Contractors win UK award for Barry housing development

The Considerate Constructors Scheme has awarded Weston Contractors with a bronze award for the construction of a Newydd Housing Association development in Ffordd Elin, Barry.

The national Considerate Constructors Scheme recognised Weston Contractors with the bronze award for their excellent standards of consideration towards their neighbours, their workforce and the environment whilst constructing the Ffordd Elin housing development in Barry for Newydd last year.

During construction Weston Contractors and Newydd engaged with young people at Palmerston Primary School in Barry to encourage them to stay safe in and around the Ffordd Elin construction site, talking about potential hazards they may find and what to do in different situations.

Weston contractors also worked with Newydd’s Community Team to renovate a communal lounge in a nearby supported property that deals with young vulnerable tenants.

This new lounge has now become a fully furnished common room with I.T. facilities where training and employment support can be offered.

The Considerate Constructors Scheme’s National Site Awards are only given to the highest scoring 7.5 per cent of registered development sites. Weston Contractors were presented with their award on March 20th at an awards ceremony in London.

Julian Weston, Director of Weston Contractors said, “We are thrilled to have won the Considerate Constructors Scheme bronze award. I would like to thank my employees for their hard work on this development as well as all our partners for their continued support.”

Paul Roberts, Chief Executive of Newydd said, “We are delighted that Weston Contractors have won this well-deserved award. Construction can cause considerable disruption however this award recognises Weston Contractors’ hard work and consideration for the local community in which they worked.”

Commenting on the awards, the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s Chairman, Robert Biggs, said: “Previously we have seen some remarkable sites and this year is no exception. Each year we are delighted to see these standards being maintained and often exceeded, even throughout these tough times.”
