which is a UK leader in specialist engineering, construction, demolition, decommissioning, remediation and environmental services, has won an astounding five awards at the 2014 City of London Corporation’s Considerate Contractor Scheme Awards.
At the awards ceremony, which is now in its 26th year, Keltbray secured three awards, including the Environmental Award, the Access Award and a Highly Commended Award, for its work at Duke’s Place and Mitre Square, where Keltbray demolished an eight-storey commercial building within a busy inner-city location for Helical Bar. Keltbray was praised for its outstanding environmental performance and provision of access around the site, including lighting and access for the partially sighted and disabled members of the public, plus hoarding and the involvement of a local school in declaring it.
Keltbray secured a further two Gold Awards for work undertaken at London Wall Place and Stone House at Devonshire Row.
Chief Executive of Keltbray, Brendan Kerr, said: “We fully support The Considerate Contractor Scheme’s aims by carrying out our operations in a safe and considerate manner on our sites, and are delighted The City of London Corporation recognises our efforts in this way. I am proud of what our teams on these construction sites have achieved.”
The Considerate Contractor Scheme aims to encourage building and civil engineering contractors working in the City to carry out their operations in a safe and considerate manner, with due regard to passing pedestrians and road users. As part of the scheme, building sites and street works are annually judged on the basis of their overall performance during that year and on a site visit by a specially appointed judging panel.
