We’re so proud to see our apprentices learning and developing their skills. We believe the benefits of an apprenticeship are incomparable, here are 5 reasons why apprenticeships are a great way to kick start your career: 

  • Earn while you learn 
  • Gain the skills employers want 
  • Avoid student loans 
  • Become an essential part of the team 
  • Build your professional network 

In the construction sector we are constantly looking at lessons learnt and innovating. It’s no secret that construction is often seen as an industry behind the curve when it comes to digitisation.

Carpentry is a traditional trade and people often think that technology gets left behind, but with the pandemic we have all learnt to adapt and work smarter not harder. This isn’t just about having battery powered tools; it’s about using IT to stay connected safely and using cloud-based solutions so we can work together with the same information, for better project decision making.

We are pleased to announce we’ve won the contract for Orbit Homes 230 units in Hellingly. Resting just on the edge of historic Hailsham sits The Hedgerows at Hellingly Green, Orbit Homes’ wonderful new collection of houses, a selection of two, three, four and five bedroom houses.

With a mixture of private sale and HA units we’re excited to get started on these traditionally built, new build homes, with joist roofs, cladding and timber porches.

Feedback from our contractors show that COVID-safe sites are slower, but better.

Our foreman’s have been reporting back to us demonstrating the quality and productivity benefits from the industry’s adaption to the coronavirus. Benefits include proactive sequencing and less overlaps between subcontractors, which has in turn increased workflow and standard. Another noticeable benefit is increased tidiness, a key factor in maintaining good relationships on site with management, and Health & Safety.

During this time Hammerwood is continuing to review and adapt to ensure positive changes are captured and embedded.

We have welcomed two new apprentices to the Hammerwood workforce!

Luke Jennings & Louis Brassett have joined us this September and will be attending Crawley college for a Level 2 – Carpentry & Joinery Apprenticeship.

Congratulations to the site team at St Modwen Heathywood, Copthorne. Not only have they been awarded subcontractor of the month for August 2020, but they have held it continuously since June 2020.
