On behalf of Simons Group, Izy Hodgkinson was presented with the 2013 Be2Award for best use of Twitter yesterday at the company's new offices in Windmill Street, central London.
Lincoln-based Simons Group has been actively pursuing a policy of reducing its carbon footprint, achieving a 66% reduction since 2008. Izy highlighted the company's partnership with Marks & Spencer to deliver the award-winning Cheshire Oaks development as a key stage in the company's adoption of social media:
"It was the first project where we used Facebook and Twitter as an open forum for the public to find out about the project and comment on what was going on, ask questions about the build, job opportunities, or raise concerns. This was very successful and we aim to have the same approach for all our projects in the future."
