BCCEC Founders Day
16th May 2011 @ 8.00am
West Bromwich, B70 0AJ
Each year we mark
the anniversary of the club's founding (April 2007) by undertaking a
community project to which local construction companies contribute
funds, labour, materials, etc. For those of you who feel "too small"
to do this alone but would love to be able to publicise doing
something in the community in your PQQ and Tender responses the
Club's event provides you with just such an opportunity - last year
around 20 companies, mainly Micro and Small SMEs did some fantastic
home conversion work for a disabled lad in Walsall.
Our projects are always work which the organisation cannot afford to
undertake and would otherwise not be realised - we do not compete
with local construction companies who would get this work otherwise.
This year we are undertaking work for the Chapter House centre in
West Bromwich which provide a Accommodation for vulnerable young
adults aged 18 plus - Chapter House
provides them with the stability of somewhere to live so that they
can focus effort on gaining employment. The centre encourages
involvement with the local community as well and part of our project
will be to provide them with a multi-purpose workshop where they can
hold joint training events with local residents.
There are 3 aspects to our community project which you may be able
to help us with:
A new multi-purpose
workshop in the grounds (actually the relocation of an existing
building from Birmingham)
Decorating some of
the accommodation units (and showing residents how to do this for
themselves so that they can finish the whole place themselves if
there is enough material)
Phase 1 will be the preparation of the base for the workshop and internal
decorations in the administration offices and accommodation units. Phase
2 will be dismantling the existing workshop, transporting it to West
Bromwich, erecting it, connecting to electrical services and internal
If you want to support this project, or be part of doing it, we would
