Building, painting and maintenance specialist Seddon Construction – which has its head office in Farnworth, Bolton – has scooped a trio of national Considerate Constructors awards for its considerate and community-focused approach to three North West projects.
The Considerate Constructors Scheme National Site Awards are presented to construction teams displaying excellent standards of consideration towards their neighbours, their workforce, the general public and the environment.
Seddon Construction secured bronze awards for the following three projects:
- A scheme to build 18 new affordable homes for New Charter Housing Trust at Dukinfield, Tameside, which was completed in February 2013
- Landscaping and boundary works in Walton carried out as part of a maintenance project for Liverpool Mutual Homes
- A re-roofing scheme for homes at the Chesham estate, Bury, for Six Town Housing
All three were independently assessed against the Considerate Constructors Code of Considerate Practice and were found to have achieved excellent standards of consideration towards their neighbours, their workforce and the environment.
Seddon Construction managing director Jonathan Seddon says: "I would like to congratulate everyone involved in working on these schemes. This success in the Considerate Constructors Scheme National Site Awards emphasises the care and consideration for local communities and the environment which is so important to our site management teams.”
David Watson, chairman of the Considerate Constructors Scheme, says: "Once again even throughout these tough times for our industry, many sites have excelled to not only maintain standards, but surpass what has been achieved in previous years.
"The National Site Awards are an excellent showcase for these sites, and give the industry the opportunity to reward those site teams that have gone that extra mile. I wish to congratulate all those who have received an award and for their contribution towards improving the image of construction.”
