Construction partners support carers with PPE
"Working with Willmott Dixon on a major project like Springfields has created a strong bond between us."
Jo Grainger, Executive Director
Frontline carers at nursing homes run by emh care & support will benefit from a donation of 500 face masks from construction partners Willmott Dixon.
The first batch of 100 3D-printed masks were delivered to Meadowview nursing home in Chesterfield by David Rowell, Construction Manager at Willmott Dixon.
Over the last few months the partners have been collaborating on a £12.5m development of 65 supported living apartments in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire. In the heart of the National Forest, Springfields will be a modern and vibrant community supporting and promoting health and wellbeing.
Joanna Grainger, Executive Director of emh care & support, said: “Working together on a major project like Springfields has created a strong bond between ourselves and Willmott Dixon. We were therefore delighted when David got in touch offering to help with the masks. We cannot thank them enough.”
David Rowell said: “Some of our digital construction team have been 3D printing face masks due to the shortage of PPE during the pandemic. Working with Jo and her team on Springfields, I thought I would ask whether they needed any for their frontline carers.
“After many hours of printing we delivered the first 100 face masks and our teams are well on track with printing another 400.”
