An awards spokesman said: “The construction site clearly demonstrated its considerate credentials, achieving 98% of construction-related waste being diverted from landfill.

“Acts of goodwill from the site team included collecting prescriptions for residents with mobility problems, and a darts tournament in support of the local football team.

“A local primary school also visited the site, as did BTEC students from a further education college.”

Edward Hardy, the scheme's chief executive, added: “Each award winning site should be extremely proud of receiving this prestigious industry accolade, which recognises their invaluable contribution to improving the image of construction.”
