|Two of Knightstone’s developments in Bristol have been nominated for Considerate Constructors Awards. The developments are West Street, the first train and build scheme for ex-service personnel, and J3, our iconic development in Easton. Knightstone worked with contractors Leadbitter, part of the Bouygues Construction Group, on both sites.
The Considerate Constructors Scheme is the national initiative set up by the construction industry to improve its image. The Scheme’s annual National Site Awards recognise sites’ exceptional standards of consideration towards local neighbourhoods and the general public, the workforce and the environment.
Mike Day, Director of Development and Homeownership, said: “We’re really pleased that these schemes have been put forward for the National Site Awards. We’re exceptionally proud of both schemes and the contributions that they make to the local area.
“West Street is the first train and build scheme of its kind, to accommodate homeless ex-servicemen. We’re delighted to have helped 10 individuals build their own homes, learn new skills and gain qualifications to help them back into the community and into work.
“J3 is a major development of 59 new affordable homes, a library and learning resource centre and seven commercial units. It brings something new and exciting to a previously deprived area and Bristol. We’ve worked hard with Leadbitter, Bristol City Council and the local communities to ensure that the development becomes a real asset in the area.”
The award ceremony will take place in London on 24 April 2013.
