The National Site Awards recognise construction sites across the UK and showcase the contribution companies make to improve the image of the construction industry.    

VolkerLaser won bronze for their work on the Clifton External Wall Insulation project. The site won the award by demonstrating full commitment towards the CCS scheme and recognising the day to day impact the project had upon the local community. By integrating the requirements of the scheme into the site management plan, the project team were able to consistently achieve excellent levels of compliance and good practice towards the community and its own workforce.

Philip Parslow, Senior HSEQ Manager at VolkerLaser said: “We are delighted to win this award as it shows the tremendous importance VolkerLaser places on working well in the community, with our workforce and in the environment.

 "We are very proud of the work our site teams are doing and work to ensure it continues in all current and future projects.”

During the 12 award ceremonies a total of 798 awards were presented with 99 achieving Gold Awards. 280 Silver and 387 Bronze were also won. In 2015, over 8,900 sites were eligible to win an award through their registration to the CCS.  

The CCS provides construction sites, companies and suppliers the opportunity to voluntarily register with the scheme and agree to abide by the code of considerate practice, designed to encourage best practice throughout the industry.
