Peter Casey Scholarship recipients 2017This month, we welcomed two new students at Salford University School of the Built Environment to the Peter Casey Scholarship family.

 At the end of their first academic year, a student from the school is chosen on merit to receive the award. Every fourth year, gift aid allows two students to receive the award and this year's recipients were Camille Grimes, studying Quantity Surveying, and Stephen Hellewell, studying Construction Project Management.

This scholarship programme is now in its fourth year and Peter is very proud of the success of all the recipients so far. Stuart Hartley (Quantity Surveying) and John Kelso (Construction Project Management) both graduated with 1st Class Honours, and Stuart Lally (Construction Project Management) is now in his final year.

Peter Casey said this about why he set up the scholarship: "I remember, many years ago now, how difficult it was trying to study and make ends meet. I'm very happy to be able to help the up-and-coming constructors of today by taking some of that pressure away, and I am extremely proud of their achievements so far. I wish the very best of luck to this year's recipients, Camille and Stephen."

OverheadThe Casey Group Limited and Land Owner Barnfield Hughes have signed a development agreement to bring forward a 16 - acre brownfield site in Leek for mixed use development.  A former concrete batching plant which is no longer operational, the site on Sunnyhills Road already benefits from an outline planning consent. This includes significant redevelopment for 175 new residential units, and employment and tourism uses, including proposals for a new canal basin.

The Development team, which includes Roger Hannah & Co representing Barnfield Hughes, have already met with Staffordshire Moorlands District Council to discuss how this site can be brought forward in phases; and survey work and site investigation is now underway.

A detailed planning application is due to be submitted in late autumn for the first phase which will consist of 60 residential units with a total value of £10-12 million.

Bredbury Curve VisualThe Casey Group have begun work on site in Bredbury to construct 60 new homes for Viaduct Housing Partnership.

The project at Stockport Road East is a joint venture between Casey and Viaduct. It will consist of 60 houses and apartments that will be available for shared ownership sale or affordable rent (through social housing provider, Stockport Homes).

Councillor Sheila Bailey, Cabinet Member for Communities and Housing, Stockport Council, explained the purpose of Viaduct:

"The purpose of setting up Viaduct Housing Partnership was to build as many affordable homes in Stockport as possible.  I am delighted that this new development between Casey and Viaduct will see 48 houses and 12 apartments built for shared ownership or affordable rent.  I hope that between the Council and Stockport Homes we can give as many people as possible an opportunity to live in Stockport".

Chris Casey, Managing Director at Casey, said: “This joint venture between Viaduct and Casey brings much needed affordable housing to Greater Manchester. We are delighted to be involved in this partnership with Stockport Homes and look forward to delivering this innovative project”

 

RWRP AmbassadorWe are pleased to announce that we have become an Ambassador for the Right Waste, Right Place programme.

As a company involved in environmental management, we can use the tools available in this programme to educate our customers on their duty of care.

Duty of Care applies to any establishment or business that produces, transports, treats or disposes of waste as a result of its activities. In practice this means EVERY establishment or business in the UK, from the very large to the very small.

The Environmental Protection Act 1991 requires every business or establishment to take responsibility to ensure their waste is properly disposed of.

Your Duty of Care starts from the moment you produce the waste and may also continue beyond the appropriately authorised waste contractor you engage to deal with it. You need to satisfy yourself that not only have you managed the waste you produce correctly on your site, but also that the person that it is given to next is permitted to deal with it and that it will be handled correctly.
