10 perfect site scores for Robertson Construction Tayside
Respected industry body Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) has awarded 10 consecutive faultless scores to Robertson Construction Tayside.
The CCS is an independent organisation which aims to raise standards in the construction industry, promoting the positive messages of ethical working, competent management, and environmental awareness.
Assessor visits, conducted by the CCS against its requirements of the Code of Considerate Practice, are split into three categories: Respect the Community, Protect the Environment and Valuing the Workforce. Each category is worth 15 points.
Securing top marks in each category, Robertson Construction Tayside achieved perfect scores in each of the 10 individual site audits across seven different projects.
Robertson Construction Tayside is currently delivering a wide array of projects across the region. Perfect site scores were achieved at Riverside Primary School, one of the first Passivhaus schools in Scotland; Wilson House, a new medical engineering centre for the University of Dundee; Harris Academy, an extension and refurbishment to the school that Robertson built; R&A Clubhouse, works for Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews; East End Community Campus, a multi-purpose new school; Innovation Hub, part of the Michelin Scotland Innovation Parc (MSIP) regeneration; and Perth High School, a new state-of-the-art school to replace the existing campus.
In addition to the site audit, innovation and best practice initiatives can be awarded as extra marks. The Perth High School project was recognised for both best practice and innovation.
The team was praised for hosting an innovative new programme, supporting HMP Perth residents build skills and to assist with employment opportunities. The programme involves an introduction to the skills required for housebuilding, constructing a house inside the prison. 80% of the materials used are recyclable, allowing the initiative to continue.
Also recognised for environmental responsibility, the team introduced disposable vape recycling bins at sites across Tayside. Robertson was the first tier one contractor to use this service on a construction site in Scotland.
Kevin Dickson, managing director, Robertson Construction Tayside, commented: “As a delivery partner of choice across Tayside, it is as important to our customers as it is to us that the local community benefits from the project and that the environment is protected. These repeated perfect scores illustrate the very high standards our teams uphold every day.”
