Costain, Gentoo Construction, Robert Woodhead Ltd and Walter Thompson (Contractors) have each been awarded the title of Most Considerate Site at the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s 2016 National Site Awards.
It is the first time that four sites have won the accolade, following the introduction of ‘value bands’ which means sites are assessed against projects of similar value including: Under £500k; £500k to <£5m; £5m to <£10m and £10m and over.
Over 3000 guests attended award ceremonies held in Edinburgh, London and Manchester in April.
Projects registered with the Scheme must demonstrate an appreciation of the impact of their work on the community, the environment and their workforce.
A total of 932 National Site Awards were presented including 430 Bronze awards, 293 Silver awards and 173 Gold awards and 32 Most Considerate Site Runners-Up.
Edward Hardy, Chief Executive of the Considerate Constructors Scheme, said: “Congratulations to each and every site receiving a 2016 National Site Award. Every year, the Scheme is taken aback by the many different ways contractors demonstrate their considerate credentials. This year has been no exception, with project teams across the UK serving as beacons of best practice.
“Special congratulations go to each of the 2016 Most Considerate Sites. These sites have shown truly exceptional performance, making tremendous efforts in going way above and beyond compliance with the Scheme – taking considerate construction to a new level.
“They have worked with enthusiasm and dedication to ensure that they showcase the very best of the construction industry, helping to make construction a more attractive career choice.”
