John Perkins Construction picked up two National Site Awards at the 2017 Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) Awards, receiving industry recognition for its good practice in boosting community engagement, treating its staff well, and reducing environmental impact.
The team struck gold for the second year running, winning a Gold Award for its £2.4 million restoration works at Bristol Harbourside's Underfall Yard. Paul Glennon and the site team were recognised for their excellent site management during a complex project.
Underfall Yard is an operational yard with many tenant businesses, and the site contains a public thoroughfare. Not only did Paul and the team ensure that crucial parts of the site remained open to the public, they also organised tours and school visits so that the local community could stay involved with the project.
Success at the 2017 CCS Awards builds on last year's Gold Award win for Hayden Pickett and the site team for their sensitive management of a £1 million project to create a new Post-16 Centre at Fosse Way School in Radstock.
Not one to rest on his laurels, Hayden scooped a Bronze Award at this year's ceremony, too. He and the site team at Kingswood School in Bath were honoured for their conscientious work during the £1.3 million construction of a new boarding house at the school.
Rupert Perkins, Contracts Director of John Perkins Construction, comments: "It was fantastic to be in a room with so many industry leaders at the CCS Awards ceremony in London. To receive two National Site Awards is a huge honour. Balancing the demands of the client and community with the commercial imperatives of each project can be challenging. But the positive feedback we receive from clients and the public - as well as recognition from prestigious industry award bodies - makes it all worthwhile."
