LEADING INDUSTRY PRESENTERS

21 April

Stephen Hodder

Chairman / President Elect, Royal Institute of British Architects

I am delighted to have presented at the Scheme’s 2015 National Site Awards.

Considerate construction is now more important than ever, and it is with great

pleasure to be recognising those sites that have set the set the standard for

others to follow. Congratulations to everyone who has received an award.

16 & 20 April

Paul Everall

Chief Executive, Local Authority Building Control

It is encouraging that we are coming out of a fierce recession, and that the

demands for construction work are now increasing. But it is essential that as

pressures on building companies increase, this should not lead to decreased

consideration for people; clients, people near sites and the workers themselves.

That is why this Scheme is so important. Building control teams really

appreciate the incentives the Scheme provides to increase the number of

excellent constructors.

Nick Baveystock

Director General, Institution of Civil Engineers

Our industry works toward the betterment of society and it is vital we use

every opportunity at our disposal to showcase how we are doing just that.

Construction works for, with and in communities – setting us apart from many

other industries. As such, the CCS Awards reflects the step change constructors

have made in their relationship with society. We must continue to build on this

success, constantly seeking to raise standards.

Andy Munro

Chief Operating Officer, Royal Institute of British Architects

The RIBA encourages architects and designers to promote the CCS as it is a

quality assurance to clients and the public as well as highlighting the effective,

safe and considerate work of enlightened contractors. The RIBA’s purpose is

to champion better buildings, communities and the environment through

architecture and our members. The CCS objectives are synergic with the RIBA’s

aims. I am pleased to offer my congratulations, on behalf of the RIBA and

architects’ profession to all of this year’s National Site Awards winners, and to

thank them for the great standards they are achieving for our construction

industry.
