The Considerate Construction Scheme (CCS) 2015 National Site Awards will be taking place during April and May, when a dozen ceremonies will be held in Edinburgh, Manchester and London. The scheme is a not-for-profit organisation aiming to improve the image of the construction industry and will be rewarding registered sites which have proved the most considerate towards local neighbourhoods, the public, the workforce and the environment.

In total, more than 800 sites have been selected for bronze, silver or gold awards. One gold award winner will win the Most Considerate Site 2015, with a number of runners-up also recognised.

Mike Petter, chairman of the Considerate Constructors Scheme, said: “Once again the scheme is delighted and very excited to be hosting the National Site Awards, with 2015 set to be our biggest to date.

“It is our privilege to reward the efforts of all those involved in projects which set the bar in terms of considerate construction. We never fail to be impressed each year by the high levels of innovation and excellence evidenced throughout the industry.”

The awards which take place over a two-month period will see leading industry figures presenting the awards. These include: Nick Baveystock, director general of the Institution of Civil Engineers; Paul Everall, chief executive of the LABC (Local Authority Building Control); Stephen Hodder, chairman/president elect of the Royal Institute of British Architects; Diana Montgomery, chief executive of the Construction Products Association; Paul Senior, national chair of the NFB (National Federation of Builders); and William Swan, director of Constructing Excellence in the North West.

Mike Petter concluded: “Each award-winning project serves as a shining example to the industry as to what can be achieved across a range of different sized projects and in all sectors of the industry. My congratulations to all sites selected for an award in 2015.”

Last year, Carillion Construction’s One St Peter’s Square won Most Considerate Site 2014.
