Burmor take part in charity football tournament

Published on Monday 23 April 2018

On a warm Friday evening representatives from Burmor Construction (and associated companies) took part in a charity football tournament at the Abax Stadium, home of Peterborough United FC. The Mick George cup was held to raise money for the British Heart Foundation, and consisted of 16 teams taking part in a group stage followed by finals to determine the overall winner.

The Burmor team, pictured below, wore black armbands to commemorate the recent passing of our Contracts Manager, Chris Dowd, whose funeral was scheduled to take place only four days after the tournament, and who will be sadly missed. Chris had suffered a series of heart attacks in 2017 and was treated at the Royal Papworth Hospital in Cambridgeshire. The Mick George cup raised over £4,000 for the British Heart Foundation.

Construction of 16 dwellings in Peterborough underway

Published on Friday 10 November 2017

We have now started in earnest on the construction of 16 affordable homes in Peterborough for Cross Keys Homes. The photo below shows the site as we prepare to excavate the foundations for the first pair of houses.

The new housing site occupies the site of a former car park, and therefore we have constructed a new car park close by to replace the existing one. The photo below shows the newly completed car park in operation.

As well as the 16 new affordable dwellings the project also involves the refurbishment of Hampton Court shopping parade. Completion is due for late 2018.
