ISG, the contractor for the new Bristol Business School, recently won Gold at the National Considerate Constructors Awards.
The Considerate Constructors Scheme’s National Site Awards recognise those sites registered with the Scheme that have raised the bar for considerate construction.
Since 1999, the Scheme has been rewarding the UK’s most considerate sites for the contribution they have made towards improving the image of construction. The Scheme looks at the measures a site has put in place to be more considerate towards local neighbourhoods and the public, the workforce, and the environment.
ISG and the team won Gold due to an outstanding site appearance which was achieved through measures including site checks carried out by a director to ensure that presentation was consistent with branding and the site portrayed a positive image.
Both the client and contractor took a joint interest in community engagement and many goodwill activities were undertaken. Local businesses were used and local labour was estimated to be 88% of the workforce.
A full range of energy-saving measures were in place including carbon footprint monitoring and the use of cycles and public transport, which was estimated to have saved over 200 car journeys. The site provided the latest safety and risk information for visitors and operatives through briefing and posted information, being mindful of those with language or hearing difficulties.
Together with first class training and care and support programmes for operatives, this site demonstrated a total commitment to improving the image of construction.
Congratulations to the team!
