A Sheffield building firm has been named as the UK’s most considerate company at a construction industry awards ceremony.
Local authority housing repairs and maintenance contractor Kier Sheffield was handed the honour at the recent Considerate Constructors Scheme awards.
It was joint winner of the award, along with commercial refurbishment and refitting company Elev8 Interiors.
Scott Murray, Kier Sheffield’s head of services, said: “We are proud to be awarded most considerate company in the UK.
“Kier Sheffield was the first contractor in the UK to register with the Considerate Constructors Scheme for day-to-day repairs on both housing and corporate buildings, and we take pride in being a respectful and understanding service provider.
“This award is recognition of the hard work our people have put in to raise the standards of the repairs service for Sheffield Council over the last few years.”
The judges said Kier Sheffield was a ‘fantastic example’ to the industry.
