Hundreds
of guests from the UK’s top-performing Ultra Sites gathered at the prestigious
venue of Plaisterers’ Hall in central London on 18 July for the Awards ceremony,
which was presented by Ann Bentley, the Construction Leadership Council lead on
Supply Chain and Business Models.

The aim
of Ultra Sites is to achieve ever greater integration of a contractor’s supply
chain to meet and exceed the Scheme’s Code
of Considerate Practice. Being the highest level of attainment in consideration
and best practice, they are the pinnacle of excellence across the construction
industry.

Considerate
Constructors Scheme Chief Executive Edward Hardy said: “Special congratulations
to each award-winning Ultra Site and award-winning Supplier who have set the
bar of considerate construction to an exceptional level. Congratulations also to
each finalist, whose efforts in driving greater collaboration across their
supply chain is commended.

“Ultra
Sites represent a real turning point for the construction industry, by
providing a way for the industry to work more collaboratively and realise the
benefits of this greater integration for their workforce, community and environment.
The winners and finalists of these awards range from small scale local projects
through to large scale regional multi billion pound projects. This clearly
shows how the Ultra Site model can be embraced by any type of construction
activity, no matter the size, scale or budget.

“Thank
you to everyone involved in making Ultra Sites such a success. We look forward
to its continuing growth and development as the model to achieve greater
standards in considerate construction throughout the supply chain.”
