The Considerate Constructors Scheme National Site Awards recognise the highest-performing construction sites against the scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice which monitors how considerate the site is being towards their local community, environment and workforce.

This year’s awards were announced online due to restrictions relating to coronavirus.

The 2020 awards apply to registered CCS construction sites which completed in 2019.

To achieve a CCS National Site Award requires high performance across the CCS’s Code of Considerate Practice, with only 694 National Site Awards presented from a total of 6026 eligible sites.

As well as the nine Most Considerate Site Award winners, there were 292 Bronze, 266 Silver and 118 Gold, as well as nine Most Considerate Site Runners-Up presented.

For a full list of all 2020 National Site Award winners, please visit the CCS website here or view winners via the Construction Map here.

CCS Chief Executive Amanda Long said: “On behalf of the CCS, I would like to congratulate all 2020 National Site Award winners, with an extra special congratulations to the winners of the ‘2020 Most Considerate Site Award’.

“Whilst it has been unfortunate that we were unable to host in-person award ceremonies due to coronavirus, we look forward to seeing how sites will be celebrating their achievements through social media and other communications.

“Achieving any level of CCS National Site Award requires dedication, effort and commitment to raising standards of considerate construction and we are delighted that many CCS-registered sites have achieved the exceptional level of performance in order to receive a National Site Award this year.

“The CCS awards are fundamentally about how the construction industry can achieve more in raising its standards so our local communities, the environment and those that work across the industry receive positive engagement before, during and after a construction project takes place.

“It is about putting the community at the heart of considerate construction, and we look forward to more construction activity performing to such high standards and even higher standards in the future.”
