Eurovia Contracting | Eurovia wins three Considerate Constructors Scheme Awards
Eurovia Contracting has won three Considerate Constructors Scheme Awards and been praised for its contribution to local communities and consideration for public safety.
Eurovia Contracting was given two Silver awards and one Bronze award during a ceremony at The Lowry Hotel, in Salford. The three winning schemes all scored 10 out of 10 in the ‘Respect the Community’ category, for delivering Dementia Friends training to the workforce and operating Dementia Friendly sites.
Judges gave one Silver award for the regeneration of St Peters Street in Derby, which is a busy pedestrian and vehicle route through the city centre. The scheme was praised in the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) site report, which says: “The ‘safety’ score had a wow factor of caring for the safety of the public by additional staff on site looking to ensure dementia-based problem areas were addressed. If only all other companies took time over their sites as this, the industry would be held in a much higher esteem.”
The second Silver award was for a scheme to install a 51m long locally fabricated footbridge in Beeston, Nottingham. The footbridge was installed above the main railway line between Derby and Nottingham, which links the University of Nottingham Campus with the Boots Headquarters.
The CCS report praised the site for the exceptional health and safety systems that were in place to care for the safety of the public, visitors and the workforce.
The Bronze award was for the High Wycombe Town Centre Master Plan scheme which saw the upgrading and remodelling of a 350 metre stretch of highway. The new upgrade works will become a second main route for traffic of all types to travel across the town.
The awards recognise the highest performing companies and suppliers that have demonstrated excellence in relation to the community, the environment and their workforce.
Phil Skegg, Eurovia Contracting Managing Director, said: “Our teams work extremely hard to ensure the safety of the public, visitors and the workforce on and around our sites and to minimise the impact of any live works. To receive two Silvers and one Bronze Award is testament to our teams but, as always, we are committed to finding new ways to improve so that we can achieve Gold next time around.”
