Double Silver for the Raymond Brown Team

Two Raymond Brown site managers were awarded silver Considerate Constructors Scheme Awards 2017 at a prestigious ceremony on 6th April.

Mike Castle from Raymond Brown Building won silver for his work at Henry Cort Community College in Fareham; a recladding and refurbishment project in a live secondary school. The college’s site manager, Andy Ford, stated, ‘any issues have been dealt with swiftly and appropriately for which I know the college are very grateful. Raymond Brown truly are “Considerate Contractors”.

Nick Gibb from Raymond Brown Construction also won an award for his work at the RNLI Brixham pontoon upgrade project. The works included removing the existing pontoon and replacing it with a new improved design to ensure the pontoon remains fully functional throughout all weather and tidal conditions. The site performed beyond compliance by scoring at least 7 in each of the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s Code of Practice.

The lunchtime ceremony was hosted at Plaisterers Hall in London with awards presented to bronze, silver and gold award winners from across the industry and different categories. Nobody knew which award they would receive and the team was thrilled to achieve two silvers.

The awards ceremonies, which attract over 3000 guests from construction sites of all different sizes across the UK, were held from 20 March – 7 April in Edinburgh, London and Manchester.

Edward Hardy, Chief Executive of the Scheme, commented, ‘The National Site Awards are one of the highlights of the industry year and an annual opportunity for the Scheme to celebrate and reward the UK’s most considerate sites. The awards continue to go from strength to strength and this year is no exception, with sites more determined than ever before to improve the image of the industry in increasingly innovative and impressive ways.’
