RG Group are proud and delighted to be the inaugural winner of the Considerate Constructors Scheme ‘Ultra Site Of The Year’ for the Sainsbury’s scheme at Redhill

The Ultra Site initiative provided a platform for inspiring collaboration and learning within the wider team and the community.

We would like to thank all our sub-contractors, consultants and the RG team. The power of the construction collective shone through and is recognised in this award.

The success of Ultra Sites as a model for encouraging the construction industry to truly collaborate throughout the supply chain has clearly been achieved thanks to all the considerable efforts made by the award-winners and finalists.

These Awards are an extremely important milestone for the entire construction industry, as each Ultra Site represents a ‘sea change’ in how construction is achieving and striving for ever-higher standards.

On behalf of the Considerate Constructors Scheme, I would like to thank and congratulate all award winners and finalists for making the ultimate commitment to improving the image and reputation of our industry.
