April saw the award of the first Peter Casey Scholarship at the University of Salford’s School of the Built Environment (SOBE).
The recipient of the scholarship, awarded on merit, was Stuart Hartley who is in his first year at Salford, studying Quantity Surveying. Stuart will receive £1000 per annum for the 3 years of his studies.
“I was overwhelmed to receive my notification letter and am delighted to have been selectedas this year’s recipient,” said Stuart. “It is an absolute honour to be recognised for my work this year and it motivates me to continue to strive for excellence. The scholarship will not only enable me to concentrate on my studies, but also provide the financial security to invest more time to causes that I hold dear such as raising money for landmine clearing charity, MAG International.”

Staff at Casey were delighted to move into their new "deep green" office block at head office in Rochdale. Designs by Taylor Young for the new low-energy building were approved by Rochdale planners in 2009. The building of a pair of two storey linked office blocks took 12 months, while staff continued to work in the original premises on what is now the car park.
Sustainability has been central to this new design which is six per cent better than the required green standards for a naturally ventilated building. The low-energy potential of the building is the result of a 'passive' building design combined with energy efficient building systems and services. There is a sedum planted roof which will help save heat in the winter, keep the building cool in the summer, and look in sympathy with the surrounding countryside.
Based on the successful Multifarmer, the original Multi-Tool offers all the performance of a 3 tonne capacity telehandler, combined with the features of a 120HP tractor. The big secret of its success is the ability to operate in two distinct modes, distinguished by which of the two axles is locked into position.
New Holland Construction has released a host of new models. With lots of new features as well as the SCR technology to achieve Tier IV compliance, the new models deliver low emissions with high power and fuel efficiency.
