How we made a difference
Due to the sensitivity of the site’s location and close proximity to residential blocks and care home, 777 adopted a rigorous stakeholder consultation methodology.
777 appreciated the particular constraints of the site and appointed a Residents’ Liaison Officer to regularly update information on a micro portal website, which was accessible by the local residents, as well as conducting regular ( weekly ) coordination meetings with stakeholders to air issues regarding the project.
All project programs were published and issued to stakeholders with comments and suggestions acted upon.
Specific attention was paid to the rear ( western ) edge of the site, with additional hoarding and supervision in place to guard against potential falling debris, due to actively utilised school children's playground.
