delivering sustainable jobs for local people”
Client – Morgan Sindall plc
Project – Riverside East Development, Dalmarnock for Clyde Gateway URC
Duration – June 2013 – November 2014
The development commenced in June 2013 and Morgan Sindall asked us to assist the on-site team to deliver their community benefits commitments in January 2014. streets-uk took responsibility for liaison with the supply chain, the employability partner (Jobs and Business Glasgow) and the client. We actioned, monitored and reported on all activities including jobs, apprenticeships, placements and curriculum support activities in local schools.
We worked hard with the supply chain to meet the challenging target of 23
By developing a specific programme of working with the local schools, we exceeded our target of 7
By closely co-ordinating demand from schools and JBG with opportunities on site, we exceeded the target of 20
With our involvement, the communications between all parties became very strong and community benefit targets were exceeded. In addition, the on-site team were allowed to focus entirely on delivery of the project – which ultimately came in early and under budget.
What they said
