Mental Health Awareness Week

As part of Mental Health Awareness Week (10th-16th May), and in conjunction with us becoming a supporter of the mental health charity ‘Mates in Mind’, we have invited our employees to take part in various activities to improve their mental health.

The theme of this year’s awareness week is #Nature. Following the pandemic and the various lockdowns, it has been apparent that going outside and getting some fresh air has a vast impact on the mental health and well-being of individuals. We therefore encouraged our employees to step outside over the weekend, whether that meant taking a walk in the park, sitting outside in the garden or visiting their favorite nature spot. We simply wanted everyone to #connectwithnature. We were delighted that many of the employees participated and sent in photos for us to share!

Mates in Mind

We are delighted to announce that Niblock are joining up with Mates in Mind in order to raise awareness, address the stigma of poor mental health and improve positive mental wellbeing among our workforce and the wider construction industry. Mates in Mind is being delivered in support of the Health in Construction Leadership Group and in partnership with The British Safety Council and Mental Health First Aid (MHFA).

As a Supporter of Mates in Mind, we gain access to support and communication materials, as well as a range of awareness and training programmes – helping us to take a joined-up approach to improving mental health & wellbeing. We are focused on better understanding the needs of our employees, whilst ensuring immediately that all our staff have access to trained and qualified counsellors. We recognise that the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns have had a vast impact on everyone, and now more than ever we need access to the correct support channels.

We will also be taking part in national events, starting today with National Mental Health Awareness Week (10th-14th May)! 


We are pleased to announce that we have been appointed on the Fusion21 Building Safety and Compliance Framework Lot 11, Electrical Testing & Electrical Works. 
The framework is open for public sector organisations to use including those in housing, local authorities, blue light, central government, education and health.
The scope of the framework covers surveys, planned and responsive maintenance, installation and upgrades. 
Phil Woodhead MCIPS, CIWFM, Category Manager at Fusion21 commented, “We are delighted to welcome all of the new suppliers onto the framework, including Niblock Building Contractors.
The tender process was highly competitive and the process has identified the best contractors for our members to use.”
“A further, real benefit to our members and their communities is the social value delivery that is aligned to organisational priorities and can be monitored and reported against for all call offs.”

Waverley Borough Council

Niblock was proud to join together with other local businesses to help Waverley Borough Council renovate a property to create a home for three of their residents who had been under the care of mental health providers. 

We were pleased to install a new patio at the rear of the property, along with new secure fencing and landscaping to enhance the outdoor facilities and provide a welcoming area for the residents to enjoy in the spring and summer months. To the front of the property, the driveway was tarmacked and landscaping carried out, improving both the appearance and usability of the house. 

We very much hope that the tenants will enjoy their new home and that it will help them as they move forward in this new chapter of their lives.

Nonsuch High School for Girls

Niblock have proudly completed the fast track fit out of the recently built ground floor open space of Nonsuch High School for Girls in Sutton, SM3, which required new classrooms and a sixth form study to expand upon the pre-existing learning facilities within the school. The works have resulted in a bright and modern working space for the students.

Following the announcement that Poplar Works was runner up for the Constructing Excellence SECBE Awards 2020, Building Project of the Year under £10m, we are delighted to hear it is now Winner of the Pineapple Award for Contribution to Place and Winner of the New London Award Working Category!

SEC 2020 Conference

The SEC 2020 annual conference went ahead virtually yesterday with great success, focusing on the resilience of the construction sector after such a challenging and unpredictable year. Industry leaders spoke in depth both about the difficulties we face and also future opportunities, providing an excellent space for those in our sector to reflect on the last year and find ways to strive forward in 2021.


Having annually attended Optivo’s Charity Supporting Golf Days in the past, with that not being possible this year Niblock Building Contractors are pleased to contribute to Fresh Vision’s Domestic Abuse Counselling Service. 

Thrive is a unique domestic abuse counselling service, that is responsive to the individual needs of all domestic abuse survivors – adults, children and young people.

Experiencing or witnessing domestic abuse often leads to a child being traumatised, requiring specialist intervention.

In refuges and community settings across Kent they provide specialist support by highly trained and experienced Counsellors.
