Galliford Try’s businesses have received recognition at the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) National Site Awards with 29 winners in the gold, silver and bronze categories, following the conclusion of the prize giving last week.
The awards are for the highest-scoring sites which participate in the CCS accreditation process, which assesses sites for the contribution they have made towards improving the image of construction. The scheme looks at the measures a site has put in place to be more considerate towards local neighbourhoods and the public, the workforce, and the environment.
In total, Galliford Try received eight golds including awards for Morrison Construction's Anderson High School in Shetland, which claimed the highest score in our business and the Tornagrain Pump Away Scheme phase two; Infrastructure's Smart Motorways team and the A611 access site in Hucknall; Building's East Street and St Vincent's Walk sites in Southampton and the Anchorage House and Croydon University Hospital sites in London.
In addition, there were a further 10 silver awards, including ones for Galliford Try Partnerships’s sites at Tile Hill and Arden Quarter and 11 bronzes.
Peter Truscott, Chief Executive of Galliford Try plc, commented: “We are a committed partner of the CCS scheme which has done a lot of good in improving the image of construction over the past 20 years. Creating a positive impact on communities is important, not just in terms of our contribution to the built environment, but also the way we can engage for the better while we are working within them.”
