Public brave the cold to visit Lovell construction sites during Open Doors week

9th, April

Open days held at five Lovell construction sites across London and Surrey in March were warmly welcomed by members of the public, despite the arctic conditions.

Open Doors at Middlemead, Great Bookham, where Lovell is building 79 new homes in partnership with Clarion Housing Group.

The visits were organised as part of the annual nationwide initiative Open Doors, where developers open their construction sites to the community to give an insight into their work and highlight the exciting career opportunities in the construction industry.

Among the sites to open its doors was Trinity Walk in Woolwich, where Lovell is transforming an ageing estate into a thriving new community of more than 650 new homes.  A visitor to the site commented:

Open Doors at The Electric Quarter, Enfield, where Lovell is creating 167 new homes, commercial and retail space and a new library.

“I was very impressed with the organisation and coordination of the Woolwich site. I would even go as far to say it’s run with military precision. The presentation and preparation by Lovell was excellent. It was obvious they are passionate about what they do.”

Other events were held at The Electric Quarter in Enfield; Dover Court in Islington; Sherwood Close in West Ealing and Middlemead in Great Bookham, Surrey.

Sophie Bruce, Regional Training Advisor at Lovell, comments: “We were very pleased to see so many people enjoying these open days. We welcome opportunities to show local people how our projects are progressing and are equally passionate about promoting our industry and the great range of careers on offer.”
