VolkerStevin awarded Gold Considerate Constructors Scheme Award 2013

VolkerStevin also won two Bronze Awards for the Central Felixstowe Coast Protection Scheme and Duddington Sluice Replacement. All of the awards were presented on 25th April 2013 at the National Site Awards Ceremony at Plaisterer's Hall, London.  

The team at Duddington Sluice Replacement stood out for its innovative use of CCTV mobile technology to monitor the site at night for added security in this particularly remote area, and the Central Felixstowe Coast Protection Scheme was commended for its use of public liaison, which included a visitor's centre and an information gazebo on the sea front during the bank holiday weekend.

The VolkerStevin team was highly commended for Lower Todmorden and Walsden FAS Phase three, not only for the team's outstanding community engagement work but also for going above and beyond to help the community during the flooding in June 2012. A team of volunteers from the site  worked all through the night to clear the flood debris and mud from the streets in Todmorden.

Phil Power, Considerate Constructor's Scheme monitor, noted in his report that: "Some residents were escorted home through the floods by site operatives armed with prods to identify underwater manholes whose cover had been blown off by the up surging waters.

"The efforts and camaraderie of the entire site team deserve a very high commendation and I am sure the experience will live with them for many years to come."

Mark Tupman, Environment Agency project manager, said: "This award is a true testament to the invaluable assistance given to the community of Todmorden during, and immediately after, the flood events of June 2012.  Beyond this, it is also deserved recognition and commendation to the team's on-going commitment to delivering the very best in stakeholder-focussed construction."

Donald Murray, VolkerStevin project manager, said: "We are delighted to have won this fantastic award, it really shows how much the team has invested in this project and helping the local community. It is great for the project team to be recognised for their efforts."
