Contractor bags 21 National Site Awards

ROBERTSON Group has announced it has won a “record” number of awards at the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s (CCS) National Site Awards.

21 Robertson projects received recognition with Gold, Silver or Bronze awards. Six sites were honoured with the highest accolade, a Gold award, including Annickbank Innovation Campus in Irvine, where construction work was led by Robertson Central West and Robertson Civil Engineering. The £3.2 million project was also named runner-up for Most Considerate Site.

Robertson Tayside took Gold for Baldragon Academy in Dundee, while Robertson Central East was awarded Gold for the £35 million Stirling Care Village. Robertson Group also collected its CCS Ultra Site Certificate of Recognition for the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC).

Elliott Robertson, chief operating officer at Robertson Group said, “At Robertson, we pride ourselves in adhering to the highest possible industry standards to deliver projects that transform local communities, working closely with them to bring about tailored solutions that will have real and lasting benefits for the neighbours of our sites, the local workforce and the environment.

“It’s a wonderful achievement to be recognised by the CCS for an outstanding number of projects, competing against thousands of sites across the country in awards that recognise positive role models for the construction industry. Our achievement is testament to the commitment of our entire project delivery team.”

Robertson Partnership Homes picked up two Silver awards and one Bronze award for its affordable homes projects across central Scotland. A total of seven sites received Silver awards, including Huntershill Sports Hub Facility in Bishopbriggs, Perth Theatre and UHI Student Accommodation in Elgin. The sites of two new Morayshire distilleries were among eight projects awarded Bronze – Glenfiddich Distillery and The New Macallan Distillery and Visitor Centre.

Several sites awarded – including Annickbank Innovation Campus – were procured through Scape Group’s National Major Works Framework, now superseded by Major Works Scotland, part of the (Scape) National Construction framework, and delivered by Robertson in partnership with Willmott Dixon.

Victoria Brambini, MD of Scape Procure said, “It is fantastic to see these projects recognised for the outstanding work undertaken on site. The entire team at Robertson, supported by local supply chains, have not only gone above and beyond on these important public sector projects, but have also kept their local communities engaged. The commitment demonstrated on these projects serves as a very positive example of the standards the entire industry should strive for.”
