CommunitiesOnline is a unique web-based approach to community relations during construction. It enables us to provide a community relations service which takes the day-to-day responsibility for local resident communication off the shoulders of the contractor, in a way that is time (and therefore cost) efficient.
Costing as little as £100 per month, our websites are a great way to communicate positive and interesting information about the scheme – such as information about sustainable features, time lapse photography and information on timing. You might also wish to include information about your company’s apprentice scheme, your commitment to using local workers or your charitable / community work.
Very importantly, in-built databases enable us to collate contact information for (and communicate with) residents who want to receive regular updates on the progress on site and those who are interested in buying or letting a property.
Starting work on site is a great time to make contact with the local community, gain their support and put in place an efficient method of ongoing communication.
If you’d like to discuss the service please contact us. There’s also more information about CommunitiesOnline in our blog and you might be interested to read comment on the subject of community relations by Penny Norton in Construction Manager, Facilities Management, Housebuilder & Developer and Building4Education. The forthcoming book Communicating Construction: insight, experience and best practice also includes a section on community relations by Penny Norton.
