Sewell Estates Newsletter

Hi everyone,

Welcome to the November edition of our newsletter, with all the latest updates on what’s been going on in our estates businesses.

Although lots of people are now counting down to Christmas, we’re still hard at work with some fantastic projects in the pipeline and coming up to completion.

In this edition, learn how the Humber Freeport is attracting attention from government, read more about solar energy from our FM team or about how health can save our high streets, and watch students from Ron Dearing UTC get creative in their new STEAM studios.

Want to know more? Drop me a line, I’m always up for a chat!

Best wishes, Jo

The eyes of the world are on the Humber

We are I&G

It’s been quite a year so far for I&G. Completing one of their most complex build programmes to date has been just one of a series of highlights for the team.

But who are I&G, and what do they do?
