all winners and runners-up of this year’s Ivor Goodsite Hoarding Competition.
This competition offers a tremendous opportunity for those registered with the
Scheme to collaborate with local schools and community groups to provide
colourful and creative works of art across hoardings. Construction site
hoardings are the ‘shop window’ of the industry, and it is excellent to see, through
this competition, so many hoardings being used to communicate really important
messages across our communities.

you to all the Scheme-registered sites and companies for participating and
making a real difference to the local communities impacted by construction
activity. These efforts continue to help improve the image of construction, and
we look forward to even more sites entering the competition in 2020 and beyond.”

trophy and banner. There is also a special Ivor Goodsite Hoarding Competition
