Ultimate collaboration across supply chains will be recognised with highest honours by the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s Ultra Site Awards 2019.
The awards take place on 18 July at Plaisterers’ Hall in central London and will be presented by Ann Bentley, the Construction Leadership Council’s lead on Supply Chain and Business Models.
The overall objective for Ultra Sites is to achieve ever greater integration of a contractor’s supply chain to meet and exceed the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice. Being the highest level of attainment in consideration and best practice, they are the pinnacle of excellence across the construction industry.
It is the second dedicated awards programme for Ultra Sites, following the success of the inaugural awards in 2018. This year, there will be nine award categories and, for the first time, the top-performing supplier within six awards of the categories (see those marked *) will also be eligible for an individual recognition award.
The Award categories are:
Client Recognition Award
Community Engagement Award*
Constructions First Impressions Award
Environmental Best Practice Award*
Fairness, Inclusion and Respect Award*
Future Constructors Award*
Workforce Wellbeing Award*
Innovation of the Year Award
One Award winner from the nine categories will also be recognised with the highest honour, receiving the prestigious title of ‘Ultra Site of the Year’.
Considerate Constructors Scheme Chief Executive Edward Hardy said: “This year’s Ultra Site Awards represent an exciting development in the evolution of Ultra Sites as the way to engage in raising standards of considerate construction across the entire supply chain.
“The realisation by leaders across our industry in both large scale and small scale projects shows how more than ever before we can work together more effectively and efficiency to drive forward best practice and greater collaboration across the industry.
“Ultra Sites achieves this goal and we’re incredibly excited to be honouring the very highest-performing at the upcoming awards ceremony in July.”
Ann Bentley, the Construction Leadership Council’s lead on supply chain and business model, added: “I’m thrilled to be presenting the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s 2019 Ultra Site Awards.
“Ultra Sites are an essential way for our industry to collaborate and realise the benefits of working together, and I look forward to presenting the very best Ultra Sites with their national accolade.
“People often say that nothing ever changes in the construction industry, but in my working career the Considerate Constructors Scheme has made a tangible difference to the way that sites are operated and the public's perception of our industry. I am excited to see the continued development of the Scheme.”
