We are delighted to hear today’s local news that the much-loved conker tree located near our head office has been saved!
A new Medical Centre is coming to River Lawn Road in Tonbridge, and a magnificent Horse Chestnut tree cherished by our local community was supposed to be cut down as a part of the pre-construction works.
Being proud local community members, our office team has supported the petition for saving the tree, which even got TV coverage and substantial local support. Following the petition, the developer has made some minor alterations to their scheme, and the tree has been saved. This is a massive victory for the local community, a step in the right direction for construction companies and local communities to work together and an excellent example of sustainability in the construction industry.
Trees and green spaces contribute positively to physical and mental wellbeing, but they are also vital to the improvement of the environment. Considering the environmental impact should be on top of our list when we are looking into the improvement of our project planning and sustainability.
