Carillion has received a Gold Considerate Constructors award for its £185m printing facility in North London.Project HAL at Broxbourne is a printing facility for News International and was completed earlier this year

The Considerate Constructors Awards is a national award scheme which recognises sites which comply with an eight-point code of considerate practice.

Judges were particularly impressed with Carillion’s handling of public information, administration of its environmental policy and site cleanliness. They said: “An enthusiastic approach to upholding and exceeding the expectations of the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s principles was evident in this exceptionally well-managed project of which Carillion can be justly proud.”

Carillion project director, Tony Coyle, said: “We are delighted to have received this award which demonstrates how seriously Carillion takes its responsibilities to local communities. With a project of this size and complexity some disruption was to be expected, but this award supports the fact that the concerns and needs of the public and the environment were not compromised.”
