Cardiff Metropolitan University has been awarded Bronze for the Most Considerate Site at the Considerate Constructors Scheme's 2017 National Site Awards for its new £5 million Sports Hall opened earlier this year.
The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a non-profit making, independent organisation founded in 1997 by the construction industry.
The new £5 million sports hall on the Cyncoed Campus was opened in January of this year and completes phase one of the University's new sports complex development. The Sport Complex at Cyncoed will provide a new state of the art facility to compliment the range of sports facilities already available at the campus.
Construction sites across the UK, such as Cardiff Met's, voluntarily register with the Scheme and agree to abide by the Code of Considerate Practice. This is formed around five points; care about appearance, respect for the community, protection of the environment, securing safety and valuing the workforce.
Considerate Constructors Scheme Executive Chairman Isabel Martinson said, "The successes of award-winning sites demonstrate the importance of embedding the core principles of the Scheme's Code of Considerate Practice, creating a positive long-term legacy for the local community, environment and workforce."
Richard Clement, Projects Manager at Cardiff Met commented on the recent success, "Our site was selected from the top performing registered sites that competed in 2016, and we are extremely proud to have been awarded Bronze. Special thanks goes to Willmott Dixon and the team here at Cardiff Met."
