Five construction sites named the most considerate in national awards which return after a four year break

Five construction sites across England and Wales have been named as the most considerate to neighbours, the environment and staff by a national body.

The Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) has announced the winners of the National Site Awards 2024 – reintroduced by popular demand after a four-year break.

Balfour won the National Site Award for a site under £5 million 

Out of over 5,500 eligible sites, the construction projects that stood out as at the peak of performance were named in categories according project value.

In the category for a site under £5 million, Tyn-y-Bryn Bridge, in Tonyrefail, by Balfour Beatty was named the winner.

Clements – Hounslow Infill, in London, by Wates Residential and Southsea Coastal Scheme, Frontage 4, in Portsmouth, by VolkerStevin and Boskalis Westminster, both won the category for a site between  £5 million and £50 million.

And Eden Grove, in Stains-upon-Thames, by Berkeley St Edward won the next category up to £100 million and NTT LON1 Phase 2 works, in London, by Laing O’Rourke was named the winner of the site of over £100 million.

“Highest levels of performance”

Amit Oberoi, Executive Chairman of the CCS, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have brought back the National Site Awards format for 2024. These Awards are much loved by the construction industry, and we received an overwhelming show of support for their return.

Laing O’ Rourke won the National Site Award for the site over £100 million 

“Winning a CCS National Site Award is the mark of the highest levels of performance in the three areas of our Code of Considerate Practice: Respect the Community, Care for the Environment, Value the Workforce.

“Our Awards are very selective, and the bar was set extremely high. Only the top performing sites of the UK have been receiving an Award.

“On behalf of the CCS, I would like to congratulate all our National Site Awards winners, with extra special congratulations to the winners of the Most Considerate Site of 2024.”

During this year’s edition, the CCS also recognised 522 Bronze, 121 Silver and 66 Gold Awards winners. 

The National Site Awards recognise site performance against the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice, which audits and scores how considerate a site is towards their local community, the environment and their workforce.

The awards recognise site performance recorded during 2023 and were presented over six ceremonies in Manchester, Edinburgh and London with a combined total of nearly 2000 guests.

Each ceremony opened with a recorded message to the industry from Lee Rowley MP, Minister of State for Housing & Planning and was presented by an organisation in the construction landscape: the Royal Town Planning Institute, SCAPE Procure, the Northern Powerhouse Partnership, the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education and the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland.
