Benefiting the community

Supporting and revitalising communities.

Springfield Partnerships have a strong track record of taking unsightly, and often unsafe, brownfield site and turning them into a welcoming, attractive residential area complete with a real sense of place and community.

From the earliest stages Springfield work with Local Authorities, key agencies and consultants promoting an integrated approach – handling demolition, carrying out sensitive ecological works and removal of materials in preparing the site for construction.

With a broad house mix, we can cater for all ages and stages, promoting a sustainable community.  Residents contribute to, and benefit from, wider regeneration with re-established and enhanced links within the community supporting local businesses and infrastructure.

Supporting local jobs and developing skills.

With all Springfield developments, labour is sourced locally.

At Springfield 20% of employees are apprentices or in further education and training. Where possible we teamed up with local colleges to opening up training opportunities and increasing skill levels in the area. We’re committed to supporting our apprentices, helping hard working young people learn the skills they need for a successful career in housebuilding. By hiring apprentices, we are helping them develop skills, offering them a career, while ensuring skilled tradesmen for the future of house building.

A success story is 17-year-old Cameron. He joined Springfield  as an apprentice bricklayer through the Wheatley Pledge – a scheme introduced to give career opportunities to Wheatley Group tenants.
