Morgan Sindall has teamed up with the local community in Islington to create 15 wildlife boxes, including bird and bat houses and bug hotels, to brighten up the surrounding area.

The firm is currently delivering an £8.5 million refurbishment to the main entrance at City University in Islington and used recycled timber from the site to create the habitat boxes. Two of the habitat boxes will be donated to St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School and will be displayed in the school grounds while the rest will be donated to Islington Council to be placed across the Borough for the surrounding community to enjoy.

The wildlife boxes have been created as part of Morgan Sindall’s commitment to sustainable best practice and protecting the local environment. Children from Dania School, a Scandinavian school based at 3 Corners Trust, decorated the boxes which will be used to replace the existing habitat boxes in the area.

Richard Dobson, Morgan Sindall’s area director in London, said: “We’re so pleased to be working closely with the local community in Islington to protect the wildlife across the Borough.

“Environmental awareness is a core component of our culture and touches every aspect of what we do both internally and externally.

“This project is just one example of Morgan Sindall’s commitment to engage, inspire and educate the next generation and it has been wonderful to see so much enthusiasm from the children in the local community in Islington.”
