The Galliford Try Highways team responsible for the delivery of A46/A5360 Anstey Lane improvements on behalf of Leicestershire County Council has been lauded at the national Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) Awards, winning the prize for the Most Considerate Site in the £7.5m-£10m bracket.
The project scope involved upgrading connectivity between the A5630 and A46, reducing congestion and improving road links between the city of Leicester and the wider county to increase capacity and improve journey times.
Galliford Try is a Partner of the CCS, which carries out regular audits to ensure that all sites promote a positive image of construction through appearance, respecting the community, protecting the environment, working safety, valuing their workforce and sharing and promoting best practice. The National Site Awards celebrate exceptional achievement and recognise those sites that have made the greatest contribution towards raising standards in construction.
As part of the CCS process, the team was awarded two innovations by inspectors in the Safety and Workforce categories. The team also carried out local community work, which included helping a local charity with food donations and supported a school with its outdoor playing area renovation and a flooding issue.
David Lowery, Managing Director for Galliford Try Highways, commented: "As a business we are proud of our record, achievements and collaboration with the Considerate Constructors Scheme and the part it plays in helping to drive standards across our business, which in turn allows us to push boundaries and innovate in new ways.
"Our continued collaboration with our clients centres on delivering lasting benefits to the communities in which we work and continuing to raise the bar across industry. The whole team at Anstey Lane richly deserve this recognition for their efforts, which were above and beyond, and I congratulate them on their achievement."
