Our team of volunteers has created a special dual-purpose garden for students at The Henry Beaufort School, Winchester. Pupils have started a horticultural club and will grow flowers, fruit and vegetables, in planters created using recycled pallets from our Worthy Down project. There’s also a contemplation space for young people to remember former student Mac Sutcliffe. #Webuildforabettersociety http://bit.ly/2uWnn5j
Hear about the work we are doing in Poland to encourage the industry to make buildings more accessible for all. "We want people with special needs to be fully independent – in movement and in communication – in our buildings," says Joanna Ejsmont, a Skanska Sustainability Coordinator. "This is the way we see accessibility." #buildingwhatmatters https://lnkd.in/eWcWFdN
Shaping history: Excited to announce that we have signed a contract for the construction of St.Giles Circus, in the heart of the West End, London. The project includes retaining some heritage elements such as the refurbishment of listed buildings, some dating back to as late as 1666. http://bit.ly/2v6NtTv

A sauna in the summer?
In Finland, it’s a must. That’s why the Boklok homes that we create include a shared “yard sauna". Finns hop in to the sauna before dashing to the sea or a lake for a refreshing dip.
What's your favorite thing to do in the summer?
