For the second successive year, Edwinstowe-based construction company Robert Woodhead Ltd has taken home the title of Most Considerate Site In The UK for projects under £500k at the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) Awards.
The brand new Skate Plaza, built for Nottingham City Council on King Edward Park in St Ann’s, also won a gold award for its considerate approach to construction
The company gained a bronze award for its community engagement efforts while carrying out refurbishment work at All Saints’ Academy, Mansfield.
Derek McGrath, director for Robert Woodhead Ltd, said: “We pride ourselves on the work we do as a company to deliver measurable impact on the sites we work on.
“It’s always our aim not only to do an excellent job but also to leave a positive legacy behind, whether that be through our engagement with the local community, or our efforts to provide work placement opportunities, local jobs and training.
“To take home the most considerate title two years in a row is a fantastic achievement, and to then be followed by gold and bronze awards is just tremendous. I’m incredibly proud of the teams involved in these particular sites, they have put a huge amount of effort into achieving such fantastic results.”
The work at All Saints’ Academy by Woodhead and its local sub contractors impressed the monitor. The site team invited Mansfield Town FC to visit the school during Woodhead’s time on site to carry out training with a group of students. Players held a mini press conference with the young people, answering all their questions, as well as signing a lot of autographs and posing for selfies.
Both winning projects were procured through the East Midlands Property Alliance (empa), managed by Scape Procure, which aims to improve the delivery of construction projects and property maintenance for public sector bodies, saving them and the taxpayer money.
