@54StJamesStreet Tenant of the Week: Constructing Equality (@ConstructingEQ) #ff

Our brand new £5.3mil centre at 54 St James Street is home to a number of fantastic local businesses, so we have decided to hi-light a different one each week.

Our 'Tenant of the Week' today is 'Constructing Equality Ltd.' Founded by Chrissi McCarthy.



Constructing Equality Ltd. is the UK’s leading provider of construction-specific equality and diversity training and consulting. Founded in 2007 by Chrissi McCarthy MCIOB to improve equality and diversity in the construction industry. Since then, Constructing Equality have grown rapidly, doubling their turnover year-on-year and building strong, long-term partnerships with some of the industry’s biggest names such as the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) and the Construction Industry Council (CIC).
That growth has been down to the team’s ability to tailor programmes and initiatives to the needs of the organisations they work with. In turn, they have quickly become one of the most recognisable voices in the area: respected, thought leaders and champions for a better-integrated, more equal and rewardingly diverse construction industry.

As time has gone on, it has been a natural progression for the organisation to get involved in equality and diversity strategy. Today, they take the role of helping organisations instigate and implement change very seriously. And, after helping to develop the Built Environment Fairness, Inclusion and Respect Framework (BE FaIR), Constructing Equality now have a practical benchmarking system that will benefit businesses today and provide future generations with the knowledge, tools and mind-sets to continually improve the industry.

The past six months have been a very busy period for Constructing Equality Ltd., with the pilot phase of the BE FaIR Framework well underway they have received a vast array of interest from various organisations across the country. Managing Director, Chrissi McCarthy MCIOB was asked to speak on the morning show of BBC Radio Merseyside and she was also invited to speak at the House of Lords.
