This project in Hackney, London, involved the construction of 180 homes in a single large block, forming part of a larger

phased regeneration of the Woodberry Down area.

In addition to artist-impressions of the finished job, the attractive hoarding panels displayed information on the way

the development has benefited the area, highlighting apprenticeships, work experience opportunities and future local

area developments. This was supported by an excellent monthly newsletter detailing all relevant construction plans, site

environmental achievements and a Fun Day staged to provide more information on the project.

The site was particularly community active, supporting local good causes and showing outstanding commitment towards

minimising the environmental impact of its work. Welfare provision for operatives included occupational and general health

advice, accommodation containing free Wi-Fi and the recognition of cultural needs and requirements for those with mobility

difficulties.

With first class performance in all areas of the Code of Considerate Practice, this site was of great credit to the team involved

and the industry as a whole.

In an iconic and high profile location adjacent to Tower Bridge, London, this ongoing project requires the construction of 350

dwellings in nine blocks up to 20 storeys tall. It encompasses some commercial space, a tourist attraction and other facilities.

The site is extremely visible to tourists and to the general public, and the team ensured a first class impression was created at

all times. Substantial hoardings around the whole site included panels featuring the history of London and the construction of

Tower Bridge. Their immaculate maintenance was complemented by regular litter picks to all the approaches, while excellent

traffic management underpinned the friendly, yet professional, team profile.

Integration within the community centred on active participation in local initiatives, supported by goodwill fundraising

gestures and practical support. Comprehensive and well-maintained welfare accommodation was accompanied by

occupational and general health advice, together with numerous training opportunities.

With exemplary standards in all considerate areas, this site team showed great enthusiasm and commitment, serving as

powerful ambassadors for considerate construction.
