Posted: 19/09/2016

The team at Higgin Construction’s Gabriel Square site are going above the call of duty and spending their spare time raising money for charities including Trussell Trust and Macmillan.

Recently document controller, Sunny Markova completed a sponsored 10k run, raising over £1,150 for Trussell Trust. On September 24th David Martin, Brian Long and Mark Board from Higgins Construction, along with Alistair Wardle and Stuart Syddell of Stace will be taking part in the London South Tough Mudder, as the team ‘The Hero Pieces’, also for Trussell Trust. The team hope to raise £2,500.

Victoria Betts, site manager for Higgins Construction at Gabriel Square said, “Higgins Construction is extremely committed to working with the community around each of its projects and at Gabriel Square, we have been particularly focused on helping local and national charities. We are delighted to have been able to help Trussell Trust through the various fundraising activities.”

Tough Mudder is an international assault course designed by the Special Forces with the intent of pushing participants’ fitness levels further than ever expected.

The Gabriel Square team will also be supporting The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 30th September in aid of Macmillan and encouraging the team to get put their ‘British Bake Off’ skills to the test.

The Trussell Trust runs a network of over 400 foodbanks, giving emergency food and support to people in crisis across the UK, where thirteen million people live below the poverty line. In the last year the charity gave 1,109,309 three-day emergency food supplies to people in crisis.

Gabriel Square on London Road in St. Albans includes the design and construction of 80 residential homes and apartments around a raised central courtyard, with parking below and a public square and garden above. The homes will include 52 townhouses ranging from three to five bedrooms, 16 two and three bedroom maisonettes and 12 one and two bedroom apartments.

The existing site is a bowl shape, requiring excavation to regularize the lower ground floor but allowing near-level pedestrian access across the garden, from all sides. The development also includes works to part demolish and rebuild one family home at 25H Alma Road.
