We are delighted to have won a Gold Award at the prestigious Considerate Constructors Scheme’s 2016 National Site Awards for Lexicon - Islington's tallest canalside tower.
The award, presented at The Mermaid, London on Tuesday 26th April, was given within the category of sites with a project value of £10m and over.
Over 3,500 guests from construction sites of all different sizes are attending award ceremonies during 11th -29th April at venues in Edinburgh, London and Manchester.
The annual awards recognise the highest levels of consideration and care shown by sites registered with the Considerate Constructors Scheme towards their neighbourhoods, the general public, their workforce and the environment. They are judged by Scheme Monitors visiting the site and rating their considerate performance against the Code of Considerate Practice.
Our 261 City Road project involved the construction of three multi-storey apartment blocks, with some commercial units. The site team was commended for its outstanding community engagement, immaculate appearance, workforce safety and environmental consideration.
Hellen Stevens, Scheme Monitor for Lexicon said: “It is a pleasure to visit a site so well organised and with a management team so committed to demonstrating the highest levels of good practice. This site is a beacon amongst residential developments and is certainly a leader in construction industry as a whole.”
Scheme Chief Executive Edward Hardy said: “Congratulations to Mount Anvil on achieving a Gold Award. This is an exceptional achievement and highlights how Considerate Constructors Scheme-registered sites are continually raising standards way above and beyond statutory requirements.”
Peter Burslem, Operations Director, Mount Anvil said: “We’re delighted to receive this award, which reflects the huge emphasis we place – within the Mount Anvil team and our supply chain - on world-class health and safety, open communication with the local community, and building to exceptional standards.”
About the Considerate Constructors Scheme
The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a non-profit-making, independent organisation founded in 1997 by the construction industry to improve its image.
Construction sites, companies and suppliers voluntarily register with the Scheme and agree to abide by the Code of Considerate Practice. The Code commits those registered with the Scheme to care about appearance, respect the community, protect the environment, secure everyone’s safety and value their workforce.
The Scheme is concerned about any area of construction activity that may have a direct or indirect impact on the image of the industry as a whole. The main areas of concern fall into three categories: the general public, the workforce and the environment.
Last year the Scheme introduced the Best Practice Hub, a comprehensive online resource showcasing best practice in the construction industry. The Best Practice Hub hosts a wealth of tips, expertise, guidance and case studies to help constructors learn from their peers and raise industry standards.
