Burry Port Community Primary School has been rewarded for improving the image of the industry and has received the 'Silver' Award at the Considerate Constructors Scheme National Site Awards 2016.
Over 3000 guests attended 13 award ceremonies staged in Edinburgh, Manchester and London, where the Scheme rewarded the most considerate registered sites of 2015. The awards recognise the hard work and effort that has been made by all registered sites, large and small, which have raised the bar for considerate construction and set the benchmark for others to follow.
A total of 430 Bronze, 293 Silver and 173 Gold Awards were presented to sites by leading construction representatives in front of an industry-wide audience of over 3000 guests. This year for the first time ever, site value bandings were introduced to enable registered sites to be considered alongside projects of similar value.
Debbie Williams, Heather Davies, Kelly Edwards and Tania Fisher attended the award ceremony at the Mermaid Theatre in London where the result was revealed. A score of 43 out of 50 at the last monitor visit earned Burry Port a Silver award from the scheme. The award was presented by Bill Hill, Chief Executive of the Lighthouse Club.
Jon Williams, Business Development Director said: "As a company we are absolutely delighted to be recognised as a leader in the promotion of considerate construction practices on a UK level. The whole team at Burry Port have done an incredible job in maintaining and surpassing many of the standards we expect on every project. For the project and team to be nationally recognised among such a field of highly prestigious projects is testament to their efforts and commitment."
