Dementia Friends

Today is World Alzheimer’s Day.

We are committed to furthering our knowledge about dementia awareness and are rolling out a programme via the Alzheimer’s Society to train employees across Niblock Builders and Niblock Electrical Services to better understand the impact of dementia on those living with the condition.
Today, three employees have already undergone the training and have become Dementia Friends!

Southwood Court

Following our recent completion of the External Repairs and Renovations at Southwood Court we are pleased to have received excellent feedback from the Contracts Administrator, Robert Martell, and as a thank you to the Residents held an Open Day with light refreshments.

“Niblock were contractors for the external refurbishment and renovation of windows, brickwork and roofing for a listed estate in Hampstead.

From the outset, Niblock were brilliant in liaising with residents regarding their H&S policies and the method statements associated with the carrying out of the works. Throughout the 7 month contract Niblock maintained a safe site with no incidents reported.

Niblock were proactive in addressing ongoing design, scope and costs issues with regular cost updates throughout the project. Every month Niblock prepared an updated programme that was appropriately adapted to accommodate additional works and essential variations. Niblock achieved the agreed Practical Completion date of 31st August and provided a project of excellent quality which more that satisfied Hampstead Gardens Suburbs Trust and left happy tenants enjoying their new surroundings.
An exceptional management team and group of Subcontractors.

I have no hesitation in commending Niblock to private landlords and social landlord clients for renovation and refurbishment projects.” Robert Martell

World Mental Health Day

This year, we joined up with Mates in Mind Mental Health Charity with the aim of improving positive mental wellbeing amongst our employees and more widely to address the stigma of poor mental health within the construction industry. 

To coincide with #WMHD on Sunday 10th October 2021, we have today issued a Wellbeing Pulse Survey to all employees to help us better understand the needs of our employees and to further improve our mental health support resources within Niblock.

We hope that other organisations will join us in checking in on their employees and take part in this interantional awareness event.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

Today we are supporting Macmillan Cancer Support and their efforts to help those affected by Cancer with our #macmillancoffeemorning and bake off!
With a variety of delicious goods baked by our own employees for sale, we are helping to raise money for a very important cause.
Thank you to all our staff for getting involved for the sixth year running!

SEC Marketing Committee

Our Business Development Executive, Katie Stallard has recently been appointed to form part of the first SEC Marketing Committee. 

Katie is one of ten people appointed from across the SEC’s Framework Service providers, each with professional experience that together will bring unique and important perspective to the group. 

The aim of the committee is to work together to raise the profile of SEC Frameworks in new and imaginative ways. The group isn’t framework specific and is looking forward to coming together to share creative ideas.

The first meeting is today, where the group objectives will be set and they will begin looking at the groups direction for the future.

Creating Hope Through Action

To help raise awareness for World Suicide Prevention Day on 10th September 2021, we invited the Niblock team to light a candle and show their support. We are pleased to share some of the images sent in.

According to the Chartered Institute of Building, up to 26% of construction industry professionals thought about taking their life in 2019. These statistics need to change.

We recently joined up with Mates in Mind Mental Health Charity to improve positive mental wellbeing among our workforce and the wider construction industry.

It is important that we all work together to break down the stigma of poor mental health.

Fire Damage Reinstatement in Lewisham

Following a large fire at a detached house converted into flats in Lingards Road, Lewisham, the property was left with significant damage in April 2020. The roof was destroyed and much of the first floor damaged. We are currently carrying out a full internal strip out to reinstate the property for Lewisham Homes, with Murrary Birrell acting as Principal Designer and Contract Administrator. 

Niblock Deliver Enhanced Customer Experience

We were pleased to have worked alongside Murray Birrell to complete flat conversion and refurbishment works to create 2no. self-contained affordable flats at 23 Eliot Park in a conservation area on behalf of Lewisham Homes

Following completion, we were delighted to receive excellent feedback from our Clients:

“Niblock and Murray Birrell did an excellent job in carrying out remodelling and renovation works to one our period properties in Eliot Park. The property has been refurbished to a very high standard to provide two much needed social homes that I’m sure the new tenants will love.”
Mark Newstead – Director of Property Services & Safety

“Lewisham Homes have completed a refurbishment of one of LBL’s properties in Eliot Park. The property has been converted into a four bed maisonette and a two bedroom flat from a previous multi occupation property. The refurbishment has been sympathetically completed in a conservation area to a high quality standard in partnership Lewisham Homes, Niblock and Murray Birrell. We are very proud of the work done to complete and bring back into stock two lovely homes for two families.”
Jon Kanareck – Director of Resident Services

Tools Down Tea Break

As part of Mental Health Awareness Week, we have encouraged our employees to take part in various activities during the week to help break the stigma surrounding mental health. Today, we invited everyone to take part in a ‘Tools Down Tea Break’ to start a conversation with their colleagues about how they are feeling. Talking openly with others helps to dispel misconceptions about mental health problems and the people who experience them.
