Casey has been awarded two new social housing contracts with Six Town Housing, taking its property refurbishment total to 2000 as part of a £15.8 million neighbourhood project, funded by Bury Council.

Casey, which has worked with Six Town Housing since 2008 and has completed 1,692 house refurbishments to date, will contract 45 per cent of its workforce from Bury, including ten NVQ placements, to deliver the next phase of the project to deliver 454 homes across Trinity Green and Heath Avenue residential estates.

These new works involve kitchen, bathroom and heating installations at the houses on instruction of Six Town Housing, an Arms Length Management Organisation (ALMO) that delivers neighbourhood services to approximately 8000 homes across Bury on behalf of Bury Council.

NICK7518Casey were delighted to take part in the TeenTech South Yorkshire event last week.

TeenTech brings teenagers together with companies who are leading the way in innovation, and scientific and technological research, with the intention of showing that there are plenty of career paths available that they might not at first think about.

Casey were involved in facilitating a challenge designed by Efficiency North that aimed to test the thought processes and problem solving ability in pre-GCSE students in a 'Crystal Maze' type challenge. The environment was created to resemble a construction site, with PPE and small tools on show to add to the realism. The students were tasked with answering 4 questions across each of the following areas: science, technology, engineering and maths. The questions linked their study with real life, at the same time giving the students an insight into potential careers in the construction sector.
