Kier Sheffield has been awarded gold at the first ever Considerate Constructors Scheme National Company Awards.
The Awards are designed to recognise the commitment of construction companies to being considerate, responsible neighbours when carrying out work and their contribution to improving the image of the construction industry nationally.
Kier is the first repairs and maintenance company in the country to join the scheme’s company registration initiative and the first to receive the top prize.
Kier regional managing director for maintenance, Simon Bullen, said: “We strive to carry out our work to the highest quality while working alongside the local community ensuring that any disruption is kept to an absolute minimum.We work in neighbourhoods across the city and do everything we can to ensure we are responsible, respectful and safe. We are delighted with achieving gold and we look forward to continually improving and evolving our good practices further over the coming months.”
Considerate Constructors Scheme chairman, Robert Biggs, said: “The nature of Kier’s activities means constant interaction with housing tenants, from the initial booking-in process to the completion of the required work.
“In every phase, Kier demonstrated real care and consideration towards tenants. Cleanliness at each location was an absolute priority, with extensive protection afforded to interiors and all waste taken back to base for recycling. The whole operation is extremely well run.”
