Transforming Spaces: Design Factor
Transforming Spaces: Design Factor featured on BBC is a unique roadshow endorsed by Richard Branson that transforms, re-builds & designs empty spaces and empty shops, whilst up skilling young people and community members aged 16-30. Working with build experts and volunteers from the community it acts like DIY SOS/60 minute makeover.
Our passion is re-building empty spaces and our team will work with you on the planning, design and build of the space to turn it into a thriving community provision. Training on the site includes: planning, design, construction, managing budgets, trade skills such as plastering, painting, carpentry, kitchen fitting, marketing, business and managing the whole project. The roadshow works from one day up to two weeks in each area and encourages volunteers to get actively involved and progress onto training, employment or Starting Up. This is a unique opportunity to work with industry experts, universities, colleges, employers and our expert team. The whole process is filmed and broadcast. Certificates provided endorsed by the University of South Wales.

Women Construction and Engineering Programme
As there are only 6% of women in engineering, 3% of women in manual trades and 11% of women in construction professional roles. In January 2015 due to the increasing need for a service to offer women and girls opportunities in construction and engineering our business launched a Women into Construction & Engineering Programme. Due to the huge success of the scheme placing over 100 women and girls onto site visits, work placements, careers, training and jobs in industry. This programme offers a fast track route into industry and stepping stones into construction and engineering.
