Jackson has been shortlisted for four Considerate Constructors National Site Awards.
Sites at Kings Lynn, Hullbridge, Great Yarmouth and Sandwich have all been recognised by the scheme for excelling in five main areas: community, appearance, environment, workforce and safety.
As well as engaging with local schools, the Jackson site teams engaged with the local community. For example, at the Sandwich project, during a tidal surge the site team worked with personnel from Dover District Council and members of the public to fill and distribute over 500 sandbags in a 12 hour shift, thus averting a crisis. It is pertinent to mention that at this point, the flood defences were still under construction. Subsequent tidal surges have proven the success of the completed defences!
The National Site Awards recognise sites that have raised the bar for considerate construction, by looking at the measures a site has put in place to be more considerate towards local neighbourhoods and the public, the workforce, and the environment. The three awards will be presented to the site teams at the end of April.
