The Most Considerate Constructors

Category: General / 14 May 2014

Ferrovial Agroman has set a new company record for the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) awards, winning seven at the 2014 presentation ceremony.

The awards recognise the top 10% of sites’ in the country for their exceptional standards of consideration towards local neighbourhoods, the general public, the workforce and the environment.

Of the seven awards, the A8 road project between Belfast and Larne in Northern Ireland was the stand out, being recognised as one of the runners-up for the Most Considerate Site of the year.

Ferrovial Agroman UK and Ireland Managing Director Mario Mostoles said every company project aims to leave a legacy as a considerate neighbour.

“Each of our award winning projects have demonstrated in their own unique way what it means to be a successful and considerate neighbour,” said Mr Mostoles.

“It is through these examples and working closely with the community that we are able to leave a legacy in these areas as a considerate constructor.”

Ferrovial Agroman Director of Rail Luis Amorim said the company’s performance at Crossrail has set a best practice standard across the entire project.

“The various Crossrail contracts are based in high density communities throughout the heart of London, requiring exceptional communication and collaboration with the community,” said Mr Amorim.

“We have worked closely with a number of local businesses and charities to minimise any impacts on their day to day operations.”

From London’s city street to the rolling Irish countryside, the A8 project’s pro-active approach to environmental conservation has been described by the Northern Ireland Environment Agency as ‘exemplar, and the way forward’.

Entries are judged on the measures a site has put in place to be considerate towards local neighbourhoods and the public, the workforce, and the environment.

Gold CCS awards go to fewer than the top 1% of the 8500 or so sites registered under the awards scheme.

Ferrovial Agroman Ireland Director Enrique Nieto said the awards confirms the company’s dedication to continuous improvement.

“We are very proud of this achievement, and believe that it serves as recognition for the hard work and determination that Ferrovial Agroman and in particular LFC have shown in trying to improve the image of the construction industry, and enhance its own standards,” said Mr Nieto.
