Site Manager Robert Chadwick was nominated for his site at Henning Gardens in Top Valley. The former disused garage site is now host to eight two-bedroom family homes, providing much needed accommodation and improving the surrounding environment for local people.

The Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) is a national initiative, set up by the construction industry to improve its image. Construction sites and companies that register with the scheme are monitored against a strict set of standards, designed to encourage best practice, beyond the statutory requirements of any building site.

David Woodhead, Managing Director at Robert Woodhead Ltd, said: “We’re delighted that our Site Manager, Robert Chadwick, has been presented with a Bronze award after scoring 41/50 on the independent assessment.

“This is his second national site award and goes to show how significant the Scheme is for us as a company. It is important that we constantly improve our Considerate Constructor’s Scheme scores to help make building a better experience for all.”

Assessors from CCS look at a number of areas related to how the site is managed. Site managers are expected to demonstrate how considerate the construction has been to the general public, the workforce and the local environment.

Each of the four Building a Better Nottingham sites Robert Woodhead has worked on over the past year have been assessed by CCS on appearance, respecting the community, protecting the environment and safety.
