This October I worked on an annual event for Velfac in the UK. When I was working with Unique Solutions in 2009 the company decided to undertake a community based project as a way of building the team. I lined them up with a special school in Nottingham who had a backlog of works in the grounds and some grand plans which would never see the light of day without outside assistance.
65 Velfac employees; 4.5 hours of activity; 290+ man hours
Team tasks included:
- building an outdoor classroom area
- relocating a greenhouse
- titivating the horticultural area
- installing industrial racking in the school store
- mending fences
- building outdoor seating
- installing a tool store
- renovating a sensory garden
This year Velfac partnered with another school in Nottinghamshire to install a trim trail, renovate fencing and gardens, seating area and more… Another successful team event with a real beneficiary.
