Roadbridge has won a Gold Award at the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s 2018 National Site Awards for its North Runway Construction Package 1 project at Dublin Airport.

This is a huge achievement for the Irish construction industry, as it is the first project in Ireland to win a coveted gold award following the launch of the Scheme in Ireland in 2017.

There were many examples of outstanding best practice on this project; especially singled out for praise was the “collaborative team working” in meeting all of the project’s challenges, with exceptional outcomes achieved across all five sections of the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice.

We are delighted at Roadbridge’s success and commend them, and daa’s project delivery team, on their commitment to the principles of the Considerate Constructors Scheme.

Executive lead, daa

This award is a testament to the dedicated project and support team at Roadbridge and also to the excellent collaborative working relationship throughout the works between ourselves and the daa team.
