Chris Webster, Chief Executive, Miller Construction, said:
“We are delighted to have collected 13 awards at this year’s ceremonies – the greatest number we have achieved in any one year to date. Securing this level of success across the national reach of our business goes to demonstrate that across all regions our teams are committed to delivering consistently high quality projects in a professional and considerate manner.
“The CCS remains an important industry body aiming to change perceptions of our industry and we are committed to working collaboratively with them on all of our sites to promote good practice.”
The CCS is a national initiative which aims to improve the image of the construction industry by encouraging best practice beyond statutory requirements and only the very best performing sites are recognised annually at the awards.
As an Associate member of the CCS, Miller Construction registers all its sites with the Scheme and each site is monitored against a Code of Considerate Practice which covers areas such as consideration for the public, environmental impact, cleanliness, being a good neighbour, as well as being responsible, respectful, safe and accountable.
