This long-term project involved a major road-widening scheme on the A23 London to Brighton road, including the
construction of new service roads, roundabouts and extensive landscaping.
Of special note was the site team’s response when a coach carrying more than 70 foreign students broke down in the road
works area. Bottles of water and a temporary Portaloo were quickly provided and the site minibus transferred the passengers
to the safety of the compound. The visiting Scheme Monitor also noted the site’s engagement with “Building Britain”, the
Government’s social media campaign, highlighting the construction industry’s contribution to UK economic growth.
In terms of presentation, all site personnel received a comprehensive induction covering all aspects of appearance, together
with information on company values. A site champion was responsible for ensuring standards were met.
This level of commitment was demonstrated throughout all sections of the Code of Considerate Practice, with exceptional
standards consistently maintained through to completion. In every respect, this site was a fine ambassador for the industry.
This major project in Rochdale, Lancashire, followed on from the first phase to construct a new school and involved the
demolition of old outbuildings and full landscaping of the entire area.
The Scheme Monitor noted that the Silver Award-winning standards of the first phase had been further improved for this
second phase, producing a site of truly exemplary standards. In particular, there was strong attention to detail in areas ranging
from community support to environmental protection, and a policy of continuing improvement was clearly in evidence.
Highlights included the team’s close co-operation with education providers and careers specialists, and their weekly site
progress tours for school staff and pupils. Unused materials, old school furniture and fitments were donated to charity, and
several members of the site team changed to hybrid cars for improved environmental performance.
The friendly and enthusiastic nature of the site manager clearly fed down throughout the workforce, resulting in a benchmark
site of which the industry should be very proud.
