Barhale win Gold Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) National Site Award30th September 2020
We are delighted to announce that Barhale’s Southern Region has been awarded a Gold Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) National Site Award for the work it is delivering on behalf of Affinity Water on the Copthall Cutting project.
The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a not-for-profit, independent organisation founded to raise standards in the construction industry.
The works at Copthall Cutting were required to divert an existing 600mm diameter clean water trunk main that lies in the path of the future HS2 rail line. These works included open trench excavation, shaft construction, tunnelling under the existing railway lines and reconnection to the existing network.
Barhale’s Framework Manager, Josh Stitt was delighted at the efforts that went into achieving the Considerate Constructor Gold. “Winning this award demonstrates the team’s exceptional approach to considerate practice,” he said. “Mitigating the impact of the works in this sensitive area was vital to the success of the project, and in doing so there has been some brilliant engagement work with the local community.
“The commitments shown in respect to the environment, safety and the workforce were exemplary and it is great to have them recognised with this award.”
Ben Hayward, Programme Manager at Affinity Water said, “We want to warmly congratulate Barhale for winning the Gold Considerate Constructors Scheme National Site Award. The works the Barhale teams have been carrying out on behalf of Affinity Water on the Copthall Cutting project, were technically complex to do but they managed to show respect for the local community and the environment while assuring the safety of their own workforce. It’s a significant achievement for Barhale to win this national award. Well done and we look forward to continue working with Barhale on our future schemes and building on this award.”
