Optimum in collaboration with main contractor Galliford Try today handed over a container home for Bristol based charity Help Bristol’s Homeless. This 2-month project culminating in todays handover ceremony.

Help Bristol’s Homeless is a registered charity with a mission to change the face of homelessness in Bristol. Their vision is to develop a site of ten containers, converted into self-contained studio flats, providing temporary accommodation until a service user can find a more permanent home. Their ethos is that housing must come first, and then everything else comes after.

Optimum provide a range of services and support including drywall partitioning, painting, flooring and general help!

Chris Fitzpatrick who by day, heads up Optimum’s Fire Stopping Division was instrumental in driving the project to completion and would like to extend his thanks to SIG, Woodstock, Johnstones St Philips and the Colour Centre Bristol for their kind donations of materials, as well as his Optimum colleagues for their support.

Optimum Managing Director Simon Britton commented ‘we are proud to support projects like these in our own city, where homelessness is a growing issue on our streets, Jasper and the team are doing an exceptional job’

Mental Health Awareness Campaign

Mental health issues are surprisingly common – ‘as common as asthma’ to quote Frank Dobson (a former Secretary of State for Health). It is estimated that 1 in 4 of us will be diagnosed with some form of mental health problem at some point in our lives.

This week we have launched an internal campaign to raise awareness of mental health issues across our business.

The charity Mind have some excellent reference information on their website, including this poster that we’ve have asked our site-teams to display in prominent areas, as well as putting them up in our head office of course.
