LLWR/GRAHAM Framework picks up major award

The success of the Framework partnership between LLWR and GRAHAM Construction has been recognised at the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) awards in Manchester.

Members of LLWR and GRAHAM were on hand to receive industry recognition with a bronze award from CCS, which was established by the construction sector to improve its image by raising standards.

It was the first time LLWR had entered the awards and the Framework was rated ‘beyond compliant’ in all five categories under scrutiny, in being awarded 43 marks out of 50 by CCS Monitor Tom Lawson on his second inspection of the LLWR Site.

Neil Fawcett, GRAHAM Project Manager, said: “No one should underestimate the amount of effort and time that has gone into receiving this recognition.

“We will not just stop still as we know that we can still do more. We are within reaching distance of receiving an even higher award and we will continue to do our best to ensure we deliver the best for LLWR and the wider community.

“There is a lot of good practice taking place within the LLWR/GRAHAM partnership and the award has just confirmed this.”

A centrepiece of the Framework was a new 4.2km Security Fence around Site, completed on time and under budget.
