Islington Residents Meet the Contractor
Residents from the Redbrick Estate in Islington were recently invited to meet the Osborne team who will deliver the estate’s improvement works. Identified by Islington Council as an area for infill development the project will provide additional housing, upgraded community facilities and new landscaping works by October 2019.
The event was held to encourage the community to ask questions to both the team and Newman Francis, a community development organisation with whom we are collaborating. The residents were also shown phasing and site logistic plans and example methods of communication. By establishing familiarity and openness from the outset of a project we can prepare and support the residents through the works ahead.
Matt Coleman, Osborne’s Project Manager said; “It’s fundamentally important that we engage with the local community and share our plans with them. We will be on site for over two years and will be a focal point in their community. It is critical that we build an early bond with all stakeholders as well as residents to ensure we deliver a fantastic project. Their views count and are an important contribution to the success of our project delivery.”
