Considerate Constructors Scheme announces considerate companies
The Considerate Constructors Scheme – the national scheme established by the construction industry to improve its image – has recognised the most considerate companies and suppliers at this year’s national awards, which recognise the highest performing companies and suppliers which have demonstrated excellence in relation to the community, the environment and their workforce.
In total, 21 gold, 32 silver and 43 bronze awards were presented to registered companies, and two gold, one silver and four bronze awards to registered suppliers. Of the gold award winners, seven companies were shortlisted and received the ‘Most Considerate Company Runner-up’ and one supplier the ‘Most Considerate Supplier Runner-up’.
Four companies were presented with the coveted top award of ‘Most Considerate Company 2016’:
Connect Plus Services (annual turnover: £10m and over)
Rydon Maintenance – Islington (annual turnover: £3.5m to <£10m)
Linfoot Country Homes Ltd (annual turnover: £250k to <£3.5m)
Solent Industrial Roofing Systems (annual turnover: Under £250k).
Connect Plus Services undertakes planned and reactive highway maintenance works to sections of the M25 motorway and its arterial link roads through a 30-year contract with Highways England. This enthusiastic and safety-conscious team was applauded for its constant refinement of depot and site safety, and consideration of its workforce.
Linfoot Country Homes Ltd is a family-owned business located near Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, specialising in high quality new and converted homes in the South Midlands for over 20 years. In constantly striving to achieve yet higher standards, this company projected an image which was a credit to all those involved.
Rydon Maintenance (North London Region) is in the 13th year of a long-term contract with Islington Council for the repair and maintenance of more than 6000 properties. This potentially intrusive work demands a high degree of care and consideration and this was clearly demonstrated by Rydon through its community work.
Based in Portsmouth, Hampshire, Solent Industrial Roofing Systems specialises in providing roofing services industry-wide. One recent project was for a storage building on a military base in Wiltshire and the company spared no effort in ensuring the development was sensitive to the client’s operations security standards.
HSS Hire Service Group Ltd triumphed as the ‘Most Considerate Supplier 2016’, making them the first registered supplier to win this prestigious title since Supplier Registration was introduced in 2014. The company has robust policies and procedures in place to ensure professional, safe and efficient operations.
Considerate Constructors Scheme Executive Chairman Isabel Martinson said: “Congratulations to all award winners. The Scheme is hugely proud to honour the great achievements of top performing registered companies and suppliers. Over 900 companies and suppliers registered with the Scheme in the past 12 months, representing significant growth on the previous year, and making competition even tougher. With such high demand for construction activity across the UK, it is essential that the industry works collaboratively and continues to raise standards.”
