During the Trigot Court contract Termrim employed over 30 members of staff and trades on site and at their Head Offices in Huddersfield, with approximately 80% living within a 10-mile radius of the site. They also used a wide range of local suppliers and businesses, promoting strong economic regeneration through the construction process.

As part of the Framework’s Social Value requirements Termrim provided training opportunities for an apprentice Jordi Simpson (pictured below).

Jordi had the following comment to make regarding his experience with the Contractor:

‘I’ve been working as an apprentice at Termrim Construction since November last year and since then I have already gained valuable work experience. I’ve been able to work alongside both the Site Manager and the Site Foreman and have been involved in all aspects of the job, including finishing, painting and plastering. I have also spent time working with the Maintenance Manager at Termrim on various contracts carrying out Maintenance works in occupied properties.   My apprenticeship at Termrim is allowing me to gain the knowledge and skills that I will need to further my career in the building industry’.

EN:Procure’s Social Value Manager Paul Mitchell engaged early with Termrim to understand their requirements for the scheme and undertook the recruitment, sourcing Jordi and other suitable candidates for the role.  Paul said ‘We’re exceptionally pleased with the way that Jordi settled on the scheme under the tutelage of Termrim and their skilled employees.  We provided him with a bespoke toolkit, access to our Health and Wellbeing programme and he was supported by our Social Value Advisor and the CITB’.

The Client also had the following comment to make about the project and about Termrim:

‘WDH have completed a 20 unit new build scheme with Termrim Construction at Trigot Court, South Kirby. The site has been delivered on time and to an excellent standard. Selection of the Contractor was aided by Efficiency North who made the whole process not only easy but compliant with current procurement regulations’
