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 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.
The Scheme presented only 764
National Site Awards from a total of over 6700 eligible sites. In addition to
the six Most Considerate Site Award winners, there were 336 Bronze, 252 Silver
and 152 Gold, as well as 18 Most Considerate Site Runners-Up.
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, during the
awards ceremonies. The highest performing Ultra Sites and their supply chain
partners will receive recognition and a separate awards ceremony held in July.
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 7000 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.”
