Winvic Collects Nine Considerate Constructors Scheme National Site Awards

Posted on May 20, 2024 in Award Announcement

Team members from Winvic Construction Ltd, a leading main contractor that specialises in the design and delivery of private and public sector construction and civil engineering projects have attended ceremonies in London and Manchester and have been awarded a total of nine Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) National Site Awards.

The news follows December’s announcement when Winvic was awarded six CCS Leading Lights 2023 Awards

The National Site Awards recognise the efforts that constructors have made to be the most considerate neighbours and the winning Winvic sites represent the pinnacle of considerate construction, setting the benchmark for others to follow.

Sites are awarded with a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award depending on their performance against the CCS Code of Considerate Practice, within similar project value bandings to ensure fairness. The Winvic sites that have been recognised for creating value in the communities surrounding them, and being respectful of the public, the workforce, and the environment achieved five Bronze Awards, three Silver and one Gold.
