'Considerate' Costain Scoops The Awards
2 June 2014
Costain has turned in yet another outstanding performance at the 2014 Considerate Constructors Scheme awards.
The Group picked up no fewer than 17 awards as project teams up and down the country went about creating or improving the built environment while minimising inconvenience and disruption to local residents and facility users.
They saw their efforts to improve the industry’s image rewarded with seven Gold, three Silver and seven Bronze awards.
The full roll-call of successful sites follows. Joint ventures (jv's) or consortia of which Costain was part have the jv’s title given in brackets. Notably, three Costain Skanska jvs working on various aspects of the Crossrail project in London were successful at the Gold Award level.
