Hinkley Point C wins gold at Considerate Constructors Awards!

Team praised for community engagement, appearance, workforce safety and environmental consideration

The Hinkley Point C project team were recently presented with a Gold Award at the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s 2018 National Site Awards. Representatives of EDF Energy and HPC contract partners Kier BAM and BYLOR were presented with the award at a ceremony held at Plaisterers Hall in London earlier this year.

The award recognises the highest levels of consideration and care shown by those registered with the Considerate Constructors Scheme towards their neighbourhoods, the general public, their workforce and the environment.

Hinkley Campus, our on-site accommodation, opened its doors to HPC workers in June. The state-of-the-art 510-bed facility is the culmination of much hard work and collaboration from our supply chain contractors.

The facility managed by HOST, a newly established business consortium of local suppliers who have come together to service the campus accommodation, is in size comparable to Europe’s second-largest hotel establishment (when Sedgemoor Campus also comes online later this year).

Rob Jordan, HPC Construction Director, said: “It is gratifying to see our team’s efforts being recognised for helping to deliver a vital infrastructure project while respecting the needs of the community surrounding the site.

Inevitably, such a huge project will raise issues for our neighbours, but it is how you plan for and rise to those challenges that determines success, and I applaud the team for their efforts. I’d also like to share that appreciation with our neighbours for their constructive engagement with us in finding solutions.”

 

Judged by scheme monitors visiting the sites, the company's considerate performance was rated against the Code of Considerate Practice. The site team were congratulated for their community engagement, appearance, workforce safety and environmental consideration.

Russell Lang, Kier BAM Project Director, said: “We are delighted with this prestigious industry scheme award. It demonstrates the collaborative approach taken on the HPC project for best-in-class considerate practice.”

Nicolas Caille, BYLOR Project Director, said: “Hinkley Point C is a project which inspires collaboration – this Gold Award is a testament to our efforts to work together as one team, demonstrating best practice in the construction industry.”
