Community-focused construction firm helps RNLI revamp

A CONSTRUCTION business which puts helping communities at the heart of its operations has carried out work at an RNLI site.

Evolution takes pride in delivering quality private housing, social housing, and sheltered housing to create sustainable communities across Lancashire, Cumbria, Cheshire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside.

Based on the Fylde Coast, Evolution’s latest assignment saw the company refurbishing the jetty and railings at nearby Lytham lifeboat station.

Dave Spalding, Evolution’s Helpdesk, Fleet and HR Manager, said: “With the lifeboat being such an important service and needing to be available 24/7 we were pleased to be able to act quickly on behalf of Fylde Council to deliver these urgent repairs.

“With the expertise of our team we were able to replace the timbers on the jetty and repair the railings to ensure the lifeboat is able to continue to launch successfully.” 

Evolution Managing Director JJ said: “We put communities at the heart of everything we do. We are always happy to support local projects like this which provide a vital service for the community.”

A spokesman for Fylde Council, who commissioned the work on the jetty and railings, said: “We are delighted with the speed and quality of work carried out by Evolution who were quick to respond to help us support the RNLI which is such a vital lifesaving service.” 

The Evolution team supports a range of community initiatives. Earlier this summer they took part in the annual Dragon Boat Race at Fairhaven Lake, raising £810 for the Blue Skies Hospitals Fund which supports thousands of children every year, from giving speech and language therapy to providing life-changing surgeries.

Evolution, which employs up to 80 people renovating private housing, social housing and sheltered housing across the North-West, also supports a range of pioneering training and career development opportunities for young people across the area.
