The UK’s very highest performing construction sites have been awarded the coveted title of ‘Most Considerate Site’ at the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s 2017 National Site Awards.
The Scheme’s National Site Awards are one of the most revered accolades within the UK construction industry. They recognise Scheme-registered sites that have demonstrated the very highest level of consideration in respect of the community, environment and workforce.
This year, sites were eligible to win the top accolade of ‘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 awards ceremonies, which attract over 3000 guests from construction sites of all different sizes across the UK, were held from 20 March – 7 April in Edinburgh, London and Manchester.
The 2017 National Site Awards applied to registered sites that completed in 2016.
The Scheme presented 848 National Site Awards out of 7962 eligible registered sites. In addition to the six Most Considerate Site Awards, there were 337 Bronze, 319 Silver and 156 Gold as well as 30 Most Considerate Site Runners-Up.
Considerate Constructors Scheme Executive Chairman Isabel Martinson said: Congratulations to all 2017 National Site Award winners. Winning an award with the Considerate Constructors Scheme is a huge achievement, as only the top-performing sites are eligible for such an accolade.
The successes of award-winning sites demonstrate the importance of embedding the core principles of the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice, creating a positive long-term legacy for the local community, environment and workforce.
Special congratulations to the Most Considerate Site award winners, who represent considerate construction at its very best. Each of these sites is a beacon of best practice for the industry, having clearly shown exceptional effort and commitment in pursuit of improving the image and reputation of the construction industry.
Edward Hardy, Chief Executive of the Scheme, commented: The National Site Awards are one of the highlights of the industry year and an annual opportunity for the Scheme to celebrate and reward the UK’s most considerate sites. The awards continue to go from strength to strength and this year is no exception, with sites more determined than ever before to improve the image of the industry in increasingly innovative and impressive ways.
The Scheme congratulates each and every award-winning site for their unsurpassed efforts in improving the image of construction.
