Top performing construction sites to receive national recognition by Considerate Constructors Scheme

The best performing construction sites will be honoured by the Considerate Constructors Scheme at this year's 2017 National Site Awards.

The prestigious awards recognise those registered sites that have shown the highest level of considerate construction towards the public, the workforce and the environment.

More than 3,000 guests from construction sites of all different sizes will be attending award ceremonies between March 20 and April 7 in Edinburgh, London and Manchester.
