A Suffolk construction project has been honoured with a national award after demonstrating the highest level of consideration to the community, environment and workforce.

Morgan Sindall Construction and Infrastructure scooped a Gold Award at the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s 2019 National Site Awards for The Pines Primary School Project in Red Lodge.

“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.”
