Community Impact

Promoting social, economic and environmental sustainability is central to how we deliver our services. We don't just turn up with our machinery, get the job done and leave; every aspect of what we do is carefully thought through to ensure we do things responsibly, such as our aspiration to significantly reduce our waste to landfill and reduce our carbon footprint by 30%.

On a team and individual scale, our employees take advantage of the two paid days a year they can use to undertake volunteering activities. From skydives and boxing matches, to the more sedate tea parties and dress down days, our wonderful employees take it upon themselves to raise thousands of pounds and donate their time for worthy causes throughout the year.

Fisher's Green Clearance Project

Volunteers from the Cheshunt office took part in a clearance project at Fisher's Green Park. They were provided with a variety of equipment, and they used different techniques and methods to clear the forest area along the driveway entrance of the park.

Skydive for The Alzheimer's Society

Thirteen employees from across Contracting South & Surfacing completed a 15,000ft jump, which is the highest altitude allowed in the UK.

All thirteen members of the Eurovia team experienced almost one minute of freefall time, diving through the air at 125mph, followed by five minutes of parachuting safely back to earth!

In total over £10,300 was raised for the The Alzheimer's Society.

RHS Bridgewater Scheme

As part of Eurovia Contracting North's ongoing commitments to supporting and improving local communities, the RHS Bridgewater team completed 96 hours of volunteering to improve public accessibility in Worsley Woods.

Working in partnership with Salford Council, Salford Wildlife and Worsley Woods, the team removed and replaced 36 existing sleeper steps and cleared an invasive species of Rhododendron, making space for new tree planting.

Raising dementia awareness

Site workers in Derby have been coached in the changes they can make on public realm works to help pedestrians living with dementia. Promoted by the The Alzheimer's Society, this aims to change people's perceptions of dementia.
