VINCI Facilities develops social value beyond the legal requirements, delivering longlasting added value in economic, social and environmental areas by listening to our stakeholders needs.
Social value connects communities with the facilities they live and work, improving social cohesion and reducing inequalities and friction between all stakeholders.
By engaging key stakeholders early, we successfully mitigate concerns and maximise opportunities to generate social value collaboratively with the whole value chain.
Our industry-leading Social Value Framework, compatible with PPN 06/20, collects information across our operations, allowing us to share best practice and robustly report using a range of financial proxies most suitable to our activities. This is continually updated and managed by our expert social sustainability manager, who is an accredited practitioner with Social Value International.
Our impact on communities is as relevant on one site as it is nationally. We remain sensitive to local needs by appointing regional social value champions, whilst supporting charities and community organisations with direct grant funding through the VINCI UK Foundation.
Reading From The Start, our bespoke project developed with our customer Peabody Housing Association and local charities, encourages children from deprived areas to improve their literacy and has continued for 6 years, demonstrating the longevity of our social value delivery.
VINCI Facilities has played an integral role in the success of this ground-breaking facility. This includes providing technical project management services during the three-year development and construction phase, and ongoing FM solutions now that the facility is operational.
The contract sees the majority of FM works self-delivered by a directly-employed team in order to maximise levels of control, quality and reliability.
This team work as a cohesive unit with the council, operating a ‘one team’ approach. So successful is the collaboration that the partnership received the One Team award at the Government Property Awards.
Keen to drive continuous improvement, contract personnel are trained in Lean methodologies and have held ‘Lessons Learnt’ sessions with key stakeholders to capture and showcase key learnings from the contract.
