We recognise the importance of our responsibilities in areas such as the environment and health and safety, in how we conduct our business and in how we interact with our key stakeholders including employees, neighbours, communities, customers and suppliers.
We have deep roots in our local community. We work and live here and have a long track record of fostering and maintaining good community relationships. Depending on the project in hand, we engage in open dialogue at local level, for example with Wellwood Healthcare Park we held a number of briefing evenings for residents close to the site and kept them informed throughout the process with information leaflets etc.
Over the years we have undertaken numerous sponsorship activities, most of which are sports related and community based reflecting our strong local commitment.
We have also developed well established relationships with local and national trade, industry and business organisations and government bodies, which are essential to the ongoing and sustainable development of the Company.
As a developer and builder, we have an obligation to meet the requirements of current legislation on health and safety as a minimum standard of performance. We aim high, and health and safety is a key priority for JFD. We have an excellent record throughout our history of protecting people and ensuring the health and safety of our employees and contractors.
Over the years we have built a proud reputation of developing top quality projects on time and on budget. Quality is one of the hallmarks of our success and our approach encompasses key elements such as design, materials and finishes, construction standards, infrastructure and facilities and client satisfaction.
The environment and good environmental stewardship are very topical today and often increasingly important to occupiers. We play our own small part in a number of ways including, for example, safe waste disposal, recycling and reuse of materials and packaging where possible and integrating environmental features into building design.
