THE Considerate Constructors Scheme – the national Scheme to improve the image of the construction industry – will be hosting the 2016 National Site Awards at ceremonies throughout the UK this month.

The Scheme will be rewarding the top-performing registered sites that have demonstrated the highest level of considerate construction towards the public, the workforce and the environment. This year’s awards apply to sites that completed in 2015.

Over 3500 guests from construction sites of all different sizes will be attending award ceremonies during 11-29 April in Edinburgh, London and Manchester.

For the first time, ‘value bands’ are being introduced to enable sites to be assessed based on their project value. The value bands are: Less than £500k; £500k to <£5m; £5m to <£10m; £10m and over.

Out of thousands of registered sites, over 900 have been selected to win Bronze, Silver or Gold Awards. One Gold Award winner per value band will also be given the prestigious title of ‘Most Considerate Site 2016’, with all shortlisted sites for this accolade receiving Runner-up Awards.

Mike Petter, chairman of the Considerate Constructors Scheme, said, “Award-winning sites have demonstrated exceptionally high levels of best practice in meeting and exceeding the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice. This year is the largest-ever awards to date – a true testament to the outstanding achievements being made by Scheme registered sites across the UK.”
