Velfac

Using Community projects for teambuildingThis 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
