Connect Plus Services announces that, following the Leatherhead depot’s assessment for its performance against the Code of Considerate Construction, it has secured a Bronze award as one of the very best performing sites from across the UK at this year’s prestigious awards at Plaisterers Hall in London.
Alana Murphy, Operations and Maintenance Manager, and Mark Jepson, Shift Manager, represented Connect Plus Services at the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s National Site Awards event which every year recognises those sites registered with the Scheme that have raised the bar for considerate construction.
The Scheme’s monitors visited offices and depots, and used a checklist to confirm a score against each of the five Code categories – appearance, community, environment, safety and workforce.
In its recent report, the Leatherhead depot scored an impressive 44 (of 50), which sees it retain its Performance Beyond Compliance rating.
The monitor noted that respect for the community “continues to be exceptional” and Leatherhead’s engagement with a local primary school “has blossomed into a very valuable community contribution”. It was also highlighted that the workforce is “valued and the standard of care is exceptional”.
Protection for the environment and the depot’s approach to securing all stakeholders’ health and safety were also positively reported.
This is an exceptional achievement and recognises those sites that have made the greatest contribution towards improving the image of construction.
