2014 MCS runners upGoodman's Fields

Presented to: The Site Team
Contractor: Berkeley First Ltd
Client: Student Castle

This project involves the construction of 617 units of student accommodation in a ten-storey tower block just north of Tower Bridge.

Support and development of the community was at an exemplary level at this site, ranging from local school safety presentations to a sponsored cross-channel kayak event. The number of initiatives were, according to the Scheme Monitor "too numerous to list" but involved the whole of the community within their reach.

As a legacy, the site is in the process of linking various local bodies together for their mutual benefit, varying from educational establishments and social clubs, to businesses and hospices. So far, approximately £1million pounds worth of materials have been recycled and donated to the local area.

With exceptional staff welfare dedication and superb external presentation, this site scored highly in all considerate areas and projected a first class image of the construction industry.
