Considerate Constructors Congratulated

The Considerate Constructors Scheme - the national scheme established by the construction industry to improve its image - has honoured the Most Considerate Companies and Suppliers at this year’s National Awards.

Four companies were presented with the top award of Most Considerate Company 2017. They are: CR Civil Engineering (in the annual turnover of £10m and over category); Elev8 Interiors (in the annual turnover of £3.5m to <£10m category); Clearly Renovations (in the annual turnover between £250k to <£3.5m category) and Sheene Contract Solutions (in the annual turnover of under £250k category).

 

Supplier

TCi (GB) triumphed as the Most Considerate Supplier 2017, making them the firm the second registered supplier to win this title since Supplier Registration was introduced in 2014.

The award ceremonies took place on November 2 and 3 at the Four Seasons Hotel in London.

 

Gold, Silver and Bronze

In total, 22 Gold, 37 Silver and 55 Bronze Awards were presented to registered companies, while 3 Gold and 5 Silver Awards were presented to registered suppliers.

Considerate Constructors Scheme Executive Chairman Isabel Martinson said: “Each year, the Scheme is amazed by the increasingly innovative and ingenious ways that companies and suppliers devise to elevate their levels of consideration to the community, workforce and environment."

 

Judging notes

CR Civil Engineering Ltd is based in Leicestershire and works throughout the UK carrying out a range of construction services including highways, rail and flood defence projects. This highly considerate team was clearly focused on minimising community disturbance and carried out many goodwill and charitable acts in the neighbourhood.

Elev8 Interiors Ltd is a family-owned business in West Ealing, specialising in building refurbishments, high end residential, commercial work and construction management consultancy services. Elev8’s relentless commitment to pushing the bar in considerate construction has resulted in a number of Scheme National Company Awards, since they first registered with the Scheme seven years ago.

Established for more than 12 years, Clearly Renovations has specialised in high-end residential refurbishments, renovations and alterations in London and the southern counties. Clearly Renovations was highly commended for its innovative approach to branding, using its ‘Clearly’ slogan for a range of meaningful campaigns and initiatives.

Based in Canterbury, Kent, Sheene Contract Solutions works typically with large retail outlets and uses specialist teams including fitters, welders, carpenters and electricians to install specialist catering equipment. This company was praised for its unique operative feedback questionnaire which ensured complete client satisfaction.

TCi (GB) Ltd, whose head office is based in Bideford, Devon, was highly praised by the Scheme for its innovative collaboration with a local furniture manufacturer to produce cardboard workstations as part of an integrated waste management initiative.
