The biggest ever National Company Awards!
The Considerate Constructors Scheme’s annual National Company Awards have celebrated registered companies that have made the greatest contribution towards improving the image of construction.
The awards recognise companies that have registered with the Scheme and have demonstrated exceptional and ongoing commitment to considerate construction and an appreciation of the impact of their work on the community, the environment and their workforce.
This year the awards took place across two ceremonies at Plaisterers’ Hall in London in front of over 300 industry professionals, with special guests Peter Hansford, Government Chief Construction Adviser, and Simon Carr, NFB’s National Chair, presenting the awards.

Award winners faced stiff competition with only the highest performing companies receiving an award this year; 20 Gold, 29 Silver and 46 Bronze Awards were presented. From the Gold Award winners, a shortlist was produced of the very highest performers and four companies received the top accolade of Most Considerate Company while seven other companies that were considered for this award were presented with the title of Most Considerate Company Runner-up.
For the first time ‘value bands’ were introduced to enable companies to be assessed based on their turnover; Over £10m; £3.5m – £10m; £250k – £3.5m; Up to £250k.
A-one+ Area 12 (Over £10m), Devon Medical Turnkey Solutions ( Up to £250k), T. A. D. Builders (£3.5m – £10m), and Yarlington Property Management (£250k – £3.5m) each received this ‘best of the best’ Most Considerate Company 2015 Award, for their outstanding achievements in exceeding the requirements of the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice.

Considerate Constructors Scheme Chief Executive Edward Hardy commented:
The Scheme is delighted to recognise the great achievements that the 2015 National Company Award winners have made. Over 600 companies register with the Scheme every year and this year’s competition to win an award was tougher than ever – with companies increasing their standards and performance to the next level. With such high demand for construction activity across the UK, it’s paramount that the industry works collaboratively and continues to raise standards.
