Henry Brothers Midlands is thrilled to announce we have been awarded Most Considerate Site UK Runner-up at this year’s National Considerate Constructors Scheme virtual awards.
The winning project, Nottingham Trent University Medical Technologies Innovation Facility will focus on research and development, linking academics with industry to provide a multidisciplinary approach to medical technology development. MTIF is expected to become a major specialist innovation asset within the Midlands Engine, supporting industry and enhancing the regional economy in the areas of life sciences and healthcare.
This is a fantastic achievement for the project and the team collectively, with our effort and commitment to achieving beyond compliance recognised by the Considerate Constructors Scheme. Henry Brothers is at the forefront of contributing to raising the standards within the Construction Industry and our award win demonstrates this.
Environmental sustainability featured heavily throughout the project. This included a focus on ‘Go Green week’ and the promotion of Wildlife Wednesday, in which we provided free wildflower seeds and bird seed to all site members helping increase biodiversity awareness. The project is also on track to receive a BREEAM Excellent rating.
Other initiatives included student tours from disciplines within NTU University such as the School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment, where compliments where received: “The students were engaged, for them it is a steep learning curve as the majority have not had onsite experience before. The before and after was particularly poignant with students commenting on their initial inability to imagine the finished product.” Antony Pidduck, Lecturer NTU.
Chris Hill, Henry Brothers Project Manager said, “We are very proud to have been recognised for the high standard set on site with this award win and will continue to help improve the standard of the code within the industry”
The awarding body, Considerate Constructors Scheme commented, “The site displayed great contribution to the growth of the industry by encouraging young people to pursue careers within construction. Sustainability was also actively promoted on the project through various initiatives”.
