Lynch and SCS JV supporting the Iver Environment Centre with Phase 2 of Works

Lynch is proud to support the Iver Environment Centre (Groundwork South) in the next phase of their regeneration project, following the success of last years' works. Last summer, in collaboration with Skanska Costain STRABAG Joint Venture (SCS JV), we provided free of charge equipment to help create a brand-new wildflower meadow island, allowing new ecosystems for the wildlife to flourish. 

The centre is now renovating their play area, building an inclusive and wildlife-focused space that allows young people to engage with nature. 

The habitats-themed play area will feature slides, nets and dens, and a giant beehive inspired climbing structure that you can crawl into through the honeycomb. Iver Environment Center has also implemented accessible slides and basket swings for those less able, promoting inclusivity for all. We were keen to help and so with the support of SCS JV, we provided a 5T Excavator and Operator, assisting with the construction of the multi-level adventure playground. 

The Iver Environment Centre is an environmental education centre owned by the National Grid and run by Groundwork South, a 'not-for-profit' organisation aiming to work with communities and improve the quality of life for local people. The centre has been open for over 30 years, running a range of activities throughout the year that helps people connect with nature. They host many school visits, offering ecology-based sessions that allow young learners to enjoy spending time outdoors. 

Lynch have been working closely with SCS JV on HS2 South, and so we must make continuous efforts to improve the areas close to the works, such as the Iver Environment Center. We look forward to seeing the finished result, and to collaborating on future projects. 

We have been successfully working with Lynch on community engagement projects across the HS2 Project for a number of years now.  They are always keen to get involved and have made a valuable contribution to improving lives in the communities along the HS2 route on a number of schemes
