The aim of Ultra Sites is to achieve ever greater integration of a contractor’s supply chain to meet and exceed the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice. Being the highest level of attainment in consideration and best practice, they are the pinnacle of excellence across the construction industry.

Considerate Constructors Scheme Chief Executive Edward Hardy said: “Special congratulations to each award-winning Ultra Site and award-winning Supplier who have set the bar of considerate construction to an exceptional level. Congratulations also to each finalist, whose efforts in driving greater collaboration across their supply chain is commended.

“Ultra Sites represent a real turning point for the construction industry, by providing a way for the industry to work more collaboratively and realise the benefits of this greater integration for their workforce, community and environment. The winners and finalists of these awards range from small scale local projects through to large scale regional multi billion pound projects. This clearly shows how the Ultra Site model can be embraced by any type of construction activity, no matter the size, scale or budget.

“Thank you to everyone involved in making Ultra Sites such a success. We look forward to its continuing growth and development as the model to achieve greater standards in considerate construction throughout the supply chain.”
