Photos of some award winners

April 2007

This year’s Considerate Constructors Scheme Annual Awards ceremonies took place at six venues around the country. Awards were presented at eight ceremonies to 392 of the 5226 eligible sites. This year, 43 sites won gold, 84 Silver and 186 Bronze.
The 2007 Most Considerate Site Award was presented by Jennie Price, Hief Executive of the Waste Resources Action Programme (WRAP) at the last of the London ceremonies. This prestigious accolade went to Graham Fielden and Clark Wotherspoon of Scottish Water for their Blair Atholl project.

Details of this and all the other winners can be found in the searchable Awards section of this website.The following comments were made about the Awards:

“The Considerate Constructors Scheme now in its 10th year has had a major impact on how the construction industry is perceived by the public.  Sites run under the scheme’s criteria are without doubt better presented and safer and with a greater awareness of the impact they have on the community than those that are not.

My congratulations to the award winners and all participants – you continue to set higher standards and thus ‘raise the bar’!”
James Wates, Chairman Construction Confederation

“The Considerate Constructor sites have made one of the biggest contributions to improving the image of the construction industry to the wider public. They demonstrate some of the highest levels of professionalism in often the most difficult of circumstances.”
Chris Blythe, Chief Executive, Chartered Institute of Building.
“In recent years the UK construction industry has transformed itself into one that leads the world in the standards of considerate construction techniques. We are delighted to once again be able to recognise the superb efforts made by all of the Award winning companies and we applaud their dedication to improving our industries image”.
Peter Kingdon, Chairman of the Considerate Constructors Scheme
‘I am delighted to be associated with these awards, which recognise the excellent work done day in, day out on many sites to ensure they are clean, green, safe, and good neighbours to those who work and live around them. Celebrating their achievements is a great way to remind everyone just how important these issues are, and to drive up standards across the industry as a whole.’
Jennie Price, Chief Executive, Waste & Resources Action Programme
“I am delighted to see the continuing growth of the Considerate Constructors Scheme. This scheme has a very practical effect on participating sites, raising standards of protection for the public, who may be affected, and by focusing attention on health safety and welfare provision and respectful behaviour among the workforce. The scheme also provides a valuable tool for clients and contractors seeking to measure the progress they are making in these areas, year on year.”
Stephen Williams, Chief Inspector of Construction, HSE London.
