The use of drone footage is becoming an increasingly useful tool for M.V.Kelly.
By embracing this technology we can relay up to date progress to our clients with a level of detail not previously possible.
The drones can also be used for site security purposes and footage shared between departments.
Pictured here is a section of our Gallows Hill, Warwick project.
M.V.Kelly are working for the charity Betel UK on a project to build sheltered accommodation for 48 people requiring a community based recovery from addiction.
The job includes groundworks plus a new foul water treatment plant and associated soakaway.
Betel UK is an independent Christian charity for men, women and families affected by the hardships that lead to social exclusion, especially homelessness, drug and alcohol abuse and long-term unemployment.
Paul and Karen Whelan are supporting this charity throughout the build. Many M.V. Kelly suppliers have thankfully assisted Paul and Karen to allow their funding to travel further through the build process.
Pictured here are Chris Villers and his team in our Stafford offices.
As you can see all Covid precautions have been taken!

This week the B'ham office have had settings installed to monitor the amount of printing done on a daily basis. The information tells us how much we have printed and equates it to ecological and financial costs etc.
Hopefully having individual access to this data will encourage users to be more sensible with printer usage and make us that little bit greener.
As a company aware of its environmental responsibility M.V.Kelly Ltd have decided to offset the carbon footprint generated during our John O’Groats to Lands End charity challenge.
Participants needed to be transported to points in specific areas of the route either by minibus or aeroplane.
With this in mind we have planted twenty established trees which over 25 years will offset the CO2 emissions accrued during the event.
By contributing to a sustainable project such as these we hope to work towards reducing our Carbon Footprint over the coming years.
