RSS Infrastructure arborists support St. Basils

RSS Infrastructure’s arborists supported one of our accommodation projects last weekend by sectionally dismantling a semi-mature lime tree that was causing damage to the property.

Delivery Manager Ryan Faulkner commented, “It is important that we carry out charity work to support our partners like St. Basil’s when we can, as they do outstanding work supporting young homeless people.”

Peter Cushing, Director at the Midland Metro Alliance, added: “It is important for us to support our local communities wherever we can while delivering the Metro extensions across the region. St Basils provides invaluable support for vulnerable young people and we are delighted to have been able to assist them by removing the trees that were causing some damage to their building.”

Pauline Clarke from St Basils commented, “A massive thank you from us and the team at Gillott Road for the tree removal over the last weekend. I saw first-hand the damage the tree’s roots were causing to the building, let alone the natural light limitation.”

An MMA traffic management team supported the RSSI by arranging the temporary footpath closure with the council and manning the works for the day. Thanks go to Paul Vinning and James Weston, who managed the closure over the weekend.

Work such as this can cost upwards of thousands of pounds, and voluntary work such as this frees up funds that will help to further support our young people to live independent lives, increase confidence and inspire change. We want to thank RSS Infrastructure for their time and talents.
