Gold for McGee at CCS 2016 National Site Awards

McGee is celebrating after winning a Gold Award at the prestigious Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) 2016 National Site Awards for its demolition project at 7-10 Hanover Square in Mayfair.

The Considerate Constructors Scheme – the national Scheme which works to improve the image of the construction industry, presented McGee with the Gold Award at The Mermaid, London on Thursday 28th April and was given within the category of sites with a project value of £500k to <£5m.

Over 3,500 guests from construction sites of all different sizes have attended award ceremonies during 11th -29th April at venues in Edinburgh, London and Manchester.  Out of the many thousands of registered sites, only c.900 were selected to win Bronze, Silver or Gold Awards – rewarding the top-performing registered sites that have demonstrated the highest level of considerate construction towards the public, the workforce and the environment.

Working on behalf of Aelton Ltd, c/o Morgan Capital Partners, this central London project required the demolition of a seven-storey office building on the corner of a busy square in a largely commercial part of Mayfair.  The resulting high performance across all parts of the Code categories is a demonstration of the outstanding commitment of this well-managed site.

Marc Byrne, Head of Social Responsibility, said: “We’re delighted to receive a 2016 National Site Gold Award in recognition of McGee’s considerate practices and high standards.  It is also a reflection of our continued commitment to changing the perceptions of our industry. The site team at Hanover Square went over and beyond best practice and this award is a suitable recognition of their hard work and has set the benchmark for all our sites to aspire to.”

Mike Petter, Chairman, CCS, said “It is our privilege to reward the efforts of all those involved in projects which set the bar in terms of considerate construction.  We never fail to be impressed each year by the high levels of innovation and excellence evidenced throughout the industry.

“Each award-winning project serves as a shining example to the industry as to what can be achieved across a range of different sized projects and in all sectors of the industry.  My congratulations to all sites that have received a National Site Award.”

McGee’s One Nine Elms project in Vauxhall was also recognised at the same awards ceremony, taking home a Bronze Award. Read more on this here.
