Glencar Construction has received a Silver Award from the Considerate Constructors Scheme for their recently completed Iron Mountain project in Canning Town, London. The prestigious award was presented at an awards night held recently at Plaisterers Hall in central London. The award recognises the project team’s performance beyond compliance for various initiatives put in place to enhance safety and the environment as well as efforts in promoting considerate construction to the community and workforce.

The CCS site report summary noted that “The site is set up in a professional manner and consideration for their client is reciprocated by the excellent working relationship and sharing of facilities to their mutual benefit.”

“Community relations are exceptional with support for charity and local businesses apparent… Safety procedures on site are excellent but the amount of training organised on a short project has elevated the skill base and warrants an exceptional score. Consideration for the workforce is excellent.”

Glencar project manager Gareth Jones cited excellent input from construction graduates Thomas Murphy and Ronan Murphy in contributing to fresh initiatives in support of the CCS scheme.

The Iron Mountain project involved the design and construction of a new warehouse with adjoining canopy and internal two storey offices to house the client’s relocated transport operation.
