Mount Anvil in the Community

As with all our developments in London, we are passionate about developing strong, mutually-beneficial relationships with the local community here in Hampstead. Building and strengthening those relationships by holding ourselves to the highest standards of the Considerate Constructors Scheme, offering local companies the chance to tender for contracts on site and advertising vacancies and apprenticeship opportunities locally is all part of our commitment to leaving a positive legacy in Hampstead.

Read on for more information on how Mount Anvil is working in and with your community.

 

Community Meetings & Events

Keeping you abreast of developments on site—particularly any that directly impact you or the local area—is absolutely key. We know you will have specific questions, so we’ll be holding community drop-in sessions throughout the duration of the project to ensure that you always have the opportunity to speak to us directly.

  • Register now to receive notifications and alerts for our community drop-in sessions.
  • We hold regular invite-only Community Working Group meetings. Minutes of previous meetings are available for download in our documents area.

Apprenticeship & Work Schemes

Mount Anvil will be working with Kings Cross Construction Skills Centre (KXCSC), Camden's flagship skills centre, to provide apprenticeships on site at Hampstead Manor. KXCSC will be recruiting for these apprenticeships from within the borough. All main subcontractors working on site will also be contractually obliged to recruit apprentices through KXCSC.

Other apprenticeship and work initiatives currently under development at Hampstead Manor include:

  • Plans for National Apprenticeship Week, including hosting workshops and encouraging subcontractors to offer innovative new apprenticeships.
  • Offering work experience placements to local schools in Hampstead and the wider community.
  • Holding workshops at local schools, and encouraging pupils to visit site to learn about both Health and Safety in construction, and the industry more generally.

Mount Anvil Giving Back

One of our key commitments is to create genuine relationships and to share our success with the communities that we live and work in. We work with local charities and interest groups at each of our developments, donating time, expertise and money to help them make a real difference to the local community. It’s part of our legacy in London.

Between 2010 and 2014 we donated more than £500,000 to good causes in the capital. By the end of 2016 it will be £1m.

We also work alongside local communities in order to ensure that all voices are heard and that our time working in the area is a positive one for all parties.

Current initiatives in Hampstead include:

  • A full-time Community Liaison Officer and a Community Working Group ensuring that we actively listen to and work with local people. We are committed to being a good neighbour during construction and to creating a dialogue with local residents through regular community drop-ins and newsletters.
  • A partnership with Kings Cross Construction Skills Centre (KXCSC) to employ local apprentices and people to work on site. Visit the jobs and apprenticeships page for all current vacancies.
  • The creation of public art for the site through partnerships with local schools and the Hampstead School of Art.
  • The contribution of approximately £5 million towards local infrastructure projects to improve education, transport and public services in the area.

We are looking for small local charities that provide valuable services to the local community to partner with and support. If you would like to nominate a charity please get in touch via CommunityLiaison@mountanvil.com. Closing date to submit nominations will be Friday 29th July 2016.

BIODIVERSITY & ENVIRONMENT

Mount Anvil is committed to safeguarding and enhancing the environments that we work in. We will constantly be monitoring and minimising the environmental impact of work at Hampstead Manor. A programme of landscaping and improving biodiversity across the site will contribute greatly to the ecology of the conservation area.

Works will include:

  • Investing in leading-edge monitoring and pollution reduction technology equipment where possible.
  • Regular air quality assessments.
  • The introduction of new native tree species across the site, a new pond, roosting areas for bats and birds, and green roofing across new pavilions.
  • The creation, enhancement and upkeep of beautiful green spaces that will be available for use by the community once completed.
