Refurbishment projects completed in 2015 for eight clients were recently recognised with Gold, Silver and Bronze certificates in the Considerate Constructors Scheme National Site Awards.

Since 1999, the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) has been rewarding the UK's most considerate sites for the contribution they have made towards improving the image of construction. Construction sites, companies and suppliers voluntarily register with the scheme and agree to follow the Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements.

Innovative measures are applauded by the judges and for the second time since Overbury’s involvement with the scheme, the panel presented Overbury a Gold award complemented by a further five Silver and two Bronze awards.

Located on a busy corner site in Vauxhall, London, the project that won Gold called for the internal refurbishment of three floors in a 1960s residential block, beneath two occupied floors. The site team took maximum advantage of its prominent position to demonstrate considerate construction at work. The overall appearance was described by the visiting CCS Monitor as exceptional, and included spotlessly clean approaches, clear and attractive signage and a professional looking workforce.

The standards being achieved inside the site were also communicated externally using notice boards and newsletters, highlighting waste control and energy conservation levels. Despite its relatively short duration, the site supported two charities and arranged visits to local schools to give safety presentations.

Other winning projects include Overbury’s work across the country for the likes of BNP Paribas, HSBC, Ernst & Young, Rugby Free School and Bennetts Insurance.

CCS Chairman Mike Petter commented on the day, saying: “It is our privilege to reward the efforts of all those involved in projects which set the bar in terms of considerate construction."
