Ardmore lands the treble! Construction sites win a hat-trick of awards

Sat 23rd Feb 2019

Ardmore is celebrating a hat-trick of national site awards for three of its projects.

The Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) announced awards for Pembury Circus, Durrants Village Faygate and New River House.

The aim of the CCS is to improve the image of construction and reward those who are performing at the highest levels. As an associate member of the CCS, all of Ardmore’s project sites operate in accordance with the scheme’s stringent guidelines.

Ardmore is delivering new housing for Bellway Homes and Peabody at Pembury Circus and Michael Powell, CCS monitor said:

“The continued and various interaction and involvement with the community is commendable and this plays a very important part of the development which the company (Ardmore) should be suitably proud of.

Safety and the working environment have a high priority and there are checklist inspection procedures, policies and initiatives in place to meet required standards.”

Mr Powell also found Ardmore’s performance and commitment “to be at the forefront of industry best practice”.

In addition, the Pembury Circus site attained an ‘excellent’ scoring for securing everyone’s safety, valuing the workforce and caring about and enhancing appearance.

In his assessment of Ardmore’s new retirement village, Durrants Village Faygate, for Helical and URV, Tony Harris, CCS scheme monitor said:

“Ardmore’s commitment to safety and the workforce comes across strongly and the impression is that this is thoroughly implemented at site level.

There is a commitment to embed a culture of continuous, positive safety performance and the policies and procedures in place for the care, support and development of the workforce are particularly well developed.

There is a good team spirit on this site and an open style of management continues to promote a culture for ops to feel free to express their views on all matters relating to site and construction activity.”

Durrants Village Faygate was also rated ‘excellent’ for protecting the environment, respecting the community and caring for the workforce.

Not to be outdone, Ardmore’s New River House, a residential new build and refurbishment project for Bellway Homes, also scored high marks from the CCS and was rated ‘excellent’ for respecting the community and securing everyone’s safety.

Colin Kemp, CCS monitor said: “This site has suddenly been transformed now that it is nearing completion. It remains a high scoring site and one that the whole team can be proud of.”

Cormac Byrne, Ardmore’s managing director said:

“The three awards from the CCS is great news for Ardmore’s site teams.

Recognition from the CCS confirms what Ardmore is all about – that we consistently deliver highly complex and challenging projects in a safe and considerate way.”
