Winvic has been acclaimed for its contribution to improving the image of the construction industry by winning four prestigious Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) National Site Awards. The annual awards recognise those top-performing Scheme registered sites that have raised the bar in considerate construction as scored against the Scheme’s five-point code of considerate practice which focuses on “Care about Appearance”, “Respect the Community”, “Protect the Environment”, “Secure everyone’s Safety” and “Value their Workforce.
Winvic’s ongoing efforts to being more considerate towards the public, the workforce and the environment was recognised at the CCS National Site Awards ceremony held in London, scooping Silver awards for industrial schemes Geary’s Bakery and Enterprise Units, Optimus Point Leicester and Carbon 207, Middlemarch. Bronze awards were also achieved for Wide Lane, Southampton and DC3 Prologis Park, Lichfield sites.
“We strive to give back to the community, the general public and environment wherever possible. As well as ensuring our staff welfare, facilities and training opportunities are of high quality.”

These latest accolades come off the back of the hat-trick of awards won at last year’s ceremony which saw Winvic take home two silver awards for the Southgates student accommodation scheme in Leicester and The London Taxi Company headquarters at Ansty Park, Coventry, while DC1 at Prologis Park, Ryton was given a Bronze award.
Jackie Hall, Compliance Manager at Winvic who has been supporting Winvic’s project team’s since joining the company in 2001 commented “We are proud of this latest recognition of our efforts to continually raise the bar even higher in terms of considerate construction. These prestigious accolades are an acknowledgement to the entire project teams at each site for their consistent hard work and high marks throughout the CCS reporting process.”
“We strive to give back to the community, the general public and environment wherever possible. As well as ensuring our staff welfare, facilities and training opportunities are of high quality. These are all factors which have enabled us to achieve such a professional image.” said Ian Goodhead, HSEQ Director.
The Considerate Constructors Scheme, which was set up in 1999, assesses over the lifecycle of a project the measures put in place to minimise the impact on the local community and environment, while at the same time providing good working conditions.
The annual awards recognise the sites which have made the greatest contribution towards improving the image of the construction industry.
