Part of the King’s Cross redevelopment in London, this project involved the construction of a multi-storey office building with
leisure facilities including a swimming pool, gymnasium, and public library. It also included an additional 11 storeys of office
space for Camden Council.
A significant community initiative at the site was working with three subcontractors to design, create and donate a
permanent floating viewing platform on Regent’s Canal to host educational workshops run by the Camley Street Natural Park.
The platform also allows visitors excellent views of the park and the whole of the King’s Cross development. In addition, site
volunteers constructed an environmentally-focused children’s game for the community ‘skip garden’, as well as providing
planters and seats for a canal-side public house. They also donated old PPE equipment to a Ukrainian support charity.
Educational work included a Learning Lunch for 14-16 year olds and local residents, as well as placements and apprenticeships
on the site.
The site performed to the highest levels in terms of safety systems and environmental standards, demonstrating immaculate
presentation and first-rate provision and support for its workforce. The project team created a highly professional profile that
reflected exceptionally well on the industry.
This project, on a former industrial estate in Bristol, comprises the construction of a Sainsbury’s store of about 30,000 square
feet with associated car parking.
With hoardings decorated to look like a hedge and local schools involved in its decoration, this site combined sparkling
presentation with real community engagement. The many other instances of practical local support included the
refurbishment of a scout hut, the repair and refurbishment of a popular local footbridge, the refreshment of park benches and
the donation of a raft, together with unwanted site materials to the local church. Meanwhile, school interactions included a
challenge to build a tower of jelly babies with the help of structural engineers, and a highly popular painting competition.
For older school pupils, members of the site team attended a World of Work day promoting industry opportunities, and
their stall at a local carnival encouraged applications for apprenticeships and work placements. Supported by exceptional
standards of occupational healthcare and safety observation, this site was a true testament to the aims of the Scheme.
