Silver Award for Southern Demolition Co. Ltd in the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s National Site Award.
Southern Demolition Company have improved on their two previous Bronze site awards by receiving a Silver award for a project in Chichester carried out in the second half of last year.
This is the third year running they have received one of these prestigious awards. The scheme was created to improve the image of the construction industry and their banners are seen on the best run sites in the country.
The Surrey based contractor was rated as being exceptional in the areas of Site Safety and Appearance and were deemed excellent in the other categories such as Environment, Community and Workforce.
The project was the demolition of a shopping mall in the centre of the historic cathedral city. The site was surrounded by a dentist, a camera shop and a restaurant so particular sensitivity was needed in the amount of noise and dust so as not to cause disruption to the neighbours. To this end a block work wall was specially constructed by SDC Ltd to protect the camera shop that was relocated to the former entrance to the arcade.
This site was also selected by the contractor to be the location for the annual NFDC Site Audit which received accreditation for the excellent standards of safety, working methods and management.
Site Manager Tom Egerton received the award in a presentation in London with SDC Managing Director Paul Hunt. They are already in discussions on further improvements they can make to try and bag a coveted Gold award next year!
