We have been commended for our respect for the wider community, environmental protection and championing the value of our workforce after claiming a major industry accolade.
We have received the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) Gold Award for our work on the Library @ The Lightbox project, which forms part of The Glass Works – a two-phase redevelopment of Barnsley town centre for Barnsley Council.
The accolade recognises our attention and commitment to maintaining the project’s appearance, respecting the wider community, protecting the environment, securing the safety of staff on site at all times and recognising the value of our workforce.
Our ‘unprecedented’ level of community support was commended in the CCS Site Monitor’s Report, which also recognised the creation of an ‘employment and skills legacy in Barnsley’. We have provided more than 300 work placements and around 300 educational visits and workshops to date as part of The Glass Works project.
The report also recognised our pledge to maintaining the health and wellbeing of the project team, with health screening carried out, ‘first-class’ welfare facilities available, and promotion of healthy lifestyles and personal health guidance.
Ryan O’Loughlin, Director said: “We’re incredibly proud to see Henry Boot Construction’s positive impact on the regional community and environment recognised, as well our commitment to the safety and value of our project team. This indicates the huge impact that the company and the project has had on the local and regional economy.
At Henry Boot Construction, we continue to strive to offer the very best community, economic and environmental support as part of every project we deliver. We’re delighted that the Library @ the Lightbox project has had such an impact and we are dedicated to leaving a lasting legacy for the people of Barnsley.”
We’re delighted to see Library @ the Lightbox and Henry Boot Construction win yet another award. The Lightbox is a fantastic building that has had a major impact on the Barnsley community – it’s already become a real community hub and has had a positive influence on our town. We’re proud to work with Henry Boot Construction on The Glass Works development and long may these award wins continue.
