News: Bramall Constuction brings home top award


A development project in Scarborough by Rotherham social housing contractor and developer Bramall Construction has been named the UK's Most Considerate Site 2011.

The Manvers firm took home the top prize at this year's Considerate Constructors Scheme awards, following its work delivering new flats at Oxcliff Court, Barrowcliff.

The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a national initiative aimed at improving the image of the construction industry and sees development projects and companies signing up to a Code of Considerate Practice to ensure they go above and beyond their legal requirements when supporting communities and protecting the environment.

Bramall's Oxcliff scheme topped the list of around 8,500 development sites from across the UK that were eligible for the annual awards.

Monitors gave the Oxcliff scheme 39 out of a possible 40 points following visits to the site in May and September 2010 paying tribute to the team's dedication to supporting the local community.

Bramall's team maintained a close relationship with neighbouring residents throughout the building project. The company sent out regular newsletters to keep residents informed of progress and supported a community fun day to help local people raise funds for a playground development in the local area.

The development's site cabin was offered out for use by the wider community with the police and community support officers using the space as a regular base. The company also arranged a pick-up and delivery service from a local shop for elderly residents who were affected when a path close to the site had to be temporarily closed.

Staff have also looked to reduce the environmental impact of the project, doing everything from planting trees to offset the carbon footprint of the site to recycling ink cartridges used in office printers.

Neil Baxter, Managing Director of Bramall Yorkshire, said: "This is a fantastic achievement for Bramall Construction and one which we are very proud of.

"The award shows how committed we are to supporting communities where we work in every way we can.

"We have been able to deliver high quality, affordable homes in a manner which has won the support of local people.

"I would like to congratulate everyone who has been involved in this project."

Bramall's Sandybed Court development, also in Scarborough, received a bronze in this year’s Considerate Constructors Scheme awards.

In total Keepmoat's delivery companies, which include Bramall Construction, Frank Haslam Milan, Keepmoat Homes and Milnerbuild, took home 12 awards, including one gold, five silver, five bronze and the top Most Considerate Site award.

The results mean that the company has secured 260 Considerate Constructors Awards in the past 10 years.
