South Wales developer wins prestigious award at 2024 Considerate Constructors Scheme Awards

Lovell accepting CCS National Site Award

Leading partnerships developer Lovell has taken home a prestigious National Site Award at the 2024 Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) awards.

The awards are run by the CCS, an independent not-for-profit organisation that works with the construction industry and the public to raise standards and build trust. For over 25 years, the organisation has strived to improve the impact of construction on local communities, the environment and workers alike.

The awards were held at Kimpton Clocktower Hotel in Manchester on Tuesday 23rd April and Lovell took home a Bronze National Site Award for its The Mill development in Canton, Cardiff. The development includes 358 homes for open market sale by Lovell, which have all been sold, and 442 homes for rent – which will be managed by Cadwyn Housing Association – for Tirion. The scheme is going ahead with the support of the Welsh Government and financial backing from the Principality Building Society.

The award recognises that throughout the construction of The Mill, Lovell has been a considerate neighbour to those surrounding the site and has upheld the high standards set by the Code of Considerate Practice, which requires respect for the community, care for the environment and value of the workforce.

James Duffett, regional managing director at Lovell, said: “I am delighted by the news that The Mill has been recognised with a National Site Award. At Lovell we take the standards set by the Considerate Constructors Scheme very highly and strive to incorporate those values into our operations, so it is great to see that recognised.

“The Mill is an excellent development, and we are very proud of the thriving community that has formed there.”

Mark Howells, group housing director for Tirion Homes added, “We are delighted that The Mill has achieved this status at this year’s CCS awards. Our commitment, alongside our construction partners Lovell, is about ensuring that we have been considerate neighbors, not just in this final phase, but across the entire development.

“It’s great that this partnership has been recognised for its ability to create value in our communities, as well as ensuring that we are respectful of the public, our workforce, and the environment. The Mill is now a thriving community hub and we look forward to welcoming our final residents over the coming months.”

Amit Oberoi, Executive Chairman at CCS, said: “Winning a CCS National Site Award is the mark of the highest levels of performance in the three areas of our Code of Considerate Practice: Respect the Community, Care for the Environment, Value the Workforce.

“Our Awards are very selective, and the bar was set extremely high. Only the top performing sites of the UK have been receiving an Award. On behalf of the CCS, I would like to congratulate all our National Site Awards winners”.
