At the end of 2020, the government launched the Social Value Model for procurement to promote new jobs and skills, encourage economic growth and prosperity, tackle climate change and ‘level up’ the UK.

Infrastructure projects have long supported local communities, the challenge is formalising the process to plan, execute and record the added social value. On the A46 working with National Highways we are taking a systematic approach using Thrive and in the first 8 months on site we have achieved:

  • 5% Social Value Added
  • 5 Local People Employed
  • 3 New Apprentices
  • £1,800 equivalent supporting local community
  • £3,800 equivalent supporting the environment
