Balfour Beatty has won a Gold Award,and was shortlisted for the Most Considerate Site for a Lancashire project at the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s 2016 National Site Awards.

Its award-winning project was the construction of an extension to Runshaw College in Euxton Lane Chorley for the Science and Engineering departments.

The award, presented at The Lowry Hotel in Manchester, was given within the category of sites with a project value of between £500k to £5m.

Over 3,500 guests from construction sites of all different sizes are attending award ceremonies during April at venues in Edinburgh, London and Manchester.

The annual awards recognise the highest levels of consideration and care shown by sites registered with the Considerate Constructors Scheme towards their local neighbourhoods, the general public, their workforce and the environment.

They are judged by Scheme Monitors visiting the site and rating their considerate performance against the Code of Considerate Practice.

The Runshaw College project team was commended for its outstanding community engagement, immaculate appearance, workforce safety and environmental consideration.

Scheme chairman Mike Petter said: “Congratulations to Balfour Beatty on achieving a Gold Award and being shortlisted for the 
overall title of Most Considerate Site.

“This is an exceptional achievement and highlights how Considerate Constructors Scheme-registered sites are continually raising standards way above and beyond statutory 
requirements.”
