The Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) has revealed the top-performing construction sites across the UK who have been crowned the ‘Most Considerate Sites 2019’
The best performing construction sites across the UK and Ireland have been awarded the construction industry’s highest accolade of ‘Most Considerate Site 2019’ at ceremonies across the country.
The awards ceremonies welcomed thousands of guests and took place at iconic venues in Edinburgh, London and Manchester from 25 March – 12 April.
The Considerate Constructors Scheme National Site Awards recognise the highest-performing construction sites against the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice which monitors how considerate the construction site is being towards their local community, environment and workforce.
This year’s awards were for registered sites that completed in 2018. Sites were eligible to win the ‘Most Considerate Site’ within the following six ‘project value bands’: Under £500k; £500k to <£1m; £1m to <£5m; £5m to <£10m; £10m to <£50m; and £50m and over.
For the second year running, Ultra Sites, the scheme’s highest attainment of registration, were also recognised for their outstanding commitment in collaborating with their supply chains. The highest performing Ultra Sites and their supply chain partners will receive recognition at the Ultra Sites awards ceremony held in July.
Construction sites amongst the winners included; Carlisle Gas Holder Demolition Project, Northern Gas Networks (Under £500k); University Centre, Rotherham, Willmott Dixon Construction (£5m to <£10m); One Blackfriars, St George City Ltd (£50m and over); and Camden FRA Works, Mulalley (£1m to <£5m).
Considerate Constructors Scheme chief executive, Edward Hardy said: “Congratulations to all the 2019 National Site Award winners. Each award winning site should be extremely proud of receiving this prestigious industry accolade, which recognises their invaluable contribution to improving the image of construction.
“Special congratulations must go to the highest performing construction sites winning the coveted title of ‘Most Considerate Site 2019’, which represent the very best of the construction industry in how they have raised their standards of considerate construction to the highest levels.
“Year-on-year, the scheme places a higher level of expectation for the 7,000 plus construction sites typically registered with the Scheme at any time. We work with sites to push the boundaries of what is achievable and this year’s accomplishments by sites have certainly not disappointed, with over 764 sites receiving National Site Award recognition.
“We are always amazed by the increasing levels of performance on site across the country, and we look forward to performance continuing to increase through next year and beyond.”
