What We Offer

Transforming Spaces: Design Factor

Our construction projects transforms empty and unused spaces through working with the community on the planning, design and build. Working with build experts and volunteers from the community it acts like DIY SOS/60 minute makeover. The aim is to up skill young people and members of the community to gain on site experience. If you have an empty space or empty building our team will work with you on the planning, design and rebuild of the space to turn it into a thriving community provision. 

Training on the site includes: planning, construction, managing budgets, Marketing, enterprise, business and managing the whole project. Our team and the experts will work on site for around one week  to re-build the space and encourage volunteers to become involved and progress into training, employment or Starting Up. Helping people to gain vital industry experience to progress their career.

The whole process is filmed and broadcast. Our build projects have included Wales First Garden City Café, The Hope Centre-Newport, Blaenau Gwent Community Hub-Waundeg, Empty Shops Project-Cardiff & Newport, State of the Art Cinema Room using Recycled Pallets- Cwmbran Centre for Young People, Penygraig Empty Shop, Newport Heritage Building. All photos of our construction projects can be seen on our Facebook Page.

Project costs depend on size and scale of re-build: POA  

Women into Construction & Engineering 

In January 2015 due to the increasing need for a service to offer women opportunities in construction and engineering we launched our ' Women in Construction' Arm. We signed up 100 women interested in careers and training within the construction industry and started offering work placements, site visits, health& safety training, on site experience, jobs, mentoring and routes into the industry. Since the launch of Pinkspiration there were only 1% of women in manual trades and this has increased to 3%. We recruit talent at all levels entry, apprenticeship and senior positions. Our team of experts scout the UK for the best talent and we also recruit through our construction programmes. There is such an exciting array of career opportunities for everyone, we saw a gap in the market where we work with employers to encourage diversity in the sector. The talent is placed into a variety of roles including site engineers, heating engineers, plasterers, tilers and starting up construction multi trade businesses. If you are a construction company or an individual that would like more information about this project please contact us.
