Irish Construction Off to a Flying Start With Gold Award For Dublin Airport

Roadbridge has won a Gold Award at the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s 2018 National Site Awards for its North Runway Construction Package 1 project at Dublin Airport. This is a huge achievement for the Irish construction industry, as it is the first project in Ireland to win a coveted gold award following the launch of the Scheme in Ireland in 2017.

The Scheme registers around 8,000 construction sites, companies and suppliers in the UK each year and is a huge force for good, helping to encourage and support the construction industry to raise its standards in line with the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice. Its National Site Awards are one of the most revered accolades within the construction industry. They recognise Scheme-registered sites that have demonstrated the very highest levels of consideration in respect of the community, environment and workforce.

There were many examples of outstanding best practice on this project; especially singled out for praise was the “collaborative team working” in meeting all of the project’s challenges, with exceptional outcomes achieved across all five sections of the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice.

This prestigious national accolade was presented recently by Construction Industry Federation’s Director General Tom Parlon at Plaisterers’ Hall in the City of London.

Considerate Constructors Scheme Chief Executive, Edward Hardy said: “To receive a gold award is a fantastic achievement for Roadbridge and Dublin Airport Authority. They have clearly embraced the highest standards expected by the Scheme, demonstrating exceptional performance in considerate construction and a commitment to improving the image and reputation of our industry. Since introducing registration to Ireland in 2017, we have been inundated with requests from contractors, companies, suppliers, clients and professional partners, all keen to register with the Scheme. We are thrilled with this commitment by the Irish construction industry and look forward to welcoming more registrations – and crowning even more exceptional Irish projects at future Scheme awards.”

Conor Gilligan, Roadbridge’s Managing Director, said: “Roadbridge are absolutely delighted to have won the first Gold Award on an Irish registered project for the North Runway Construction Package 1, at Dublin Airport. This award is a testament to the dedicated project and support team at Roadbridge and also to the excellent collaborative working relationship throughout the works between ourselves and the daa team. We look forward to continuing registering further Irish projects with the Considerate Constructors Scheme, as it is an excellent means of driving improvements across the company. The Scheme fits in very well with our core ethos of being a good neighbour.”

Daa’s Maurice Hennessy, who is the executive lead for the North Runway Project, congratulated Roadbridge and the North Runway team on winning the award. “This is a fantastic award for North Runway to win. It is of particular significance to daa that our corporate values align with those of the Considerate Constructor Scheme. We are hugely focused on the positive culture of safety and respect that it promotes and reaffirms, as well as a commitment to ongoing open communication with our neighbours throughout the works. North Runway is the most important project that Ireland will build in a generation as it will drive growth in tourism, connectivity and jobs for decades to come. We are delighted at Roadbridge’s success and commend them, and daa’s project delivery team, on their commitment to the principles of the Considerate Constructors Scheme.”
