On the 31st of March the Kier Cornerstone Team went to London to collect a Silver Award as recognition for the work the team has completed in setting a prime example of “Considerate Constructor”
Construction sites, companies and suppliers voluntarily register with the scheme and agree to abide by the Code of Considerate practice, designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements.
The scheme is concerned about any area of construction activity that may have a direct or indirect impact on the image of the industry as a whole. The main areas fall into 3 categories: the general public, the workforce and the environment.
For Kier, senior project manager Andy Plain said: “We at Cornerstone take pride in how we portray construction to the outside community. We want to make a good permanent impact on our community. Not only with the finished building that can be enjoyed but also put time and effort into the community.
“We have been involved with St Catherine’s Hospice, both raising money and carrying out maintenance repairs free of charge. We have been actively involved in Pound hill Junior School with Hoarding completion and carrying maintenance work Free of charge.
“Kier also take pride in looking after our workforce by providing excellent welfare facilities, taking an interest in their wellbeing and ensuring that safety is our number one priority.”
