Recently Churngold Construction (Midlands) assisted the DIY SOS team with the groundworks on the DIY SOS:

The Big Build in West Bromwich.

A tremendous effort by all the Midlands Staff & supply chain partners were involved.

The Family:

Crystal Chambers (32) mother of two young children, Deago & Ameria, visited her local GP and hospital on numerous

occasions over two years and was left undiagnosed.

Then, in September 2015, she was suddenly given the devatating news that she had terminal cancer and just 48 hours to live.

Tragically Crystal passed away on 14 October 2015, aged 32.

 

Sadly, Crystal did not have any life insurance nor did she own her own home, so her young children were left homeless

and in financial despair.It was therefore left to Crystal's grieving mother, Sandra, to take the young children into her home.

 

Grandma Sandra (51), who has dedicated her entire life to working with familes in crisis, lives in a tiny 2 bedroom house with her

19 year old son Ziggy (Crystal's brother), who is in full time education and coaches young people in basketball.

Sandra, Deago (9) and Ameria (3) are now sharing one small bedroom, with a double bed, a camp bed and a toddler bed

squeezed at the side. This is not a long term solution and they are struggling with the claustrophobia.

They don't have room for proper beds let alone clothes, toys and space to call their own.

They desperately need help to create a home for the children, so that they can start a new chapter in life,

give them each space to grieve and also to live long-term.

 

Sandra is struggling with her grief and the challenges of being a surrogate mother to her grandchildren.

She has needed to work longer hours to keep the family afloat - so retirement is no longer an option.

Ziggy is also grieving and is now a surrogate father to his niece and nephew.

 

Deago is regressing, there is no space for him to have downtime, his identity in the house

and his frustration at home are showing now at school.

The bond with his mum was so strong and he just isn't coping with the lack of space at home

and processing his feelings of loss.

 

With totally unsuitable accommodation, the future of the children remaining in their grandmother's home

may become a concern; so that's where DIY SOS team and generous volunteers stepped in to drastically

improve a grieving family's home and guarantee that Sandra can keep the family together.

Churngold Construction Ltd has recently won both the Health & Safety Award, and SME of the Year at the Constructing Excellence South West 2017 South West Built Environment Awards.

The Health & Safety Award was as a result of the introduction of their Safe Dig and Hazard Spot initiatives, which have resulted in no Reportable Accidents for 3 years and a really low number of minor injuries and service strikes, whilst the award for SME of the Year was as a result of a number of initiatives, including 3D modelling projects to allow significant VE opportunities to be identified for their clients at tender stage, the development of a Groundworker Apprenticeship Scheme in conjunction with the CITB, Weston College and JP Training, as well as working closely with their own supply chain to reduce contractual administration to a minimum  and ensuring prompt payment for all their Approved Subcontractors and Suppliers.

Andrew Brown, MD of Churngold Construction said "I would very much like to thank everyone in the business for all their hard work, not just in developing these intiatives, but making sure they continue to be our everyday behaviours, because not only are they clearly Best Practice, they are appreciated by our clients and are what differentiate us from our competitors, win us work and make sure we all go home safely every day".

Churngold Construction are one of the country's leading Groundworks companies with offices in Bristol, Newport in South Wales and have recently opened an office near Crewe.  The Company turns over in excess of £30M and employs 200 people and works in the South West, South Wales and Midlands for a wide range of clients.
