Costain has won a Gold Award at the prestigious Considerate Constructors Scheme’s 2016 National Site Awards, for its project to construct a new bypass from the M6 to the Heysham link road.
The award, presented at The Lowry Hotel, Manchester, was given within the category of sites with a project value of £10m and over.
More than 3,500 guests from construction sites of all different sizes are attending award ceremonies between April 11 and 29 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 local 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.
The Heysham to M6 Link Road project involved constructing a long awaited connection between Heysham to junction 34 of the M6 – 4.8km of two lane dual carriageway with a footpath and cycleway.
The site team was commended for its outstanding community engagement, immaculate appearance, workforce safety and environmental consideration.
Scheme chairman Mike Petter said: “Congratulations to Costain 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.”
