Skanska projects are recognised as considerate

Press release 01/05/2013 10:15 CET

Numerous Skanska sites have been presented with Considerate Constructor accolades at the annual National Site Awards held last month.

Presented at events around the country, they included Gold awards for Paddington and HMP and YOI Grampian, the third silver in a row for RAF Wyton and Paddington and M25 junctions 27 to 30 being named as runner ups for most considerate site.

The awards recognise the sites' exceptional standards of consideration towards local neighbourhoods and the general public, the workforce and the environment. Any site registered with the Scheme is eligible to win a National Site Award providing that the site, or registered phase, has completed on or before the 31 December in the previous year. From those sites that have completed, award winners are selected from the top performing 10%.

Chairman of the Considerate Constructors Scheme, David Watson, said: “Once again even throughout these tough times for our industry, many sites have excelled to not only maintain standards, but surpass what has been achieved in previous years.

The team working on Sea Mills Primary School in Bristol received a bronze award for its good appearance, being a good neighbour, its respectful and responsible behaviour and for being accountable for its actions.

Stuart Cload, Site Manager for Skanska explained: “The school is located in the heart of the community and we understand the disruption this can cause to local residents. We are determined to minimise this and have already put measures in place to keep residents informed of any aspects of the construction phase that may affect their day-to-day lives.”

Kirsteen Craig, Headteacher for the school commented: "We have appreciated our good working relationship with Skanska and their level of professionalism from the initial build to support following our move into the school. We have a fantastic building for learners in the 21st century."
