Farrans picks up triple honours at national awards


Farrans recently picked up three notable accolades at the Considerate Constructor Scheme’s (CCS) National Awards.


The winners are sites, organisations or individuals demonstrating “outstanding commitment” to the Code of Considerate Practice in the areas of Community, Environment and Workforce in construction.

Farrans’ Govan-to-Partick Bridge project in Glasgow received a gold award on the night.

Whereas its Gull Wing Bridge project in Suffolk and Herring Bridge scheme in Great Yarmouth, which it delivered with BAM, both received bronze awards.

CCS judges said: “The project team’s management systems and focus on the community, environment, and workforce have been exceptional, resulting in positive community relations and the exceeding of ambitious sustainability and social value targets.

“The team actively worked towards reducing their carbon footprint. The site offered exemplary workforce facilities alongside a comprehensive mental health support programme, and effectively managed concerns such as equality, diversity, inclusion and respect to promote workforce wellbeing.”

Suzanne Lutton, head of stakeholder and social value at Farrans, said: “It is testament and commitment to the hard work of our site teams, working in collaboration with the supply chain, to deliver under the themes of the scheme that we have had this award-winning success on three of our projects this year.

“This is national recognition that our focus on delivering excellence as a Considerate Constructor is innovative, impactful and important. We always seek to leave the areas that we work in with a positive lasting legacy from our time on site and for these three important projects we are delighted that it is recognised we have delivered on that commitment.”
