My name is Honor Goodsite. You may have met me during one of my
many visits to schools, nurseries and youth groups where I talk about
the environment, careers in construction and site safety.
Just like my uncle Ivor, I work closely with the Considerate
Constructors Scheme and its registered sites, companies and
suppliers to promote all that is positive about the construction
industry. When the Scheme tasked me with creating a competition
encouraging companies to engage with their local communities, I came
up with the Big Build!
The Big Build is a fantastic way for companies to reach out to
their local communities and create wonderful, iconic buildings
with recyclable materials that everyone can get involved with and
I would like to personally thank all the children and adults that took
part in the first year of my Big Build competition – I was thrilled when
I was told that 32 sites had submitted entries. It was amazing to see
the fantastic buildings that nearly 900 people had banded together to
You will be able to see their superb creations on display in this
brochure which lists the participating sites, schools and community
groups they teamed up with to create such masterpieces.
Congratulations to all who took part. I look forward to seeing the
new works of art that next year’s Big Build will bring!
