Modern Slavery Statement

This statement has been published in accordance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. OBR Construction has taken steps to endeavor to prevent modern slavery and/ or human trafficking from taking place within our business or our supply chain.

Introduction
Modern Slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. OBR Construction has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to act ethically, with integrity and transparency in all our business dealings. We are committed to putting in place effective systems and controls to safeguard against any form of modern slavery within the business and our supply chain.

Our business
OBR Construction is a specialist sub-contractor operating in the UK and Ireland. We construct concrete frame buildings and structures for some of the most reputable main contractors and developers in both countries and main the highest standards of operation across all regions.

Potential high-risk areas specific to Obr Construction
The following areas are considered to be at risk of modern slavery within Obr Construction. We will continually review and update this list as necessary:
• The supply of materials which may be produced in jurisdiction or by organizations that are not compliant with such legislation.
• The supply of staff where the recruitment agencies’ processes are not compliant with the Modern Slavery Act.
• The usage of subcontractors who may be non-compliant with Modern Slavery Act.

OBR Construction is committed to reduce its exposure to the above potential risk areas by employing stringent recruitment processes and robust pre-qualification and procurement processes when dealing with all suppliers and potential employees.

Our commitment to combating modern slavery
OBR Construction is committed to prevent modern slavery within its corporate activities. We operate a robust recruitment policy including conducting eligibility to work in the UK for all employees to safeguard against human trafficking or individuals being forced to work against their will. The Company uses specified, reputable employment agencies to source its staff. Employment agencies supplying agency staff must adhere to the Agency Workers Regulations 2010. OBR Construction follows clear business ethics in order to enable a working environment where integrity and respect govern our internal and external working relationships. A commitment to operating and behaving ethically is demanded of every member of staff.

Modern slavery assessment within our supply chain
OBR Construction conducts detailed due diligence on our regular suppliers and on all new suppliers. The due diligence involves a questionnaire to our most regular suppliers to help identify any potential areas of weakness within their organization which could be open to modern slavery abuses. New suppliers are vetted through our robust pre-qualification process, which clearly outlines the conditions for meeting our expectations and requirements of compliance with the Modern Slavery Act. Contracts with existing suppliers who do not meet our Modern Slavery Act policies will not be renewed and new suppliers who fall short of our requirements will not be commissioned by the directors of Obr Construction.

Continuing risk assessment of modern slavery
We understand that modern slavery risk is not static. We will continue to mitigate our risk to exposure to modern slavery by continuing to educate and train our staff and monitor our supply chain.

This statement was approved by the Board of Directors.

 

"OBR’s team were dynamic in their approach preferring to slip form each of the 4 cores, the tower core was successfully slipped in 7 weeks and quickly became a new landmark on Bristol’s skyline."

Castle Park View Development, Bouygues UK

Bouygues UK engaged OBR Group for the construction of the RC Frame on the iconic Castle Park View Development situated in the centre of Bristol. The 26 storey tower along with 4 other lower level blocks has become the tallest building to be constructed in Bristol having surpassed the historic Saint Mary Redcliffe constructed over 500 years ago. The works were carried out between October 2019 and December 2020. OBR’s team were dynamic in their approach preferring to slip form each of the 4 cores, the tower core was successfully slipped in 7 weeks and quickly became a new landmark on Bristol’s skyline. OBR supported the Bouygues delivery team and working well together allowed the works to be completed to a good quality and ahead of programme despite the impacts and closures associated with Covid-19. I would have no hesitation in working with OBR again in the future.
