The 2019 winners of the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s National Site Award

A demolition project run by Northern Gas Networks has won the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s (CCS) National Site Award.

The CCS National Site Awards recognise the highest-performing construction sites against the CCS’s Code of Construction Practice. 

The CCS looks at any area of construction activity that may have a direct or indirect impact on the image of the industry as a whole, and monitors how considerate the site is being towards its local community, environment and workforce.

Out of over 6,700 eligible sites across the United Kingdom and Ireland, the CCS presented its Most Considerate Site Award – the organisation’s top honour - to just six worksites.

The awards ceremonies took place at iconic venues in Edinburgh, London and Manchester, UK, between March and April 2019.

The big successes included a double award win for UK-based company Willmott Dixon Construction. The company picked up awards for its worksites on its Woodmansterne Secondary School and University Centre, Rotherham projects.

This year’s awards were for registered sites completed in 2018. Sites were eligible to win the Most Considerate Site award within project values ranging from under  £500,000 (US$650,000) to over £50 million ($65 million).

Considerate Constructors Scheme CEO Edward Hardy said: “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.”
