Supporting SMEs 

We understand the challenges faced by SMEs in navigating the complex landscape of the construction industry. Our organisation provides tailored support aimed at enhancing their capabilities, competitiveness, and ethical standards.

Knowledge Tracking

The drive of our support is to provide a comprehensive knowledge hub and activity-tracking platform. These resources serve as invaluable tools, offering SMEs access to a wealth of industry-specific information, best practices, and guidelines for responsible construction.

Enhancing Responsibility in Projects

 By leveraging our knowledge hub and activity tracking platform, SMEs gain insights into responsible construction methodologies. They are equipped with the necessary resources to embed ethical and sustainable practices into their projects, enhancing their responsibility and integrity.

Competitiveness in Tendering Processes

 Empowered with enhanced capabilities and a deeper understanding of responsible construction, SMEs become more competitive in tendering processes. This competitiveness extends beyond pricing, emphasising their commitment to sustainability and ethical practices, thus fostering a more responsible industry ecosystem. 

Impact on Sustainability

The support provided by Gneiss Community Development has a profound impact on the overall sustainability of the construction industry. Empowered SMEs contribute to the creation of environmentally conscious structures, minimise ecological footprints, and play a significant role in fostering social and economic growth within local communities.

Building a Responsible Industry

 By bolstering the capabilities of SMEs, we collectively work towards building a construction industry that prioritises responsibility, sustainability, and ethical standards. Our efforts drive a positive transformation, shaping a future where responsible practices are integral to construction endeavours. 

Ways to support, Sponsor and Partner With Us.

Your sponsor and partnership help to make 
our vision becomes a reality. 

We work hard to understand the key needs and objectives of those who support our work and work closely with them to achieve a progressive and mutually beneficial relationship, celebrating sponsorship meaningfully. Whether giving talks and CPDs to staff, matching skills with our volunteering needs, or simply sharing more about our work to help people promote our impact and help grow our fundraising and reach. We want to create a thriving community of supporters at all levels. Without this supportive community of sponsors, we could not deliver our work at the scale we do.
